Absolutely delighted with that.  Two wins in a row and managing to rack up a half century should give us some confidence going forward.

Salford gave up though.  We shouldn't get overly carried away with that win.  We've already lost twice to HKR this season and so next week will give us a better idea of whether we have improved.

What to make of that?

 

Positives. The first half was a massive improvement on last time. The team got a standing ovation as they left the field, despite being down on the scoreboard. They tackled well, they looked organised and I was even daring to think we could win the game. At 50 minutes, we were still in it, but the tide was clearly on the turn.

 

Negatives. The next 15 to 20 minutes were the stuff of horror movies. We just stopped doing the basics, tackling, clamping the ball, etc. Once Saints had breathing space, they turned on the style - not the Saints of old, but confident and flamboyant enough to turn a close game into a blowout in 20 minutes.

 

Overall. A better effort than last time and many fans did stay to give the team some applause at the end, unlike the abuse they got last time. I can't wait for this season to end. I can't get to many more fixtures due to holidays, but should make HKR and Widnes, possibly Catalans and Castleford. Looking forward to 2014, though.

The try scored by Turner in the 2nd half was something else!

 

Salford are still failing to do the basics, why play Gaskell at fullback he is obviously poor in defence. His open play kicking was  vast improvement though.

 

The Saints fan sat next to me thought the score was harsh but not me, we allowed a number of tries to be scored without putting a hand on the attacker.

 

Will also be glad to see the back of the season
