Matty Smith leaving Saints

Post by Josie's friend » Thu Sep 20, 2018 8:37 pm

Now I know he had his critics but I liked Matty, since next season will just be a limbo year until Edwards arrives do you think it'll be worth it for one year.
Pros
A leader on the pitch
Game intelligence
We lack a true #7
Can kick as well as anyone we have at the moment.
Takes some pressure of George

Cons
Age

We're not going to go out and pay a ton of money next year so imo it makes sense.

I have seen some silly posts but this takes the cake.

Not for me in a million years, not good enough for us or Saints.

I posted about Matty leaving Saints & Catalan were favourites to sign him on July 11th!

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

OP must have a replica shirt with "Smith" on it so is looking to get another years use out of it without spending any money - a bit like Catalans really :lol:
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

We never lose any games
We just don't win them (always the refs fault anyway)

I must be confused but which of our 7's is a better player and leader than Matty?

Unless AL is going to be given money to go out a buy a scrum half then the answer is none.
