Oh when the Saints go marching in?! Not quite as the Saints just fell short in the Super League semi-finals once again.
Their quest to regain their title narrowly evaded them in similar fashion to last season.
But credit to new boss Justin Holbrook, he assumed the reign’s midway through the season following Keiron Cunningham’s departure.
It was a gamble of long odds but such a move was considered clever as the Saints’ form wasn’t too good under their former legend.
More of that to follow, sit back and have a look at their season in more detail and where perhaps it could have gone better.
Best Performance: Hull FC 0-45 St Helens
Hull’s worst was St Helens’ best as the Magic Weekend annihilation of the Airlie Birds was the Saints’ best 80 minutes under Justin Holbrook.
Such a performance was perhaps for new coach Holbrook, who would have been very impressed afterwards.
To record such a heavy result against Hull FC, who were second placed at the time in front of a packed out St James’ Park, is remarkable.
Alex Walmsley starred with two tries, taking the Airlie Birds’ sizable pack by storm.
Regan Grace was another to bag a brace, with further efforts coming from Ryan Morgan, Morgan Knowles, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Tom Makinson, the latter’s being one of the tries of the season!
Saints showed no mercy, not even allowing Hull even a point for their woes.
This result also came off the back of a 53-10 Challenge Cup thrashing sustained at Castleford so such a turnaround made this win even sweeter.
Never write off the Saints they say and Hull learned a valuable lesson as this result helped the Saints bounce back as a major force to be reckoned with.
