WHY I WAS A HOOKER - PART 1
Aged eight, just, I found myself at boarding school. On the first Saturday we had games afternoon. It was a school of 78 boarding pupils, and rugby was the only sports option during the Christmas Term.

The players can't speak high enough of the man at the top, his vision is clear to all and they are headed in the right direction, my question is this, would Saints have acheived the same result, better or worse without the injuries they had?
