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!


Wouldn’t matter to me who saints put out. It’s who is wearing the red white and blue and the way they are playing that is the problem

Sad thing is they would probably have beaten our lot, with Paulo and Richardson outshining our pair! :(

You can argue the point that what saints today is fair enough. But for god's sake don't stretch the point that they played 11 first choice players today. Touch disingenuous

Learn to read, I said regulars or have masses of SL experience, I didn’t say first choice.

Some on here are making out as if Sts played their U16s

I can read thanks ..but I take your point. However to make out the 17 they put out today is anything but seriously weak is incorrect. Hope they give us the same chance in a fortnight , however the way we are playing we'd still get tonked!

saints have earned the right to rest players - Melbourne storm did it this weekend in the NRL to.

they don't owe anybody anything - they have earnt this right by winning games and getting themselves in a great position.

Just as point of note, and on the assumption they beat Halifax, Saints play Leeds the week before the challenge cup final.....

It’s a very sad time for this club that we venting our frustrations albeit warranted in some ways at another club for our demise .Cleary our destiny is in our own hands and needs to be clearly spelt out to all concerned by MC just what he expects of them in the coming weeks ,and make them realise the buck has to stop with them .Its a very frustrating time to be a fan at the club as as it’s plain for all to see that there is a problem in the camp, what that is I haven’t a clue, but let’s just hope we can get the wins required to save us from the dreaded and then get this problem out in the open and get it sorted once and for all and move on to the next season in the top flight once again .

Bloody hell, we'd better start hoping that Halifax cause the cup shock of the 21st century.
With Warrington going backwards at a rate of knots, Saints could play their second string in every game till the end of the season and still collect the LLS.
