With two games of the regular season remaining and with the play-off places so tight the emphasis must be on grabbing two wins?
All you can do is win your games and see what happens, but let’s face it that is where everyone was at when we started the season back in February.
But we have got this far and with two games left our destiny is still in our own hands.
However, that seems to apply to just about everybody else in the top six and everyone knows that if they win their two remaining games they will finish somewhere near the top.
But because of the permutations of clubs playing each other it real is anyone’s to win and you have to think that whoever sorted out the fixtures at the start of the season must have had a crystal ball to set it up so nicely for the end of the season.
Obviously St Helens could get over the line tonight if they take a point from their game against Warrington and win the League Leaders Shield – but they won’t win their last game.
But about the only thing you can guarantee at this stage is that Saints will finish in the top two.
Having played Warrington a week ago has the longer break between games been of benefit?
We will have had nine days gap and Hull only one less, so really there is not too much difference.
But we have used the break to give the players some time off.
We had them back in last Friday, but they had the weekend off, and then were back in on Monday to start building up and preparing ourselves for the game against Hull.
Are you still looking for improvement from the players going into the play-offs?
We have plenty to improve on and we have to be far more consistent throughout games.
But we really have to decide to play out our sets of six and not overplay things.
We need to complete sets of six at high percentages and then take advantage of what we create – and at times we have done that.
