HIGHLIGHTS – Subscribers can watch the FULL game on Saints TV.
After conceding an early try his first half hat-trick set the Saints on their way in this one-sided victory.
The hosts couldn’t compete with the power of props Noah Stephens and Alfie Sinclair down the middle. Both scored their first tries in the red vee powering over.
Further tries from Will Roberts, Ben Will, an acrobatic finish from Dayon Sambou and Walsh’s fourth completed the rout.
Five conversions from Roberts finished off an accomplished personal display. Again it was his partnership with Max McGucken which moved the Saints around the field and was at the heart of the win.
