Saints still sit at the summit of Super League after a round 7 routing of the Castleford Tigers. We took a healthy following over to The Jungle, who were in fine form and good voice, and our followers on social media have continued that and sent us their #SixWordMatchReport.

Justin Holbrook thought the Saints “…brought their best performance of the year.” and our friends from @gerardcoaches on Twitter agreed, as did Stefanie Crellin over on Facebook:

Clinical display. Best of the season  – @gerardcoaches

Top performance from the mighty Saints – Stefanie Crellin


The match had been billed as Classy Cas versus The Entertainers – and plenty of you stuck with that theme including this belter from Val Unsworth on Facebook

Saintsational no need to say more

And one of our number couldn’t single out just one player for praise:

On Facebook, the kicking debate keeps rumbling…

Saints don’t need to kick goals – Gaz Hockenhull

We need a kicker dead bad – Alex Smith

Though it’s worth noting that Lachlan Coote kicked 5 from 9, which is slightly better (percentage-wise) than Danny Richardson’s 4 from 8 at the Jungle last year…
