Saints' Wolves scalp 'important' - Holbrook
Justin Holbrook watched as St Helens defeated Warrington 38-12 to go back top of the Super League and described the win as "important".
The Saints went into the game on Saturday evening trailing the Wire in the table after suffering their first defeat of the campaign at Catalans Dragons a week earlier.
Warrington also had eight wins from nine games and they pitched up at the Totally Wicked Stadium in confident mood as they looked to hold on to top spot.
However, a yellow card for Mike Cooper's high tackle was pounced on by the home side who grabbed two quick tries while he was sin-binned to help open up a 14-point lead at the interval.
Daryl Clark gave Warrington some hope when he crossed in the second half to cut the deficit to eight, but Matty Lees, Regan Grace and England winger Tommy Makinson took the game away from them and sealed a commanding win for the Saints.
Holbrook told the BBC: "I'm extremely pleased. The way we played the 80 minutes was outstanding.
"It's a good win. We know how dangerous Warrington are. It's a long season but that's an important win."
