If this is a try, that's a belter of a pass from Briscoe!

Great win tonight considering how many starters were out. I thought Leeds would win by about 4-8 points. We have some cracking young players in the set up like Welsby, Smith and Lees.

Try some humility lessons instead ☺️

As a Saints fan you just want to hope they don’t bottle it when it counts again!

Baffling. Do you not remember the misery of the Potter/Simmons/Cunningham periods just a short time ago? Or the number of big games we've bottled over the last decade? Maybe if we were on the back of five years of winning every trophy available

Shows just how much Leeds need to improve/ship out deadwood before they can hope to match it with the likes of Saints and I hope that's  put paid to the mistaken belief that Agars the man to do it, his past record suggests otherwise and I don't think he's suddenly become a coaching guru?

Sky reporters are praising Holbrook for managing his squad.

Just about every team in the league all rotated their squads a lot more than Saints, but were forced to by injuries. Usually lots of them.  That's one reason  Saints are "So good".

I'd have given you that last season as aside from Walmsley missing most of the year we did incredibly well on the injury front, but that simply isn't the case this year. Roby, Walmsley, Coote, Thompson, Taia, Fages and Percival have all missed decent chunks of the season through injury. Holbrook has still chosen to rotate others bit by bit through the season on top of that, pretty much from the start, which has helped keep them fitter and reduced the risk of injury. This time last year we looked knackered and I do think Holbrook deserves praise for learning from that mistake.

Easier to rotate youngsters and fringe squad players into a winning team mind.

Leeds are atrocious at defending and they have some players that simply baffle me. How that Briscoe and Myler have hoodwinked people into giving them money to play Rugby League as a full-time job is just bizarre. 

We took our foot off the gas at the end and Leeds made it more respectable. 

On to a proper game now.

Yeah true, 100%, I have a short memory, though it would be good to have at least one other team challenging at the top.
