The penalty count was incredibly one sided.

Always on the back foot when you concede that many Pens.
Would also like to see Stats like how many times we get points when we are in the opposition half.
Our conversion rate is very poor.
Seem capable of the spectacular but not the bread and butter.

About 6 in a row related to scrums.

Easy to diagnose. Harder to fix.

Shame to hear comments towards the officials, or at least that's how I've read them. You really can't blame officials for pinging us at the moment, we make it easy for them by losing the majority of collisions

To be honest the scrum after scrum penalty was a borefest but at least two of them Exeter walked round and yet the penalty was given against the Saints.

We wouldn't have won but it would have been closer.

I was sat right behind the scrums and thought his too, on at least 2 of them. We had the thought that because weíd been shunted in every other scrum we couldnít possible have got a push on so we must have infringed, pen Exeter again.

Donít think anyone said the refs are dodgy just when you are down the bottom you donít get a fair crack of the whip at times. It seems as if they have made their mind up before play starts sometimes. Letís face it the refs havenít got much of a clue whatís going on at scrum time anymore than we do

Itís because most weeks our scrum goes backwards


If you go backwards youíre likely to conceded penalties not win them

Whilst missing the point your also kind of making my point.

Weíve been so poor in the scrum that last week against the chiefs we got a defensive nudge on and chiefs ran round, should have been a saints pen! But due to how poor weíve been and the constant infringements thereís almost the impression given that, saints have been hammered they must be walking round chiefs pen.

Once the impression has been given (especially over 60 mins) it becomes hard to prove otherwise
