Dai Young's men closed down Saints’ hopes of getting their first win at Franklin’s Gardens this season as Saints hosted Wasps on Ken Pisi’s 100th appearance for the club, despite the home side having the lions share of possession, territory and chances.
Running out for his 100th game, Pisi was disappointed that his side could not capitalise on their chances to get the win on his century but was happy to reach his landmark game at Saints.
“I think we did get opportunities in the game but a couple of dropped balls just let us down in the end.” Pisi told SaintsTV.
“We didn’t stress too much throughout the game, we always thought we were close to having the lead. It was just a matter of time before we could bring them down.
“But Wasps are a good team, they nearly got to the final last year. It’s a tough competition and they showed why they are in the top four.
“I think sometimes it’s not going to go your way and I think that’s what happened today. We played heaps of good rugby but the bounce of the ball just wasn’t going our way in the end.”
Speaking about becoming a centurion at Saints, Pisi commented:
“It was awesome. I love playing for the Saints so to be able to play 100 games and also run my daughter out in front of the Gardens was just a moment to cherish.
“I love everything about Saints. I love playing at the Gardens, I love the support, I love the town and even though its small, it’s such a tight-knit town and its rugby mad. I’ve made a home.”
