KEIRON Cunningham hopes Saints will learn a lesson

first_imgKEIRON Cunningham hopes Saints will learn a lesson from their World Club Challenge defeat with South Sydney Rabbitohs.The NRL Premiers ran in seven tries in a comprehensive win.“I’m really disappointed,” Keiron said. “We got schooled by the best side in the world. If we have to learn a good lesson from today’s game it is sometimes you have to lose in a big fashion to learn some lessons.“We did early season – when we lost in the friendly – and we came back stronger. This will be a good education for my players, especially the younger players.“At the start of the game, I wasn’t sure what set of rules we were playing to – we were playing to international rules but they certainly weren’t the ones I read – but the first 20 hurt us pretty bad. When you are playing against the best sides in the world you cannot afford to get off to starts like that.“We knew what they were going to do and didn’t counteract it. They completed at the high percentage and we didn’t.“Our middle played great all night; they worked hard, hung on in there, but our edges were horrible.”last_img
