Each day whilst we are all in Lockdown we will recall a famous match from the current day thanks to Saints Heritage Society.
17 APRIL 2010
Challenge Cup RD 4: Saints 56-16 Toulouse Olympique at Knowsley Road.
An 8 goal debut for winger Jamie Foster and 2 tries apiece for Maurie Fa’asavalu [pictured] and Chris Flannery secured the win for Saints.
The main talking point was a red haze sunset which was a result of the eruption of an Icelandic volcano, called Eyjafallajokull.
Its billowing plume of dust caused havoc with air travel for over a week resulting in the French team having to travel overland for the bulk of their journey and made it to Knowsley Road with just enough time to spare!
