Saints won't be worrying about the shaky start.
ST HELENS lost their third game of the Betfred Super League season last weekend, giving themselves a 50 per cent win record so far.
In 2019, Saints lost the same number of games across the whole of the 29-game regular season!
It looks like they are going to have plenty of time to ponder on why things haven't gone to plan so far but I doubt there will be any unnecessary concern in the camp.
There are mitigating circumstances, not least an early season injury list putting key men on the sidelines.
And losing to the likes of Castleford, where Saints went down 28-14 last Sunday, is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The Tigers are capable of beating anyone, especially on their own patch.
So I dare say Kristian Woolf and his staff will have a review of the season so far and may look to tweak a few things going forward - whenever that may be.
Anyway, looking at the bigger picture, people have been saying for years they want to see the level of uncertainty and potential for upward (and downward) mobility we see in the Australian NRL.
Maybe that's what we've seen thus far.
