Game ReviewAfter 5 consecutive losses the Blues were mighty relieved to finally record a victory.
That it was secured only late in the match, that it came against the win-less Saints and that it featured shocking inaccuracy from the visitors suggest the Blues were far from convincing.
This game was played on the King's Birthday Monday.
