Saints had plenty first teamers out from what I saw

Hope the young lad who scored for Saints was okay -looked like a bad head/neck injury

First point - not really.  Unfortunately, of those senior players who consistently avoid injury and do not put pressure on the team by getting themselves banned, only Soliola and Wellens work hard.  The rest aren't worth the money they are paid.

 

Second point - it's not as bad as first thought.  Swift has a bad dead leg.  Apparently we also picked up two other injuries during the match, to Soliola and Ashe.

Unintentionaly funny reading Redvee.net at present

http://www.redvee.ne...ts-MATCH-THREAD

 

It seems churlish to point out that the "D grade" side that is the London Broncos with the "65 year old halfback on one leg" had only 17 fit players yesterday.....

Truly amazing to listen to these Sts supporters. If they had to suffer being a bottom 4 club i guess they wouldn't attend games at all. Such is the effect of being treated to so much success over many seasons.

I've made the same point myself in the past.  But then you are regarded as settling for mediocraty and having no ambition. 

 

The halfback point is a fair point that the fans make.  No other team heads out with 0 halfbacks,  some may struggle on 1.  

 

As for Gaskell,  Injured at present, but I have asked the question and supposedly  allegedly  it was written into the contract that he can't be recalled.

 

He's upset someone at Saints, but no one is talking.  Wilkin gave him a final Salvo in the press on the way out, so it could be players it could be the staff.


Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

Players ruling the roost at Saints still? Who'd have thought it

My first point was ambiguous - should have said it looked like they had close to a full team out. Plenty big names

What a fantastic feeling that was for once at the final whistle.

Tremendous effort all round.

Dont like to single anybody out but you cant keep Dorney down.

 

No doubt the Club will announce Gillingham next season imminently to kill the euphoria stone dead.
