“Next season we’ll be a different proposition” – How social media reacted to St Helens’ win over Leeds

Last night, Champions St Helens put the rest of the league well and truly on notice with a thumping win over Leeds. Saints dominated the first half scoring almost a point per minute in the opening quarter as they came up with their best performance of the season. That was my take anyway. What was yours? How did social media react to last night’s rugby?

One of the reasons behind St Helens’ win was Alex Walmsley. The powerful prop singlehandedly devastated the Leeds defence again and again with marauding surges through the Rhinos defence. To many he was easily the Man of the Match.

One Leeds supporter identified one troubling statistic about Walmsley’s performance.

Walmsley wasn’t the only star player for St Helens last night, however. Regan Grace again impressed.

On the other side of the fence, Leeds fans were divided by the defeat. Some felt it was to be expected with the number of players missing.

Others hoped Leeds would fail to make the top six. They fear they’ll only get battered again.

Others simply wanted to forget the defeat and move on.

That may be the philosophy of the Rhinos themselves. Now they have to beat Hull KR next week to give themselves the best possible chance of making the play-offs.
