Budding journalist Owen Farnworth, aged 13, gives his take on Saints' win against Warrington and the form of players

BEATING Warrington Wolves laid down a marker as league leaders Saints head into a huge few weeks for the club.

Saints went into Friday's game on the back of scratchy wins at Huddersfield and at home to Salford.

Overall the side was brilliant and I am sure this will continue into the next few weeks when Saints come up against tough opponents such as Leeds and Wigan.

Saints' first try came in the form of a ball on the inside from half-back Danny Richardson to the hero of the night Mark Percival.

Richardson, although not always perfect, has made a big difference since becoming a regular player in the side and a key man.

His kicking game has been a breath of fresh air and just what this side needed.

He is vital to the team's creative play too.

Richardson showed both sides to his game in Mark Percival’s hat-trick try as he made a fantastic break through the Wolves line and kicked the ball towards the left wing for Percival to latch onto and score the try which all but put the game to bed.

Players are fighting for places in the side as Justin Holbrook stuck with Tommy Makinson in the centres and Adam Swift on the wing, as he left out Aussie centre Ryan Morgan out once again.

The form of prop forward Luke Thompson has been particularly pleasing in the early part of the season. He was outstanding on Friday night, running all the hard yards once again.

And James Roby was again Mr Consistent, nicking a try from dummy half early in the second half to increase Saints' lead.

The Saints travelling supports was fantastic on Friday night as 2,500 of us packed into the West stand at The Halliwell Jones.

The fans never stopped singing and it maybe helped the team get over the line in the dreadful weather that they had to contend with.

The fans seem to be reinvested in the team and have followed them away from home already in large numbers as 2,000 went over to Yorkshire for the Huddersfield game.

It will be interesting to see the attendance against Leeds this coming Friday as I feel there could be a large crowd on in anticipation of a mouthwatering clash with the champions.
