I turned off in disgust for 10 minutes but then couldn't help but flicking it back on 😅

Saints should be 22 (or 20 since it was a tough conversion) up. Nothing wrong with that contest. Then a little bit more fortune with that Hull try. I wouldn't say it's a lifeline. We are second best by a long way. At least it gives us something to play for in the second half though.

Laughing at you turning back on pal, we’ve all done it I’m sure. The VR call was harsh, especially as sent up as a try but such is life. Glad to see Hull upping the tempo late in the half, just close enough to stay in it for now.

It's just so frustrating to see us looking so limp in recent weeks after what was a really promising start to the season. I know we are missing some important players but we look miles away from being a team that can compete at the top. At least we are showing some fighting spirit though.

Every season Hull are my dark horses…that either shows my lack of knowledge or that Hull flatter to deceive. Anyway here’s hoping that late surge pushes Hull on so we can watch a better second half.

One thing that does stand out to me, Saints desperation in defence. That effort to push players back even when they are well up on the scoreboard. The desperate efforts to tackle in to touch or to stop Swift grounding. If Hull match that then this could be a game.

On the contested kick no-try, I believe you are not allowed to steal the ball off a player who is in the air following a kick.

It wasn't a steal, it was 2 players getting the ball at the same time.

He's dropped that Fonua reason.

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.

The Hull player had hold of the ball first, it was only very briefly but that is slo-mo for you.

... and that Hull try as I was posting should be disallowed.

Come on, they both competed for it and one managed to get it thrown backwards.  It's a joke that was given as a penalty.

Which other things should we ignore (I know we ignore a lot but what should be added to the list).

Shame MZH switched off, it's livened up this.

Like I said earlier I couldn't stay away. We've looked much better this second half, if only that ball bounces a bit kinder for Faraimo. It's the hope that kills you though.

Like last night sin bin for that kind of thing is far too harsh. 

Whilst I do think the game is getting a little soft at time, that was cheap from Johnstone. He's got his back turned and the ball is gone. Wasn't massively late, but I've not got any complaints.

Nah the game has a commitment to protect players. if the consequences are too harsh, players will eventually learn to stop going over the line.

Cheers Johnstone 🙄

I certainly hope a hooker is right at the top of Hodgson's shopping list for 2022.

He's certainly cost us any chance of winning.

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Was barely late at all, sky showing it in slow motion doesn't help. It's not a blatant late hit on a prone player like we do see sometimes, it's barely even left his hands and he's tackled. Give a penalty, fair enough but never a sin bin for that.

Hate the slo-mo stuff..makes everything look 5m late.
