Well 14-14 at half time. Can't complain. Just going to have to pick ourselves up second half though what we do to stop Picamoles, Burrell and North is a very good question.

Silly mistakes costing us again but still winnable. We need to get Luamanu running at Picamoles and make him defend more.

Re: Saints match thread

Partly? He missed a simple kick to touch and then missed a tackle on Burrell. Absolute shocker of a start for him. We're all over the shop now and we're gonna lose it from here.

Re: Saints match thread

God. Two great defensive plays to win possession. Quins momentum, ball goes to Swiel, he stutters and runs into contact and I'm starting to worry he's bottling it.

Then he gets the ball and nearly scores an incredible Evans-esque solo try...

Let's try this again: Tim Visser is having a bad game.

Lovely break from Swiel, great defensive effort though Kyle arguably should be in the bin. Need composure

Huge test of Swiel now

Swiel also to blame for that Saints possession with a terrible kick to Tuala. Kyle losing his head. Saints pressure tells - they've reverted to the lineout drive plays which are working well for them.

Saints in front, Quins need to get a grip on this game.

Yeah totally lost control with Dickson and Evans off and Horwill managing his injury. Horwill comes up with the goods at the end after Picamoles turns the ball over for the 6th time this match.

6th place for Quins. It'll do. Lots of improvement needed, not least in the brains department.

Yes, well done jk. Now to coach in some composure and game management. Stop kicking the ball away when possession is vital, don't try to score when nothing is on and commit to the breakdown when not doing so ensures a turnover. Sorted!

That was painful following on the Internet stuck at work but job done in the end. Plenty to work on and our squad still needs some improvement over and above what we have so we will see if Ellis will authorise any spending above replacing leaving players. Still an improvement on last two seasons.

 
Re: Saints match thread
DOK (IP Logged)
06 May, 2017 18:32
Well, as I see it that would have been JK's target for year 1, a top 6 place. Possibly not intended to be as nail biting as it turned out to be, but he achieved that target. So in as far as that goes, well done JK, well done the team!

Next season if we continue to build on this, I don't see a top four place being impossible. If we'd won four more games this season, we'd have made fourth place. Could we have won four games we actually lost, yes I think so.

 
Re: Saints match thread
DOK (IP Logged)
06 May, 2017 18:34
if, and here we go again, we pay up to the salary cap then Ellis can only authorise (more likely be given) additional money for the two out of salary cap players. ANd will those two players make that much difference? Otherwise it's back to figuring out how much money is freed up and how much you can buy for that money. Don't see David Ellis being involved in that decision at all.

Odd moments at the end Saints fans next to me happy with the win me disappointed with the loss. But we have 6th and Europe, it still doesn't feel like a decent end to the season.
At the start of next season I'll be happy to be in the champions cup but today we couldn't beat the team we were on direct competition with.

 
Re: Saints match thread

There's an awful lot of bottle been shown in recent weeks by the team, which is a good sign. I'd be more worried if I didn't think the team were playing for the coaches but they do seem to be.

Side note, Picamoles missed half his tackles and conceded 6 turnovers today. Yikes.

That game showcased the best and the worst of Quins. Some great handling, really good scrummaging, excellent last ditch defence allied to some poor discipline, headless game management and the odd lineout ballsup.

Looking forward to more of the good and less of the bad next season. I'm giving JK 7.5 out of 10 for his first season. He's done enough to give me hope for next season, and seems to be recruiting a more balanced squad to give us more chance of winning games while our superstars are away.

 
Re: Saints match thread
Bolly-Quin (IP Logged)

Agreed, Stooperman - the team showed more composure and defensive nouse than previously, not enough to hold out for the win, but enough to get the result. We'd have folded 6 weeks ago. Job done: plenty of graft to do - but it's a start. Well done Quins!

We'll take the win and hope Stade turnover Glaws next friday night. Lets be honest neither Saints nor Quins will be seeded well for next season so maybe for us a year in the ECC may not be such a bad thing. Plenty of noise from both sets of fans in a scrappy yet compelling game - I think we all gave Nick Evans a good reception which of course he deserved.

See you next season
