'We showed fight' - Lam

Pat Lam lauded his players for a clinical seven-minute spell, as late tries from Luke Morahan and Andy Uren snatched all five points at Franklin's Gardens on Sunday afternoon.

Uren sprinted in from 40 metres following Fitz Harding's one-handed pick-up and break, just minutes after Luke Morahan's converted try had levelled the scores. Saints had stung the Bears after half time with 21 unanswered points to lead 21-14 heading into the closing stages, but Lam's men hit back with scrum-half Uren racing in for a grandstand finish.

'We've been there before'

"It was never in doubt, was it," joked Lam. "It wasn't our best rugby, but I said before the game that it was going to come down to defence. We knew that Saints are a dangerous team, and when I saw their team I had a fair idea of what Boydy [Chris Boyd] was going to do.

"We said if we attacked well we wouldn't have to defend as much, but that didn't happen. With seven minutes to go we had to go and win the game, and that was probably our best rugby at the end. I'm really pleased the boys got the job done.

"I'm proud of the boys. I always say we take our learnings, but we've been here before and every time we come through it, it gives us the belief that we can do it again. We're going to probably need it again, but we've got belief that we'll be able to do it again."
