Reading some of these comments , I mean first things first , anyone who goes out onto the pitch and plays rugby league deserves respect 

Errrmm... To all the critics... As a player in the fledgling Women's RL some 30 years back and a veteran of some 25 years service to the game.. If the women's game had been fully supported from the st

There's something about women playing sport that seems to rile people and I cannot figure out why. It's not the same level of quality of the men's game. But that's probably because the players ar

Saints in with the first try off the back of a set restart, against the run of play it has to be said. 

These Set Restarts can be underhand and sneaky imo.

First 10 minutes has been of really good quality and intensity 

Sts have soaked up the pressure and gone downfield to strike first.

looks baking hot so fatigue will play a role in this late on

York have been very direct and basic while Sts have shown a really high standard of creativity, they’ve run good lines, had great shape and good hands in attack.

St Helens look a cut above to me. They just look quicker and have more creativity.

Saints certainly seem to look a lot more creative and structured close to the try line. That stat that was put up on the screen close to the end of the half was interesting. I believe it was York 22 plays in opposition 20 metres, Saints just 11 and yet they are 4 scores up, granted 2 of those tries have come from breaks around the halfway line which just backs up the feeling they are more structured and alert, seeing the gaps in York's defence to be able go make these great breaks.

I remember a cc game from some years ago, Royal Navy v Lock Lane. RN were fit, organised, direct and .....That's it. No spark or depth or imagination. Saints definately have that today. York score!!,

Too easy for Saints! Pick up a York grubber on their own line, break through to halfway, set restart for holding down, a couple more tackles and then a few quick passes from one side to the other and an easy try in the corner. Fantastic passage of play. 

Saints 24-6 York, 55 gone.

Roberts in at the corner again.

Too much of what York try to do comes via Marshall and it’s much easier to defend against one play maker. There’s some good players in the York team and the coach needs to spread the responsibility a bit more.

Saints in again, another quick move across the field, tryscorer bounces off 3 or 4 defenders and puts it down no problem. 

28-6, 60 gone. 

That was a great hand-off on Andrade.

YAWN for me sorry prefer watching the girls play beach volleyball or the high jump watched for 3 mins and that was enough.

Sorry and on a side issue the girls from down under are going to run up some cricket scores in the WC.

This should be on comedy channel. 

They are playing in a Challenge Cup final live on the BBC.

You are sitting on the Internet showing your bitterness. 

Not judging, just saying.
