    Do you think that by the end of the season we will all recognise the fact that Theo's surname is Fages, not Farge?

    Really positive workman like start. All good for me. Theo played well, I think he needs to. Interesting Powell didn't pick Richo today. I do not think we have missed much with that lad.

    I hope so X 3.

    With that latter playing full back and getting trampled repeatedly. And I don't care if he admits he was wrong in the way he left.

    I didn't see the Hull v Huddersfield game, but I think ours was certainly the least inspiring watch of all of the other five games. I suspect this is going to be another season when the winning v entertainment argument gets trotted out regularly, as it did throughout 2020. Despite all of the three quarters scoring from plucking kicks out of the air or feeding off a dropped ball, they were completely starved of service throughout. It was a good win, but I enjoyed all the other games so much more.

    To be honest, the Percival no try resulted from a bit of decent service (if Lomax’s pass hadn’t gone forward ). I can’t honestly remember the moves that preceded the Lomax no try. Did Salford lose the ball? I think they did.

    I enjoyed the Leigh game best until Wigan won but the unsuccessful fight back by Hull KR against Catalans was pretty entertaining. I didn’t see Warrington v Castleford.

    Just an observation - when are we going to stop the knee bending nonsense. There are many ways to promote the rejection of racism without “taking the knee”. It has surely had its day?

    Spot on Les. I was disappointed to see Saints continue with this gesture, when everyone else seems to prefer to stand.

    The problem is that we over rely on Lomax coming up with a play on every set even more so when Coote is not in the side. Woolf has got Fages concentrating more on a kick pressure game and Roby doesn't scoot as much, when we lost Coote last season and Welsby played that position Wollf had him playing right behind the PTB in a narrow channel supporting the props. In the Salford game Woolf had Welsby playing with wider supprt play to dreate the extra man when going out wide but when Percival went off our structure changed.

    Who takes any notice of it anymore? Fully agree we don't need to keep doing it.

    Maybe we could get either Naiqama or Grace to dye their hair blonde and really make his day.

    Sadly, I don't think that would help. The man's a buffoon.

    Our opening SL fixtures are:

    Salford
    HKR
    Wakey
    Hudds
    Leigh
    Salford

    I know fixtures are aimed at putting 'plumb' fixtures back to when fans are able to attend, but that must be the 'easiest' (on paper) start to a season ever.

    What comes after is tougher - Catalans (a, but TBC), Hull (h), Leeds (a), Wire (h), HKR (a), Cas (a), scum (h). IMO we should be rotating from early on to keep players fresh and match-fit.

    I reckon its going to be a good season. Plenty teams have made good purchases and it should be very competitive. The biggest question mark probably hangs over Wigan. I think they massively overachieved last year. They do have some good youngsters but are at a real crossroads with O’Loughlin retiring and the Hastings rumours. Anyway, i think we’re still the team to beat.

    I do agree, but after that 2007-2011 period, I find myself just wanting to stretch ahead of 'perennial jammy b*stards' Leeds in the SL era trophies. I really don't think we get anything like the praise we deserve for dominating SL, and those 5 GF defeats play a part in that IMO (although even before that, focus was more on Bratfud, despite us amassing more trophies and beating them in every final we met in during the SL era)

    Field out for 5 months apparently. If Hastings does go that’s them left with Smith and Leuluai for halves.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.
