St Helens head coach 'happy and confident' going in the Super League Play Offs

Substitute forward Alex Walmsley grabbed two tries as St Helens overcame 12-man Salford 30-4 to effectively seal their place in the Betfred Super League semi-finals.

A third successive victory snuffed out Wakefield's lingering hopes of a top-four finish and lifted Saints up to third place with a healthy points difference, leaving Wigan likely needing to win by an improbable 90-point margin in their final Super 8s fixture.

Saints head coach Justin Holbrook says he's proud of his player for finishing in the top four and is looking forward to next week's game against either Castleford or Leeds.
