St Helens star Jordan Turner has talked down their recent form, insisting they still have a lot to prove this season.
A fourth consecutive league victory at the expense of Huddersfield on Sunday moved Saints level with Catalans in fourth going into the final round of the regular Super League season, with St Helens going up against fierce rivals Wigan.
Their recent victories have eased the pressure on Keiron Cunningham, who had come in for heavy criticism from a section of the Saints faithful after an indifferent start to the season.
But despite things improving, Turner, who will move to NRL side Canberra next year, insists they have a long way to go before making amends.
“I don’t think we’ve silenced anyone yet,” he told TotalRL.
“Obviously, we’ve had a change in form winning four games on the bounce, but the league is different to what it used to be. It is a very even playing field now and any club can beat another. I think the toughness of the competition has been underestimated really.
“It was a good win for us against Huddersfield first and foremost, but they gave us a tough game. It was end to end but eventually we came out with the result at the end of the day and that is all that matters to us at the minute.”
