Saints Too Much For Brave KR


KR would open the game in the worst imaginable way, kicking out on the full from the kick off, thankfully Saints weren't able to turn the field position into points. St Helens would lose Adam Swift after just 5 minutes, the winger picking up a bad knock to his hand forcing Lomax into the centre.Saints would get a penalty piggybacking them downfield, from the resulting possession forward Luke Thompson would spin into the line and force his way over to open the scoring on the 15 minute mark, Danny Richardson converting to make it 6-0.

The Saints would take the easy points on offer, awarded a penalty for holding down dead in front, Danny Richardson making no mistake with boot. St Helens would have to hold their line for 3 consecutive sets, the Robins doing a great job of forcing repeat sets but unable to add points to the board. St Helens would be less forgiving with their efforts, Ben Barba grabbing his 7th of the season with a nice show and go to cross on the left hand side, Richardson keeping his 100% record in tact with the boot to make it 14-0 with 26 minutes played.
KR would find points just before the close off the half, Justin Carney breaking down the left before finding support from Ryan Shaw to put the Robins on the board 1 minute before the end of the first 40,  Shaw adding his own extras to send KR into the half 14-6 down. It would be a hard fought opening to the second half, neither side prepared to be dealt the first blow.

On the 56th minute Barba would get a lovely flat pass from Zeb Taia who would set the Saints star man in for his second of the game, Richardson once more making easy work of the conversion to make it 20-6 Saints. The game would have to wait 15 minutes for the next points to be registered, Jonny lomax making the scoresheet, Makinson offloading on the inside as he ran out of space to the grateful arms of the makeshift centre, Richardson hitting the post with his attempt from the right of the pitch.

Dominique Peyroux would make a rare appearance in the scorers, the big second rower putting on good footwork at the line and stepping through a gap to put Saints out further ahead, Danny Richardson once more converting to see the game out at 30-10 St Helens.
