that's a toughie that one. on one hand we were toe to toe, but when a few things went their way they started to click a bit. but if nothing else that game showed that without roby saints are spangles.
on our forum there are a few suggestion that we were partially robbed.
1. final ball for wellens first try was a mile forward - he had to reach right back to get it. child was right on the spot but is as blind premiership linesman - in fact he needs the whistle inserting where the sun don't shine.
2. in the lead up to saints 3rd try (sure it was the 3rd) hohia blatantly obstructed - he even looked round to see where our man was, ref was gonna blow but bottled it..............not for the first time.
there is just a couple of points that may have had the scores chalked off, now no way to say how they may have affected the game but you never know. all i do know is that is the best we have played in patches since the cough *pie* cough game and maybe deserved a bit more for the efforts.
