    Why do you think it’s quiet, mate?

    Are Saints hierarchy hoping for further development from the younger players at the club?

    As you say with Wigan putting together a good squad already then Saints can’t afford to rest on their laurels even though it’s already been an amazing era.

    I think over the last three years G Ref we have hardly brought anyone into the club and instead we have upped the contracts of players already at the club.
    I would be happy if we signed a quality centre, winger & prop. 

  2. Saints have handed an indefinite ban to the idiot that got onto the pitch last Friday. They should’ve fined him as well and the steward should’ve pressed charges against him for assault. I don’t know what has happened to the first fool that ran onto the pitch, it looks as if he has got away with it.

    Interesting stats. I put together a list that is close to those figures.

    I think your figures are spot on RayCee.
    I have sacked off my mate at work. 
    I do enjoy looking at your blog it is really interesting. I just wish id have kept hold of all my old Rothmans, and then id have known myself what the average top tier attendances were in the good old days of the 80’s-1995.

  4. A mate at work who loves numbers & stats has worked out the average club attendance this season after the 13 home games. He worked out the attendances that have been printed in the press including the 14,000 at Saints on Friday. Leeds are the best supported club once again. But ten club have seen a rise in attendances
    1. Leeds 13,804 + 864

    2. Wigan 13,497 +1,219

    3. Saints 12.782 + 931

    4. Hull 12,345 + 1,582

    5. Wire 10,889 + 2,170

    6. Catalans 9,062 + 994

    7. HKR 8,710 + 922

    8. Leigh 7,253 - 

    9. Cas 7,170 - 372

    10. Salford 5,293 + 764

    11. Huddersfield 5,257 + 113

    12 Wakefield 4,299 - 314. 

    If these are correct (they may not be!!!!)  it’s good to see attendances improving. It would be great if the clubs could build on them for 2024. If Fev come up would they average more than Trin, i haven’t a clue ?.

    Saints have posted two very different attendances for this game - 10,350 and 14,036. Presumably you reckon the latter is a mistake? (see the bottom of this page - https://www.saintsrlfc.com/matches/2023/first-team/saints-v-hull-fc-2023-09-22/)

    I don’t understand how the club and the press get figures so wrong. There did look more than 10,300 in attendance but i wouldn’t have thought 14,000 was there. But i am not in charge of the turnstiles.

    10,350 at Saints which is up 2,128 on last years loop fixture against Wakey.

    I think the weather put quite a few of the floaters off, even the ones that stand with me who pay at the gate could not be enticed to come out tonight in the heavy rain. It was either stay at home or go the pub and watch the Leigh/Wigan match in comfort. Even a season ticket holder couldn’t be arsed coming. If i hadn’t have had a season ticket i wouldn’t have bothered myself. 
    Fair play to the FC fans who made the journey for a nothing game, hopefully there was no diversions on’t way home. 

    P.S two Saints fans got on the pitch during the game i hope Saints ban them. I don’t know if a spectator can be fined for going onto the pitch but Saints should if they can. The second maggot that got on the pitch threw a punch at one of the stewards who was escorting him from the pitch, the steward wasn’t a young lad in his prime either. But the Yoof who got on the pitch was embarrassing.

    We dwell on all the bad stuff happening in the sport, but I think this is something to be celebrated (although I know fans of some clubs will find that hard!)

    Hull KR are on the verge of becoming a "big" club - perhaps they're already there. A self-sustaining financially strong club, that can afford a good team year after year - a virtuous circle.

    Many of us have long said this is is what Superleague needs - more teams that can sustainably compete with the big clubs, improving the competition. Now we're getting there.

    An Adidas Retro shirt, id imagine one of them would be worth a few Bob now. 

  9. I was told there was a bit of bother at the HKR/Salford match last night. I don’t know how true this is because a mate told me he’d seen it on social media. He said both sets of fans were pointing the finger at one another and who started it. I just Hope something is sorted and whoever the culprits are get banned for life.

    I do wonder if clubs clamp down enough on the ones who cannot behave at matches. 
    We don’t have the support like football has so you would think they’d be easier to root out. Was it the same old story of someone not being able to handle their alcohol and losing it. 

  10. Does anyone know what the official attendances at the Wakey & Fartown games last week. It looked as if Rovers took a good following to Fartown, and id imagine it would have been close to a sellout at Wakefield. 
    I haven’t watched the Wire/Saints game yet but there looked a very good crowd on. 

  11. Great game and a fantastic atmosphere last night but i still can’t see Saints winning the GF. Our defence is like a stonewall but our discipline is shocking and we seem to have a real problem finishing sides off.

    A mate told me last night leaving the ground that Saints have scored six points or less nineteen times this season either in the 1st or 2nd half or both. Therein lies our Achilles heel, as we have little idea on how to create anything near the opponents line and finish off teams, along with a dreadful kicking game. 
    Welsby has some real big howlers in him but he has also moments of class, like the try saving tackle on Dufty.

    At the build up to the WC when some where claiming that Knowles was the best No 13/Loose Forward in the World(?). I said at the time and will still stand by my statement that he was not even the best Loose Forward at St Helens.

    Knowles hasn’t done anything for years, im amazed how some Saints fans rate him so much. I was told by a Saints supporter who stands behind me that “i don’t see what he doesn’t do 😆”.

    I also think Lees is overrated, he’ll tackle but when the club is down on props who can make the hard yards Lees is not that type of player. Mata’utia had a great game but i don’t think he is the answer for Saints, in moving him into the front row.
