Long seeks attacking improvements

Sean Long is targeting attacking improvements as St Helens get ready to face Leigh on Friday.

Saints go into the clash on the back of a disappointing defeat at Widnes and the interim coach is urging his players to produce the form he believes they are capable of.

“No disrespect to Leigh but the focus this week is on ourselves – we have played them once, we know what they are all about and they have already beaten us once,” he told the club’s official website.

“This week the focus is purely on ourselves and getting our attack right. The defence has been looking good all year but we need to tidy up stuff with our attack.

“We have tried to implement stuff in video sessions which is hard as we have not been on the field over the Easter period. It will be good for us to get out on the field to put it into practice.

“They have got a massive pack and good strike so we know we are going to get challenged. Hopefully we will throw the ball about a little bit more and turn up with a better attitude. Hopefully we can focus on us and get a victory on front of our own fans.

“They were brilliant against Cas and to do it in front of them would be brilliant.

“We can’t turn off. We have to stick with what we do and show the rest of the teams in this league we are mentally strong and can challenge for those big games.”
