I have said the last couple of years this saints side are on the slide with their players getting older and slower possibly the slowest backline in SL now.
Mind you they could still be suffering from WCC in Aus so time to bounce back I think.

They’d nearly got over that but the clocks changing has put them off kilter again and don’t even start on the trip to France.

They've broke it already :lol:
Prior to the game on Good Friday I was confident that if we remained relatively error free, maintained good discipline and kicked Saints into their own twenty then we would win. I did also predict that it would probably be a low scoring affair due to the poor forecast.

Well our discipline was shocking and we made numerous costly errors, yet only succumbed very late on from a winning position with only twelve players.

Why was I so confident beforehand? Put simply Saints these days seem unable to attack from deep to score (and if/when they do its very rare). Would love to compare Makinson's tries over the last two seasons to Marshall's. Field's to Welsby's, Lomax's to French.

Give Saints a penalty in your own half and you're asking for bother. Make them come away from their own line and its comfortable. This is where we failed Good Friday.

That said they play Hull FC at home at the weekend, if they don't score 6-8 tries against them lot (at best) or even get beat again then they really are struggling, obviously can't see this happening as FC are shocking so should be a easy win.
Medium term - Saints obviously have a pretty serious rebuild to take on in the next few years. Really does make you think that they should've been more ruthless with the length of the contracts they've been giving out recently.

This year, it's all going to be about if they can get their troops fit and ready for the back end. Going out of the cup will give them up to couple of weeks off and means they can focus on just getting the job done in the league. If they can put out a near first choice team in the play offs then they'll be thinking they can beat anyone in a one-off arm wrestle. I certainly wouldn't swap with them though.
Absolutely disgusting. It is only a game of rugby when all is said and done.
