St Helens coach Kristian Woolf said he was really happy with his side in their win over Catalans in the Super League restart.
The Saints eased past the Dragons 34-6 at Headingley in the first Super League game back.
Woolf said: “I’m really happy. I said all week I thought we came back good, we trained exceptionally well and we were expecting a good performance.
“They’re a good side and they certainly threw plenty at us, but our contact and our defence and the attitude showed was really good.”
Woolf said the return of Great Britain and England international James Graham helped them make a strong start.
He added: “You could see the excitement from Jammer to be back in Saints colours. He’s been terrific from day one.
“I don’t think you can have anybody better to help young players become better players.
“He’s got a real win-at-all-costs attitude and he’s tough, that’s why he’s got such a good history in the game.”
