Each day whilst we are all in Lockdown this week we will recall a famous match from the current day thanks to Saints Heritage Society.
1996 Super League Round 1: Workington Town 0 St. Helens 62 at Derwent Park.
Saints’ opening fixture in summer rugby saw their highest Super League score registered without reply until Halifax Blue Sox were beaten 64-0 in 2002! Right winger Danny Arnold scored four tries! In his next five matches he went on to score nine more!
Where you there? Can you name the Saints’ team that afternoon?
Check out the team that took on Workington on that day right here on Saints Heritage Society website.
