Posted On Jul 31 2019 by

first_imgTHE Saints have been working with Merseyside Police and Liverpool Landrover to raise awareness among young people of the dangers of driving under the influence of drink and drugs.Players in the Academy were given messages about drink and drug driving as part of their continuing education and development on and off the pitch.“Driving is a privilege and the Club wants to do all it can to ensure that our young players have the best education into driving responsibly,” Player Performance Manager Neil Kilshaw said. “This session provided an excellent opportunity for our young drivers to increase their awareness and help them to make better decisions in the future.”Sgt Paul Mountford from the Roads Policing Department added: “This is an innovative scheme in which the players learnt about the effects of alcohol and the various drugs that can affect their driving ability, including medicines.“Young drivers are more at risk of being involved in collisions than any other age group and there is an enormous amount of ignorance of the effects of alcohol and drugs.“This was a great opportunity for Merseyside Police, St. Helens R.F.C. and a large local car dealership to team up to promote an important message”.A local Landrover dealership contributed to the training by loaning a state-of-the-art ‘Evoque’ vehicle for the day.last_img read more

Posted On Jul 31 2019 by

first_imgAfter running in 12 tries against Huddersfield last week, 11 followed at the AJ Bell Stadium as Justin Holbrook’s side put the Devils to the sword.Ben Barba was at his imperious best with a hat-trick, whilst Regan Grace and Ryan Morgan both scored braces in the rout.And 32 of the points came when they were down to 12 men too as Matty Lees was sent off just before the end of the first half.His tackle on Niall Evalds earning him a red card.Unsurprisingly the first half was all Saints and the brilliant attacking display began in the first five minutes.After forcing an error, Matty Smith, deputising once more for the injured James Roby, fed Danny Richardson and he linked up with Barba to send Tommy Makinson in.Ten minutes later, Makinson turned provider as he out-jumped Greg Johnson to collect Richardson’s high kick and offloaded to the supporting Dom Peyroux.At 10-0 Saints were already turning the screw and it got much better as from the restart they scored again.This time combination of Jonny Lomax and Mark Percival sent Grace away down the left hand side.Buoyed by his scintillating try against the Giants the week before, the youngster then stepped inside his opposite number to put Barba under the black dot for his 13th of the year.Shortly afterwards, Barba was putting Ryan Morgan over for his first of the night.Salford hit back through Tyrone McCarthy for 22-6 but the quick thinking of Barba stopped any chance of another which would have made it game on.With the Devils camped on Saints’ line, he read the mind of Josh Wood, picked off his offload and went the length of the field.Saints were now well in charge but any thoughts of cruising home with the points took a hammer blow when Matty Lees was sent off two minutes before half time.Salford’s Niall Evalds had cleaned up a bouncing ball but with player ‘un-tackled’, Lees flew in, struck the full back, and forced the ball loose.Saints duly touched it down but it was chalked off for that hit, and Lees was sent off.Holbrook’s men didn’t hang around to lick their wounds though and after forcing another error, Richardson, Lomax and Percival interplayed to send Grace spectacularly over in the corner.Saints 32-6 to the good at half time.Holbrook knew the Devils would come at his side in the second half, looking to exploit the inevitable gaps with a man advantage.And they almost did that early on as back to back penalties put them right on the visitor’s line.But Saints weathered the pressure, went up the other end of the field and scored.A towering bomb was knocked-on by young Jake Shorrocks and from the resultant set, Barba hit Grace for his second of the evening.And it got better as from the restart, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook went 45 metres and within the blink of an eye, Lomax had found Mark Percival for another try.Ben Barba then notched up his hat-trick as he took Richardson’s cute grubber.Parity in numbers, for 10 minutes at least, came as Junior Sa’u saw yellow for a late flop on Ryan Morgan.Saints should have gone further ahead too but Peyroux’s pass to Richardson was forward.The game was then halted for a significant period as Barba was stretchered off with a neck injury – but Saints regrouped and scored twice in three minutes.Theo Fages produced a bit of magic on 75 minutes before Makinson’s chip over the top saw Ryan Morgan collect for his second.Kris Welham crossed at the end for the Devils but it always was Saints night.Match Summary:Devils: Tries: McCarthy, Welham Goals: Shorrocks (1 from 2)Saints: Tries: Makinson, Peyroux, Barba (3), Morgan (2), Grace (2), Percival, Fages Goals: Richardson (8 from 11)Penalties Awarded: Devils: 8 Saints: 6HT: 6-32 FT: 10-60REF: C KendallATT: TBCTeams:Devils: 5.

Watch Government is controlling information – Delia

Delia was referring to the Leader of Partit Laburista Joseph Muscat’s rejection to an on-air debate during the television programme Xarabank this evening.During a short news conference, the Leader of the Opposition said that the public is being withheld information, as Government is controlling what is being aired on the national television station. Delia himself and Muscat were invited to participate in a debate during the programme Xarabank, Delia said. Delia added that whilst he accepted the invitation, Muscat rejected the offer for strategic purposes.The Leader of PN described that through this action, the public is being denied the opportunity to listen and follow a debate between the Party leaders. Delia reminded that it was in fact Muscat himself who stated that the election is between Delia and himself. Delia believes that this is pecking at democracy.Government had also adjourned Parliament towards the elections without being agreed upon by the Opposition, stated Delia. “We had already fixed a number of sessions where we were going to discuss embryo protection”, concluded Delia.Video: PNWhatsApplast_img read more
