Well we won, somehow! Very thankful and as bad as Saints were, we kept at it. Our back play looked toothless which is a worry, but Freddie's reading of the game and especially his distribution made all the difference.

I thought Brew had his moments and Willson grew into the game, but Hurrell was really good and we really should find the money to sign him. His carrying always made ground in the thickest traffic and his strength in the tackle was very noticeable.

However, my MofTM had to be my player of the year, Elliott Stooke. Apart from doing all the donkey work, he put in some vital tackles and was always running in support. Ewells was Ok but didn't hold a candle to ES. I just wonder if EJ got the wrong second row when watching Bath!

Great to see Roko in the stand and sincerely hope Banners and Dunner are able to recover quickly.

We won a vital game, against a struggling side with fairly poor play, but will take the result and celebrate it. IIRR, that is our best win margin against Northampton for many a year. So well done lads but its a shame we could not get the bonus point.
