Saints maintain their 100% record and, after a professional performance to dispatch Salford in round 4, we asked our social media followers for their #SixWordMatchReport.


Our favourite from Facebook was Sam Stanley’s comment – which describes the game perfectly:

“Roby shines in professional away display”


Over on Twitter at @redveedotnet, @bold_ken impressed us with this amazing alliteration:

“Superb Saints successfully subdue stubborn Salford”

(Ken is the author of Saints: The Final Countdown


And once again Phil Lowthian sent us his report in the form of a verse:

“Roby’s superb double bursts Salford’s bubble”


Quite a few of your Six Word Match Reports focused on one man, the human dynamo.

And finally we’ll end with 2 questions sent in to us:

“How’s Walmsley? Didn’t do many minutes.” – Paul Brookes

“Any way back for Danny now?” – @hillj1968

While we’ve not heard how Walmsley is, we definitely think there’s a way back for Danny. There’s always the potential for injuries, loss of form and as long as Danny keeps working hard and his attitude right there’s no reason he can’t find his way back into the red vee.


Thanks for all the entries – even those longer or shorter than 6 words – we’ll be asking again after the home game against London Broncos.
