    Personally think Fages’ kicking game has been not bad, especially given Coote’s absence. Ball in hand, he’s the same player he’s always been.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with it, Paasi got in to the wrong position, thats it.

    Rubbish, I’m afraid. Pauli leads with the arm. Should have been off if we want to take head injuries seriously. Union has that right. No doubt we’ll get there.

    Couple of decent high kicks but he’s too limited to play scrum half, we should be looking to get Dodd in given how easy our first 6 games are.

    Another try assist from Fages’ boot tonight. We’ve not missed Coote’s kicking in play so far.

    We’ve literally scored two tries off his kicks.

    Fages with 2 assists. You don't know your arse from your elbow.

    From kicks any half in super league could have put in. You aren’t seriously trying to tell me Fages is good because we scored a couple of try’s off his kicks?

    Can you not read? I literally said a ‘couple of decent high kicks’.

    Hope this isn’t going to be the overall standard of refereeing this year.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Three tries off kicks and one from a Dodgy wrip from Percival. No obvious signs that our attack is any better. Obviously still early days and we are winning relatively comfortably.

    1 game in and you are talking rubbish ( as usual ).

    I think it shows how important Coote is to us. We really miss him when he doesn’t play.

    But we’ve done a good job on a potentially tricky opponent when all is considered.

    I think it was a decent hit out. The forwards won a tough and very physical battle and we defended with energy. There was a period in the first half where we seemed starved of possession so hard to play razzle dazzle in those circumstances. It just felt Saints were always in control by virtue of their speed in attack and attitude and shape in defence. Im still nit convinced on Fages (especially as he gets quality ball offf Roby which should not be overlooked) but the new signings looked good and it was the type of hit out needed. Ill rewatch again tomorrow.

    Positive that we still look fairly fresh whilst Salford look absolutely cooked.

    It’s almost as if Fages has played near enough every game for the last 2 years. I’m hardly writing him off after 1 game for the club.

    Decent enough win without Coote and Knowles. Going to need to be a lot better near the opposition line though, hopefully that’ll come with time and getting those two back.

    Did Percy go off injured?

    That was a good win. We were a little clunky in attack (probably a combination of week 1 and no Coote) but physically really tough and well organised in defence.

    Of the new guys I really liked the look of Thompson. I thought Matautia struggled in his first stint but looked more comfortable in his second. Paasi looks like he’ll be a good addition - hopefully he’s alright.

    Matty Lees looked great, I thought. Him and Bentley both look bigger.

    Great to have Percy back.

    FFS looked like he was getting spray on his leg. If he doesn’t get through this season in a reasonable way , it’s game over. It’s really hurting us now.

    No complaints from me overall. We obviously look stronger in the pack and look like we’ll be able to look after ourselves, and I think we tried to play when the situation opened up, especially Lomax who worked hard trying to create openings. It’s a week 1 game against a side we should beat, in an empty ground, tired bodies, etc, etc, and we did what we needed to do and despite some of the comments in game on here I was never remotely concerned about the result. Loads of positives for me.

    As for Fages, he’s a lightning rod for debate as per usual. I take it as positive and a negative really. He’s quite clearly not a top 7 and I think he stifles us with his poor decision making, but it’s an argument we’ve had many times. On the positive side, when the argument goes back to Fages it kind of shows that most of the other parts of the team are doing okay and Fages is the main issue of negativity. I’d rather be a good side with an iffy 7 who we can moan about than an average side with a top 7 who is wasting his time.

    Job done, 2 points, we’ll get better and I’m looking forward to seeing our pack up against the top sides later in the year already.
