I read a comment on twitter I think saying he went well, good kicking game and organisation. I didn’t see the game so other than that I can’t offer an opinion

I watched it on the our league app.
Smith did well, good kicking and passing game and I don't recall him missing many tackles. Sam Powell was outstanding, running kicking, tackling and was m.o.m. by a long way.
Jamaica were poor so it's hard to judge the Knights performance, I'd like to see them tested against better opposition.

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

I agree. Was always going to be a comprehensive victory for the Knights so I don’t think it can be read into too much. Perhaps a game v France/Wales/Scotland/Ireland would be a better test. The Knights is supposed to be a step up in competition and quality and I don’t think it could be said that this test was. If anything it was a drop down.

A team of blindfolded players would of given them a better test.

If you are going to have a reserve/emerging England team, at least challenge them.

How are the emerging nations supposed to improve though without playing the likes of the knights?

Maybe going a bit younger would make it more of a game. We didn't play any under 21s in that game.
