Not them but us!

Anybody know why Myler took so long with the 3rd conversion attempt? Couldn't just be for personal glory. Wasted the best part of a minute when we could have been chasing a 4th try.

Any thoughts?

I thought the same.. the fact we were in with a shout of a 4th try BP escaped the commentators too

Simple, thatís Saints all over, no urgency. Look at Quinns, Sarries and Wasps, they play with speed.

Our whole game and style of play is slow, thatís down to Jim Mallinder, and will take a long time to change with new players and culture.... (Sm138)

I see your point and I am sure that if the conversion had been in front of the posts it would have been taken more quickly. As it happens it was almost from the touchline and Smyler went through his normal routine. Perhaps, the forty five seconds between the touchdown and the kick allowed the team to draw breath for the last five minutes ?
