The England international is back in form after a season out of the game.
The Canaries, who had a man sent off in Steven Whittaker, were rarely at the races against The Saints, who were reeling from their recent exit from the Europa League.
Despite the overall performance of the team there is no doubt that Jay Rodriguez deserves some credit.
The England international came on for Steven Davis at half-time and put in an excellent second-half performance.
It looks like, hopefully, the player has put behind him his horrid recent knee injury. One man who is pleased about that is former Tottenham striker and Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker.
He sent out this Tweet earlier today:
Great to be reminded of what a good footballer Jay Rodriguez is.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) August 30, 2015
Rodriguez missed all of last season with a nasty knee ligament problem, just when it looked like the former Burnley man was on the cusp of a place in the England squad for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.
Today was perhaps his best performance since returning to injury and if he continues to play like this, England caps might be back on the agenda.
