SAINTS TOO SUPERIOR FOR WILDCATS

posted on 12 March 2016

St Helens proved too superior for the Wildcats on Friday evening taking control of the game early on.

Wildcats slumped to another disappointing first half after the Saints took control after just four minutes when Greenwood put the home side into the lead and piled on the pressure throughout the first 40 minutes keeping the Wildcats in their own half.

After just four minutes Joe Greenwood put the Saints into the lead, a grubber kick from Jordan Turner on the last play bounced in front of Greenwood and into his arms before getting the ball over the line, Walsh converted to make it 6-0.

It was not long before Greenwood got the second for himself and Saints after a pass from Luke Walsh found the second-rower and scooted through the Wildcats defence to touch it down, Walsh converted, 12-0.

Shannon McDonnell raced across the defensive line Jon Wilkin who was in the centre and had space in front of him to get under the sticks, Walsh converted to put the scoreline 18-0 with 21 minutes remaining in the first half.

The home side were close to getting a fourth try when it looked like Kyle Amor got the ball down, however the Wildcats defence were strong enough to hold him up. Seconds later the fourth came when James Roby held off the Wildcats defence to scramble the ball down, Walsh converted to make it 22-0.

The fifth came from Tommy Makinson after Saints created great play across the park to the right, Makinson had a gap in front of him to get the ball down in the right hand corner and put the home side further into the lead on 30-0.

A change in formation in the second half saw Mikey Sio replacing the injured Reece Lyne and goes into the back-row, Jones-Bishop switched to go on the wing and Hall at full-back.
