    Default James Bentley

    Not sure if this was around the whole ground, but was very disappointed to see a lot of fans around me in the West stand booing James when he came on, and near enough every time he got the ball.

    Not necessarily his best game ever (like others), but to boo the guy after 4 months out from a serious injury is poor form I think.

    Hes a saints player, and whilst that remains the case I will always support him

    I didn’t boo him when he came on but I was screaming at him by the end. Disgusting performance from him. A massive liability tonight.

    Unfortunately there are a core of so called Saints fans who are a disgrace. I can recall back to Kyle Eastmond and the fans once he announced he was going to union. Booing him, jeering him, swearing at him, abusing him. No wonder his head went. Bentley will get the same stick as hes signing for Leeds, no one would care if in his case he went off to the NRL Id imagine.

    He was awful tonight though. I like his niggle but tonight was completely pathetic.

    I like Bentley as a player, think he's been good for us but he was a liability tonight. Never known such an ill disciplined performance and he was one of the reasons we lost that tonight. An absolute brain-dead performance and I doubt he'll be selected next week if Knowles is fit.

    I don't think anyone would say that Bentley had a good game tonight, he gave away a lot of daft penalties.

    Having said that, he was being booed and chanted 'we all hate Leeds scum' at before he'd even touched a ball or made a tackle, that's going to motivate you to want to perform well isn't it. I'm sure the players aren't bothered at all when it's opposition fans, but you're own is a different level.

    I'd like to see any one of those people sat in their work and put in a good performance with people all around them, who are supposed to be supporting them, booing and jeering. Pathetic from a section of our fan base tonight and probably contributing to the performance they are now chastising.

    I’m not disagreeing with that, don’t think it’s as bad a many people say but I’m clearly in the minority and more than happy to accept I’m wrong on it. My issue here is purely around the booing as soon as he came on. To boo any saints player just seems crazy to me?

    I did, I was there and currently watching it back.

    It’s a bad performance, no doubt. It’s also the same attitude every Saints fan loved this time last year, just without conviction. Think to single him out is lazy fan commentary. Nobody seems to be blaming Tommy for example?

    Give over mate he gave away 6 or 7 penalties and was borderline with a couple of others. Shocking

    I was disappointed when he announced he was leaving but understand the reasons. I think there’s a very good player in there and we’ve seen plenty of it. That said, his discipline is a massive question mark over him and whether he’ll go on and be a real top player or just a good player.

    His performance tonight was an absolute disgrace, mind.

    Don’t think it was that bad, but my point is a different one. Nobody knew he was about to have a shocker when they booed him as he was coming on.

    Maybe being booed by his own fans as he came on after 4 months out didn’t put him in the best mindset and had an effect on his performance???

    No doubt the same ones that boo when the team take the knee before the game

    Leeds Rinos came close to signing Bentley from Bradford. Chev Walker pushed for him but he turned them down in favour of a move to saints so the whole im a leeds fan story is a complete farce he has chased the money. Good on him but a bit of loyalty should work both ways

    Its a short career. He went to saints as he believed they would develop him to where he wanted to be, we did. He is now offered big money to play back in Yorkshire where he is still living, he takes it. So what? He says Ive always wanted to play for my boyhood club Leeds, what should he say. This isnt what I want Ill win nothing here but hey ho Im on 50k more for doing the same job closer to home. Some saints fans need to give their heads a wobble. Embarrassing.

    I dont need give no head a wobble. I am loyal to MY club. One more big season at Saints and he would have left the club in a position where they had to pay him top money. He had one good full season then opted to chase the money. Which is fine its a short career. But my attention now goes towards Batchelor.

    He definitely had a problem with Peter Mata'utia, and vice versa. Looked 'too fired up' maybe ?

    I also think Bachelor gave away a few too many technical penalties.

    He did but some have them go the other way at times. Some loose carries.

    Bentley was trying to hard tonight and his dirty Leeds tactics caught up with him. He's a grafter all right will tackle all day but I'm not to upset he's moving on. Penalty machine.

    Makinson has contributed a lot to this club. Bentley, on the other hand, has contributed f*ck all despite what many say. One of the most overrated players to pull on the shirt in recent years.

    I didn’t boo him either but I might have well as done. Utterly disgraceful performance, long lay off or not, that helped cost us the match. It’s incredible that people compared him to Bateman because he isn’t anything special at all.

    Bachelor is garbage as well and it says a lot about the standard of Super League when he’s playing for Saints.

    Is this a surprise ? A massive majority of this fan base are extremely thick with an IQ lower than my cats. I saw a lad screaming at Thaler to die of Covid. Was about 25 as well. Disgusting
