I was absolutely gutted last night, but still clapped the team off - what a great effort against what is a very good Saints side.

We played well but didnt get the rub of the green, and Grix after playing 79 mins of SL rugby fluffs a kick of a bouncing oval ball. We should have won but thems the breaks. Hull and Wigan will be tough, but so what? We've already done Wigan at their place and pushed Hull all the way.

Fair play to Saints, they stuck to the task and got the rewards.

Absolutely, it's a shame some people on here don't apply the same perspective, sums it all up in a nutshell.

If the team feel as half as gutted as I do they will struggle to come back from that defeat, hope I'm wrong. Never felt this devestated over losing a game. Destroyed.

Well it's funny that because we defended really well for 49 of the 50 minutes you mention, and only let them in from a mistake by a player who you are defending's split piece of indecision, as for your last part, you must be a very clever person if you knew that Grix would make that error because up until then he had played well and never looked like putting a foot wrong so fair play to you for spotting it.


He's right though. As a neutral (albeit one that would have preferred you to win) I thought you stopped playing too early. You were easily the better side and managed to negotiate the 12 man spell well. But then instead of just doing what had got you into that position you tried to sit on it. Yes you defended well, and yes you would have won anyway if not for the missed penalty or the Grix error, but you allowed Saints to stay in the game when they were second best by a long way. The big decision that I just didn't get at all was the penalty kick that took you 4 points ahead. There was no benefit to that, all it did was give Saints the edge back in the field position stakes when you should have had a set on their line to try to kill it with a try. Even just getting tackled on their try line would have been better for you than kicking the 2. There is a time and a place to drill it over the touch line, and there is also a time where you keep the foot on the throat.

All if's and but's and none of it matters now but, the calls to go for goal or, not, proved decisive on the night, not to mention half the width of the upright.
Should we have taken the 2 points, from just left of the sticks just before HT ?
Should we have gone for goal to go 6 up (the one that hit the post) or, should we have stuck it in the corner and wound down the clock and possibly come away with a match winning try and of course, should Grix have just killed the ball and then allow us to take as long as possible with the restart.
So near and yet so far but, ultimately, we would still have had to win next week and again at Wigan the following week and in this respect, nothing has changed.

Onwards and upwards.

Come on Trin !

Having been at last night's match I just wondered if anyone who watched it on SKY could tell me how complimentary the SKY commentating team were regarding Trinity, or was it all about the Stains and how good they were?

not many stopped in the northstand soon as the whistle went they was off, to me shows lack of respect to a team that has over achieved from what the pundits said

I didn't notice it either way, which I guess is a good sign.

Cause the score was tight there was a lot of "we all know how dangerous saints can be" kinda talk

But the general mood was that Wakefield were the better team and looked like they're gonna get into the 4...

Until 2 minutes from time
