Game over, 23-23.

Well played Salford, point lost or gained, I wonder Tony. (Never doubted your lot, honest!)

Seems to be more draws this year than i can ever remember. I hope this doesn't start a golden point campaign as i wouldn't like to see that.

According to various pundits on Twitter this game wasn't the best quality but with an exciting ending. However, that Salford conceded only 23 points after all the points they have shipped this season so far must mark a massive improvement in their game. Either this is a post-coach-sacking one-off (and I've seen that happen at Saints in recent times) or letting Vievers go has been the best thing to happen to the Salford team. Time will tell I guess.

i agree. Golden point has created the odd very dramatic finish but in the main it looks awful as the players are knackered and can barely kick the ball

Happy with a point and less points conceded. Hope Alan Hunte continues to improve the team.

Well played Salford today, on the whole our team was pretty poor today. We need to get a grip on a game... :(

Where oh where has that sort of defence been so far this season? Wakefield had several sets of six on or near our line and we held them out (only just on one occasion, but we did). Standing back for some perspective, that has to be a point won rather than a point lost, but when you're in front and your opponents level it, you always feel that it was the one that got away.

WLYW2, I think you are a bit harsh on your lads. We tackled like our lives (or contracts :ph34r: ) depended on it and you came so close just before the end, I thought you'd got in at the corner. It was bitterly cold, with an icy wind blowing around, and that probably affected both teams, so "Well done!" to all 34 of them.

OF, no I didn't have kittens. It was far too cold! But I did have a very enjoyable pint of real ale in the Duke of York after the game, and managed to get warm, too :) .

Wakefield lacked authority up front today and consequently conceded easy yards and found it tough to get any momentum. Kirmond and Raleigh both out injured and Amor dropped for disciplinery reasons, Bravo Richard Agar for taking a tough stance.

Tim Smith off early in the game and Wakefield looked a little clyeless without him, neither Wood nor Sykes have shown anything like their 2012 form so losing Smith was a major blow.

Salford came fired up by Alan Hunte who also injected a bit enthusiasm by picking a couple of youngsters, they were basic but efficient and ground out a deserved lead.

Poor show from Trinity who must improve if they're going to get in the eight

Do you not think that was as much to do with a vastly improved defensive effort from Salford?

We went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakey today and it was absolutely chuffing freezing cold. Not exactly summer rugby over at Belle Vue.

It reminded me of one time we got a coach over from Wire for a Wednesday night fixture (I think) and just as we got there they announced it was cancelled due to unsafe icy terraces. I checked my phone today to see if the game had gone ahead!

Best defensive effort from Salford in a long time.

The game was also a perfect example of why the golden point should not be adopted here.

Wouldn't like to take anything away from Salford, even though they were out scored in the try department they deserved to win, but Trinity were awful, as bad as I've seen them play for a while.

The conversion did miss I was stood right in line with it, the wind took it away at the last minute. but then i wasn't 100% convinced by Sykes' drop goal.

Big big improvement needed in the next two weeks.

No improvement by Wakey required for at least a week, thanks.

Oi!! massive improvement needed thanks!! You wont have to worry on friday though, our injuries and form mean saints will get 40+... :(

Was the disputed penalty goal given by the way?

If the ball passes near to one upright, the Touch Judge assigned Judge’s decision to that upright is in the better position of the two to decide whether the ball has passed inside or outside the post and, in the event of disagreement, the Referee should be more inclined to accept this particular Touch Judge’s decision.
