If thats what Wakey do best, well give me that every game, every season, they played really well and if not for the goal posts we would be seeing all the expert pundits saying how brilliant we were tonight. Coming out of the ground tonight some of the comments about the team was unbelievable,. Some of our supporters want to have a reality check on the teams turnaround in the last 2 years.

Totally. We played a near perfect game. I am not going to be hard on them. I thought we had rotten luck. 2 hit the post kicks. From my seat the crush tackle decision looked harsh and the binning even harsher and that really took the wind out of our attacking sails for 15 mins. BUT as I said in another post, the 2 pen decisions I thought were poor. Should have taken 2 before half time. And you keep the ball OUT of St Helen's hands with 5 to go in a game like that. A 45 m pen under pressure on a breezy night, was too risky for me. I'd have gone for touch and a repeat set or 2..Not saying it with hindsight. I felt both decisions were tempting fate and, as lady luck loves us so much, fate vomited on our lap again.

The task in hand is still the same... Win two more games. Two tougher games to win now though. Tonight was our chance to put Saints out of the running but we blew it.

Yes. I was snarling walking away tonight and frustrated with a few key decisions and tactics but blimey let's get real, we are still in with a chance of the SL title albeit a longish shot. The reactions I am reading are ridiculous from some. Idiotic. I thought we'd be in the middle 8's. If anything, we were too careful tonight. Now it is Shush or bust I am hoping we just don't die wishing like maybe we did a bit tonight, As for blaming Grix..PATHETIC GROW UP

Very poor turn out from Saints though. Apart from Catalans, probably the lowest away following of the season.
Was my wedding anniversary today and I was there instead of out celebrating. Nice of the club to provide a clown act for me though.
yes was a shocking turn out by the saints fans,
congratulations on your anniversary choosing between an event and a celebratory day isn't easy and they let you down and all the fans the walked away in disgust showed what they felt too

we should be as a club pulling in another 3k fans just where and why have they turned they back on the club at a successful time, normally it would draw them in so frustrating

I agree Snowie.

An improved year last year, backed up by this one. It was said earlier in the year that improvements on the pitch.

I read the other day that there is a side out there, that have sent out flyers, promoting their club, with incentives, round to new housing estates that have sprung up in the city.

Not surprising, that their average gate is higher than ours.

Seem to recall, I had a similar idea months ago and posted it on here. Some on here thought it was a stupid idea.

After sleeping on it there is little less emotion now reflecting on last night. The game will be remembered for Finn's kick which hit the post and for the last Saints' try. Gutted as I am, we have to move on.

The task is now tougher than it was at 5pm yesterday, however 2 from 2 is what we need. I'm anticipating a positive reaction from the team next week. I just hope Hull stuff Wigan tonight and keeps us in fourth. I think that is the best outcome we can hope for.

It is "Fifita" not "Fafita"

If you don't know the difference between "there", "their" and "they're" I might get annoyed.

Emotions a little less raw this morning. Let's face it - we've had a fantastic season and it's not over yet. We could easily stay 4th. Win our next two games - this is Wakefield were talking about, nothing's impossible - and, if other results go our way, we could still get 3rd. Last nights gone, onwards and upwards!!

The best team lost and its not often you can say that.
Although Grix made an amateurish mistake but the main problem for me was the whole play.
Saints took the chance and it payed off.
For Wakey to think they could simply shut shop and come away with a win against a desperate Saints side I just don't get.
Anyway 2 massive games coming up against sides much better than Saints.
for me its an opportunity thrown away.

Understatement of the year. A win last night would have knocked Saints out of the race for the 4 and put some space between us and Wigan. We're now back to looking at other results and crossing our fingers.
Even Custer couldn't muster a stampede like this.

While disapointed we didn't win I can't help feeling a sense of pride in a team that gave their all. Who would have thought losing to a team in the play offs and staying in fourth at this stage of the season was a possibility 12 months ago. We're still in it and can still do it:CLAP: :CLAP: :CLAP:

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.
