St Helens' Dom Peyroux and Regan Grace celebrate after the win over Wigan

"It was a fantastic win," Holbrook said. "I thought we were good the whole first half. We had great preparation going into the game.

"The first half was as good as we've played. The second half got a bit sloppy but you're not going to play a perfect half."

The league leaders, refreshed by their first blank weekend of the year, produced arguably their best performance, running in seven tries to two in a 40-10 victory that ensures Gold Coast Titans-bound Holbrook's last match with Saints will be at Old Trafford.

Holbrook kept his emotions in check at the end of his last match at the Totally Wicked Stadium, but admits he could be tested if his side go on to win the title.

Saints had the game sewn up by half-time when they led 26-6 and England centre Mark Percival added two further tries in the second half as they earned another week off.

"There's one game to go and that's the one that matters," he said. "If we play well and win at Old Trafford I'll be emotional.

"Wigan will be wounded after tonight and they will bounce back, while Salford have been playing really well."

"I was confident the boys were going to play that way. It was the most relaxed I've ever been coming into a game and, for the boys to execute was brilliant to watch. It capped off a perfect home record.

"Our overall game was great, we showed what we are capable of and I'm happy to get a dominant win.
