Round 3 is all done and dusted, and after our hard fought win over the Leeds Rhinos we asked our followers on social media for their #SixWordMatchReport – here’s this weeks selection.

Our favourite from Facebook was Val Luck’s comment – we couldn’t sum the game up much better!

“Saints win edge of seat thriller”


Over on Twitter at @redveedotnet, @phillowthian sent us a rhyme (for the second time):

“Down early doors, big Alex scores”


Our pack got a lot of love after the game, and we mean a LOT of love:

“Thompson and Walmsley dominate in win” – Sam Stanley – Facebook

“Big Al’s back. That is all” – Barry Forbes – Facebook

“Forwards win it for lucky saints” – Jonny Edwards – Facebook

“Luke Thompson, last try, 33/1, kerrrrching” – Jason Tyson, betting responsibly – Facebook

“Big Alex Walmsley at the double!” – @knowsleyrude – Twitter

“The forwards got us through it” – @britheblue1979 – Twitter

“Best front row in the league!” – @stottydk – Twitter

“Alex and Tommo halt Rhinos’ charge” – @bold_ken – Twitter

“Pack dominates, Roby still the best.” – @houghton91 – Twitter

“Take a bow Alex and Luke” – @hillj1968 – Twitter

“Don’t make our front row angry!” – @saintdavid2911 – Twitter


A couple of fans are looking for changes to be made:

“Changes are needed, few need resting” – Johnny Wright – Facebook

“Need a back on the bench” – @wigtixfan – Twitter


Despite the win,  goalkicking is definitely still a hot topic and the half back debate rumbles on. It remains to be seen if this changes with such a short turnaround before Salford on Thursday:

“Only 16 men, Danny Richardson needed” – David Bolan – Facebook

“Our kicking will be our downfall” – @saintpablo91 – Twitter

“No game manager at half back” – @hillj1968 – Twitter


Best of the Rest:


“Never right off the Super Saints” – Colin Taylor

“Saints made hard work of it!” – Zoe Brown Smith

“Hard graft put in by all” – Jackie Taylor

“240 miles for a nervous win” – Amanda Matthews

“Saints scare fans two games running” – Linda Pownall

“Hard fought win , but something missing” – Peter Faz Farrell

“Saints satisfactory. Rhinos improving. Hicks neither.” – Stephen John

“Half time team talk really worked” – Gaz Hockenhull


“Leeds kept scoreless in second half” – @saintgeorge1986

“My hands have just stopped shaking!” – @sainttalibobrob

“Complacent much in the first half” – @halewkwoo

“Honestly never write the SAINTS off” – @sthrlfc

“Louie McCarthy is not a centre” – @low161

And we’ll leave the final word with @kebabfromgenos:

“Good start, poor middle, great ending.”

Thanks to all who got involved – we’ll be asking again on Thursday after the Salford game!
