Well I'm backing us.  I think since the Leeds game we have been improving in part of our game. We are far from a top class side, but we are now more balanced. We have a halfback and the backs have been more creative.

 

The pack looks a lot more settled with Roby back controlling things.

 

We have also added too our strike this week with Percival.

 

He just needs to keep his head up in defense.

 

But so long as Meli keeps his arms below head height, I think we will go ok.

 

I'm predicting Saints by 8.


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.

I'd go with all of that. 

 

I think we'll get some revenge for the last two meetings and will go with a slightly higher Saints winning margin of 12 - 18 points.

Dont think so at all. 5 day turn around time from a v tough game in France with Saints coming back into form after a v easy win. Easy win for Saints by 20 or so

Saints by 16.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I bet there was some booing at the halftime whistle. Is Howarth playing at 2nd row????!
