Great shot by Westwood on Soliola.

Got to feel sorry for Soliola there. Middle of a Westwood-Morley sandwich with a slice of Bridge on top.

Is this a measure of the way refs will go in the playoffs?

Let anything go?

There are a few high shots and second efforts aren't there?

Why do Saints only start the game 25 minutes in?
"it is a well known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it."

Usual game plan from Wire ;)

Yes Stevo, his dive may have made him touch the ground half an inch in front if the line but the way he was holding the ball he knew it would roll onto line while in control. Also if he dived any later Ratchford would have taken him into touch.

Great finishing by Swift try Saints, conversion missed.

22-10 to Wire at HT. Looks like we may have a game on our hands.

If by that you mean Brier's kicks and our forwards driving after contact then yes.

I think we are probably mid-table when it comes to the naughty stuff.

Wire need to step it up again. A couple of poor last tackle plays and a couple of penalties has closed the gap.

If Saints score next it could get interesting!

Didn't see a knock on by Monaghan although Bridge went into touch anyways. Was Coopers shot illegal?

good aggressive defence by Saints. Lacklustre attack from Wire. Game on.

Harrison makes a huge difference to Wire when he's on. Saints haven't scored when he's been on.

I was wondering if Wire were ever going to be penalised for messing about at the ruck

What a pass to Lomax

True, they couldn't keep dominating Saints' pack like the starting pack did.
