    I know the pressure's off them since they got their win at Bristol but still wasn't expecting that.

    Why is this happening? The one team I genuinely feel a bit of contempt for are hitting a run of form...

    The Church of latter day (Northampton) Saints commit the cardinal sin! :lol:

    HAW! Talk about what a way of ending an unbeaten run at home!

    Newcastle were **** (except heyan who is some sort of comic-book super-monster), Saints were incompitent and unimaginitive. 3 gifthorse tries (2 30-metre breakaways) in the opening minutes were the difference in the end, Newcastle after that never once looked like getting near Saints 22, let alone scoring. Saints only decent player was Diggin as is par for course these days, meanwhile Heyman (literally) single-handedly destroyed the Northampton scrum.

    Shocking match contested by 2 **** sides.
