Boston, Ashton, Fox, Sullivan, Bolton and Murphy. The best RL backline EVER.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Why did you not mention Gerry Round at full back Brian? Agree with you that theirs was the best back line GB have ever named and played.

Once in conversation off air and suggested a reserve GB to the one you mentioned.
My reserve team was - Eric Fraser, Ike Southward, Jim Challinor, Alan Davies, Frank Carlton, Harold Poynton, Jackie Edwards.
A very long time ago now.

Anyway as much as I'd love to talk about our history making 4 in a row even with all the injuries :wink: its now time to devote all my attention to the WC. I have to say that I have no issues in ignoring club rivalries when it comes to the International game. I can't seem to do the same with football and have little or no interest in the International game despite being a big football fan too.

So what do we think about next week? The Samoa team is start studded but given that 8 of them played in the GF, the England game is 13 days later so thats a few days on the ale for the Penrith lads plus the flight, jet lag and mininal field sessions. England being at home in probably wet and cold conditions gives us a big advantage. I think we could pull of a narrow win, all depends on the team he selects of course.

Seems very strange though to be having a warm up game with half of the expected side against Samoa missing. Surely the point of a warm up game is to build combinations etc.

Be interested to hear other peoples thoughts...


Out of interest what would your team be Stu?

Difficult one really with all the withdrawals and the fact that Bateman is banned. However it would be something like

Tomkins
Makinson
Watkins
Farnworth
Young
Welsby
Williams
Lees
McIllorum
Oledzki
Batchelor
Whitehead
Radley

Subs
Ackers
Thompson
Burgess
Knowles

You could argue that the starting props and interchange props could be swapped around. Also a part of me wonders if Lees and Bachelor are International class yet however Lees has a great engine and hits hard in defence. Going forward he still lacks size I feel but does have good feet and some movement in him. Batchelor will no doubt make way for Bateman after his ban.

The beauty of Lees and Batchelor now though is the amount of big games/finals they have played in. That will definitely help.

I'd just like to be able to watch the Fiji game. The RFL being the RFL, of course they don't make that easy.
