Hawks (Cup)





Saints held Hawks till 2 minutes before half time when they gained 5 points from a No 8 pick up at a 5 metre scrum. In the second half Hawks deployed plan B, which was to keep the ball away from the Saints forwards, when Saints got the ball they tried to pull off some very high risk off loads and passes in attempts to score tries from nothing. Hawks intrecepted passes, picked up loose offloads, caught chips over the top and punished everyone of them. A lesson for Saints in how to frustrate a team and punish them when they get desperate.
