The Saints hit 2021 running and slammed on seven goals in a fantastic first quarter, effectively putting the result beyond doubt as they fixed up an inaccurate Kangaroos at Arden Street.

So, were the Saints that good? Were the Kangaroos that bad? What is the real gap between these teams? And who stepped up their game in this one to strengthen their case for a Round One berth?

Befoe I begin, these are not the Good/Bad/Ugly reviews I’d usually do for Home and Away games. They’re a little shorter (still 1.5K words) but I want to cover as many games in the preseason as possible and if I went GBU-style for all, I may die.
