I enjoyed the game. It was very tactical for the 1st 60. Both teams kicking early, looking to force the error that never came. It reminded me of an NRL game in that sense. Leeds just ground Saints down though and finished their opportunities when it counted. The Moon/Hall combo will cause some damage this year when it dries up. I can't wait until BJB comes back in a month or so too. A 3/4 line of Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Moon, Hall has some points in it.
I thought Peacock and Delaney were immense last night too. I gave the MoM in commentary to Burrow but Peacock wasn't far behind.
Percival really impressed me. When I saw the matchup I thought Ablett would have a field day but that was one of the most impressive debuts I have seen.
The crowd was 12,200ish which was a shame. How 1,000 Leeds fans managed to get there, ill never know. I know a load who gave up and turned around. I was lucky that I found out about the crash on the M62 just after I set off so I went via Burnley over the hills. A 60 mile journey took 3hrs 15 mins and was closer to 100 miles I reckon there would have been another 2k on the attendance had it not been for the crash anyway.
