I didn't think Saints were going to do it with some of their last tackle plays and errors. Glad they've done it after a testing season with injuries for them. Pleased for Nathan Brown also who seems like a genuinely decent guy. Nice one Saints. I think I must've lived in Saint Helens in a previous life such is my 'healthy' hatred for Wigan! Lol
Why some clubs would roll over and let Super League clubs use them to get their players back to fitness is a bit beyond me. If I was a regular player for one of those clubs and I lost my place so someone can try to regain some match fitness for a seperate league and club would annoy me. It's a shame we even need a DR scheme and some clubs can't get their acts together and have their own youth structures. I'm sure the RFL are told daily where they fail but where they really go wrong for me is with youth structures.
Sick of Stuart Cummins explaining rules I already know
He's quite a pointless addition to the commentary I think. It's embarrasing when the ref expert even gets the calls wrong during a game. I remember during a game (I can't remember which) and there was a brilliant bit of play which I think lead to a try and his response was "you've got to credit the referee there". I know he obviously has a huge interest in the refs but surely nobody watching is bothered enough to want to credit the refs for what the players produced.
