First of all, earlier on in the season, Saints 'rested' quite a few at home to HKR, but they weren't good enough to take advantage. Surely this all boils down to their squad announced at the start of the season? If those players that played today were given squad numbers at the start, then they are part of the squad and can be selected whenever the coach chooses? However morally wrong that is, it's allowed. If though, 4 or 5 of them aren't considered part of the '1st team' squad, and they have been drafted in because of injuries, which then if questioned by the RFL, does not the club have to provide medical reasons by a doctor/physio as to why the 'normal', regulars can't play??

This is our own fault. Saints, within reason can play who they want. No point complaining about it.

We need to concentrate on our own failings. The only people that can drag us out of this mess are the coaching staff and the players. Based on recent outings, it will take a massive turnaround for us to survive

Ermmmm, yeah I actually said back on here after the second London game if we get dragged into any dogfight we have no one else to blame, I've probably said it 20 times on here since!!!!!!!!! But, given the amount of ill feeling this will probably create amongst opposing fans etc. I think a rules clarification is in order. I don't know what the rules are, I believe they haven't done anything wrong, but if anyone knows any differently, it would be nice to hear from them.....

The players Wigan were missing were injured. As far as I know most of the Saints players were 'rested.'

The morality of it isn’t the point, the point is we had our chance.

Regular SL players in red

Welsby; Swift, Costello, Simm, Grace; Paulo, Richardson; McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Smith, Lees, Batchelor, Bentley, Knowles.

Replacements: Amor, Ashworth, Eaves, Hazzard.

I make it 11 SL players who’ve played regularly or have masses of SL experience. No where near as drastic as some are making out!
