Saints must have taken 2500 fans as the away stand was about 2/3 full


The stand holds 2,500 when full to the brim. There were perhaps 1,500 Saints fans in it.

You're going to have a sore head in the morning.


Don't tend to drink at games these days. Don't tend to drink much at all TBH.

Part of the problem is our players are getting over coached on becoming bigger and stronger and getting over coached in the wrestling techniques. Do we really want to keep on allowing lifting and twisting players and putting them in a position where they risk ending up badly injured? I dont
