  1. The paying public were given plenty of notice about the team Saints would have out, with Holbrook even telling people on Monday in the local news rather than wait till the squad was named. They could choose not to go. Which first team squad players should Saints not be allowed to play? Why wasn't us playing an "academy+" team an issue when we rested 7 of our starting 13 against Catalan in April? Oh, we won by 36 points...
  2. First game against Hull KR we rested Percival, Walmsley, Roby and Taia. London took advantage of us resting players, Hull KR weren't good enough to do so. It's strange to argue that Saints shouldn't be allowed to rest players for the sake of helping out teams who haven't been good enough.
  3. We might not be bad until we get to the point where we don't get two bites at the cherry.
  4. We had Coote, Makinson, Lomax, Walmsley, Taia out. A pretty decent side still but that's our best ball players, our best winger, our best prop and our best second rower.
  5. I think lack of desire is often exaggerated in Super League players. This is definitely the case in tonight's scenario.
  6. I'm glad you are because seemingly nobody else is! It's absolutely empty, but it does mean Saints are behind the sticks for once.
  7. I'm travelling up to watch Saints tonight as it'll likely be the last game of the season that I enjoy! Not too bothered about the result, I just want us to have a low error count and show the ability to build pressure. That is what we need for the playoffs.
  8. I would expect so, otherwise Saints wouldn't have given him the job.
  9. I coached your captain and your hooker (according to Facebook) for the Midlands u16s last year against City of Hull Academy, pleased to see they have continued to get playing opportunities!
  10. Last game of the rugby season today. Going to have a few weeks of easing up in the gym, but this is the most fun few months of the year from a gym perspective. Considering hiring an online strength and conditioning coach. Currently aiming to give up drinking entirely which would more than pay for it!
  11. Second team of a semi pro team is a bit different to second team of an amateur team in my eyes! And I say that with no disrespect to Wests.
  12. Maybe it's just me but I don't see the point in the Harry Jepson this year given the Southern Conference League exists and aren't eligible. If it's meant to be the best non-heartlands club, it's somewhat devalued if 16 of the best non-heartlands teams aren't involved. Is this the first time there has been a 2nd Team in the final?
  13. Over the last two days I've done a training course to become a qualified Mental Health First Aider! I wasn't sure what the course was going to be like but it was genuinely really beneficial. The fact that my employer have put 50 people through this course (at ~£300 each) shows that progress is being made, however gradually. If anyone is any position of influence, lobby for these to be introduced in your workplace. One thing I did find interesting was that Employment Assistance Programs are apparently the fastest way to access counselling in the UK. It varies by employer but often you'll be able to get free counselling, and it also sometimes extends to other adults in the family. If anyone is struggling, this is probably worth looking into!
  14. I've just finished book 84 of the year. Two of my favourites in the last month have been The Secret Barrister and The Last Lecture. The former is a very damning indictment of our legal system though!
