SAINTS GAIN MUCH NEEDED SILVERWARE

Thanks Innings, a pretty fair reflection I would say.
My best moments were that kick from Malins which seemed to be sailing over the dead ball line until a gust of wind blew it against the corner flag for a 5m lineout and little Segun trying to tackle the enormous Naiyaravoro and being swatted like an annoying fly but still holding on to the big guy for dear life.

I also think its worth saying that because the saints players are playing first team rugby they had the advantage of game time over our lads. Rotimi mentioned after the game that some of our lads had not played for over a month making them a little rusty.

Excellent report.

Malins jinking run from inside our half all the way into Saints 22 and with the chance of a try if Whiteley had got his hand free for a proper offload was my moment of the match.

At the end a bit shy on experience and execution but still a decent performance given the disparity of the teams.

Well that was an interesting read and I think one or two points need a response and yes, fishing fans, you have a bite !!!

Saints have used the Prem Cup to blood young players, we have not played our first XV throughout as the editorial suggests. We are not in the same place as Sarries ( top two ) and after a bleak few seasons are in a rebuilding process in which some silverware and feel good factor is very much a part. No-one is pretending that this is as significant as success in Europe or the Prem itself but it is step on the way. There is nothing written down, as far as I know, that the competition is for youngsters alone; we see it as a combination of youth and experience allied to opportunities for players on the fringe to get a run of games. The significant factor for us is that players such as Marshall, Fish, Moon, Ludlam, Grayson, Mitchell, Painter, Dingwall and Furbank are very much part of our senior squad despite all being recent academy graduates. We also take a different view in the A league competition where again youth is mixed with experience and hopefully success breeds success.

I thought Sarries fans contributed a good deal to what was an enjoyable game in the belated afternoon sunshine. Your team gave it a good go but not quite there on the day. It may take a couple of years but I believe we are on the way back and if you are still at the top of your form then, we might be able to give you a game or two !

But, to be fair, DG, Saints have a pretty impressive injury list just now.

Saints found out what it feels like yesterday as Wasps fielded a very strong squad with 10 first team starters for the reschueled Premiership shield game
