Scott Anderson believes the Wildcats can take encouragement from their showing against St. Helens despite going down to defeat.

Scott Anderson took encouragement from aspects of the Wildcats performance.

Trinity led the unbeaten Saints 16-4 after 48 minutes but were hit by a ten minute blitz in which the visitors scored three unanswered tries to turn the game on its head and preserve their 100% start to the season.

Whilst disappointed not to come away with the result, Anderson took heart from more signs of improvement from the new-look Wildcats in 2014.

“We started really well as a team and our defence was quality,” said the Australian prop.

“It was a little bit disappointing that we didn’t come away with a win in the end but there’s definitely some improvements that we’ve got to do and take a look at but overall I think we’ve done really well.

“As a team we’ve only fully been together for 2-3 weeks so there’s improvement there as a team and I feel like we’re coming along really well as we saw in the first half.  We just let it get away from us in the second half.

“It was tough.  There was a ten minute period where we got a bit sloppy with a couple of penalties and a couple of errors that were a little bit soft.  They got a bit of a roll on and it was hard to stop.  It was disappointing but we’ll fix it this week.”
