Credit to Saints for fighting back to 18-18 after the officials had
given Leeds 12 points they should never have had. It could very easily
have been game over at 18-0 and all down to the officials. In the end
Saints threw the game away letting Harris score a soft try followed by
poor discipline, allowing Leeds to take a 10 point lead. There was
still time for a come-back but Connolly put paid to that. Instead of
sending Holroyd to the bin for a professional foul he awards Leeds a
penalty. Cunningham is then sin-binned instead a minute later, at the
time I thought he must have continued to argue about the Holroyd
incident, but it would appear he was pointing out the racial comments
a Leeds player was directing to a Saints player. The score was grossly
inflated due to poor officials, but Leeds were the better side on the
night. But certainly not comprehensively so.
With regards to the racist remarks, it's a shame McCrae didn't act as
promptly last season, then maybe Goulding would have gone a lot
earlier and Hunte would still be at Saints, and the team spirit of
recent times might have been in place from the very beginning of this
