Ashton played two games for God sake. Don't make him a super star before his time.

It was hardly over the top praise.

Young Jack Walker was a 'superstar' long before he had played two games.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Ashton wasn’t being overhyped by the commentary team.   If anything they accepted some of his achievements last night as if he was already an accomplished top flight fullback.

The overhyping was done by a select few on here, myself included.   It’s just nice to see a decent, pacey and confident back line player light up the first few games and look like an international.   Super league hasn’t had many of those recently.   Something exciting to look forward to this year.

Only in the opinion of the two goons from sky.

Keep your hair on, nobody used the word superstar did they?

No granted you didn't I just think too much is put on some of these young players. As someone has already mentioned Walker at Leeds fawned over by sky,does my head in. Ps haven't got any hair left after watching Rhinos last few seasons.

Saints fans (understandably) aside, anyone not enjoying this display has the soul of a complete and utter Inverdale.

Mods, can you have a word with Futtocks. There's no need for this kind of language!!

Another thought on Saints...our reduced depth may cause an issue. Last night we ended the game with a backline of Welsby, Naiqama, Peyroux, Costello, Grace - only 1 player in their natural position.

Last year, with the same injuries, we would have started with Lomax, Swift, Naiqama, Percival, Grace - a lot stronger!

Not a criticism of the club. With Swift off contract and receiving an offer from Richardson we had little choice. We also need to give talented players like Welsby a chance too. He'll flourish sometimes and struggle at others, but will be better for the experience.

Already dreading playing Warrington next week … ?

If it's anything like our last visit to BV it'll be worth going! That was a crazy game.

Crazy game and one we should have won. If we give Wire that sort of head start next time I fear it will be a 50+ point thrashing!

Actually as good as he is going forward,  he looks very nervous under kicks, not matty russell bad, but, he doesnt plant his feet, and this collapsing under the ball is gonna cause him a problem at some point.

I am late to this, but that was a fantastic performance from Warrington. I honestly cannot think of a more complete performance from them in the last 10 years. They looked in complete control of everything they were trying to do. In the past, even when they have been good, it has been possible to point to a “but”. Not last night, it was an individual and collective masterclass. With Widdop still to come in. 

It looks like we won’t be seeing the same procession as last year. Now, if FC can fulfil their promise, we could see the best battle at the top for many years.

Might have been a better game if Lomax and Fages had been playing.

And Jonny Lomax.

I thought Lomax looked like one of Saints better players to be honest. He took the line on enough times and could have had more reward.

Well that's a good result for super league 

Maybe steve price has finally developed as a head coach 

The cc win mayve given them confidence to make the step up

Maybe saints will.miss Holdbrook too

I thought he looked confident as anything under the kicks?

12,500, though I was suprised when it was announced, it looked and sounded like more, I’d have guessed 2-3k more.

Are you the one who takes Baz and Tez seriously, every game they sound - especially Tez - to me like they are being interviewed for the job and hoping they are saying the right things, I should imagine their commentary and summarising is nothing at all like their thoughts 'off-air', it would be good to have some honest commentating like Phil Gould or Jack Gibson used to do.

Great team performance from Warrington. Saints weren’t at their best and had to cope with Walmsley pulling out and losing Percival but for Warrington to keep them scoreless was a great effort.

One thing I haven’t liked about Warrington under Price is how rigid and conservative they have been in attack so seeing them being more expansive will be good for them as they have the players for it.

I would have thought they had a new coach, having seen them start the season. Whatever Price is now doing, he should keep doing it. And who has got BMM fit? His whole body shape is different. Looks world class now.

Amazing what can happen when a move back to the NRL is on the horizon.
