The verdict for the team after this game, from the coaches, was definitely must do better after a narrow home loss against Chorley in this opening league fixture.
Although the losing margin of 2 was only the conversion of Chorley's Loose Forward Adam Jones to his own 23rd minute try, it may have well been 20 as Chorley outmuscled and outplayed the home team.
New found optimism for the new season got a reality check and only 2 tries from St Pats fullback Patrick Melling
gave Chorley any worries at the back.
There was some good effort's in defence with Harry Swarbrick
and Louis Fairhurst
, together with Melling standing out.
Next week is a game away at local rivals Ince Rose Bridge. St Pats will need to step up a gear to make an impression.
