Our young players are now believing in themselves and have the right mental toughness to go on with it. 10/10 for our best defensive effort of the season.

Yeah don't know about it being a grinding win, but happy they boys spoiled Benji's 250th. I found it interesting that WT are the only team he hasn't scored a try against - what a shame! :mrgreen:
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

For the mere factor we were down to 15 players it was a good win. Don't really think we grinded really.... Saints were there for the taking and we fell short of finishing that game off imo
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Defence wasn't that great at first contact. Hell of a lot of offloads and 33 missed tackles. Our scramble was good and Dragons didn't throw much at the boys. I'd give it a 6.5.

This.Saints are very ordinary in attack.So it wasnt that much of a grind.Correct about the 15 players though as Woods had to play big minutes and Alaioi had to play bigger minutes than he was used to.If not for the 15 men factor we would have gone on for a much bigger victory.
