Why the #### are these pages constantly infiltrated by these plastic scouse, banjo playing whoppers.
There's no proper rivalry between the two sides, only some made up guff from Sky, when Stains started winning close games from about 15 years ago, onwards., yet there's post after post from some of them.
We have no particular problems from posters from other clubs. In fact, I even look forward to posts from Nicky Kiss and Rogues Gallery from "that"side, but, posts from the usual suspects from Merseyside, and my eyes immediately roll.

On thread. Another positive signing. Well done to all concerned
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

Sounds like an exciting signing. Not sure how the finances work as there is something about cross-code switches somewhere. However, if we have used the Kev Brown dispensation money does it confirm that he will not play for us again?

My forum name has nothing to do with saint helens . Where he going to play ? In place of who ,jk Goodwin, Atkins, king, curry, Hughes, Livett, Mamo, because at 31 he’s not going to get any better. So why not give one off the young lads a go like Robson, Johnson, Davies,



Apologies.

Price & Fitzpatrick are tasked with pulling together the best squad they can, using all the exemptions available to them. Sentimentality about youngsters shouldn’t come in to it, just build the best squad you can. Johnson et al will still get their chance.

As for where he’ll play, I guess he’s being lined up as centre to replace Atkins. We need to run with 3 quality centres in a squad, so we have space there for 2020 (Goodwin, King, Burrell).

On another note, our salary spend for 2020 must be set to be the biggest in SL history you’d think. Two marquees and a RU player off cap.

Another over the hill player taking the place of a youngster, it is typical this from Warrington.You have young lads in your 1st team squad that I know are absolutely ripping it up in training day in day out with limited opportunities then they sign a 30+ year old player that knocks them back again. Give the young lads a shot ffs


Why don't Saints get in and snap these young lads up, show Wire what they are missing. A few years with Saints coaching and who knows what their potential could be?

Not enthusiastic about this signing, as I think it's gamble. Hope he does what SP & KF believe he can do.

It's a good signing for the game of Rugby League, more publicity. Will he make it, who knows but he won't count fully on the cap for his first couple of seasons. Yes it's a risk, only time will tell if it was the right move.

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row
