On This Day: Saints become European Champions – 1971!

Each day whilst we are all in Lockdown we will recall a famous Saints moment from the current day thanks to Saints Heritage Society.

5 JUNE 1971

European Championship [second leg]: St. Helens 62-0 St. Gaudens at Knowsley Road.

The Saints inflicted a resounding defeat on the visitors, who were totally overwhelmed by some brilliant attacking rugby as we became European Champions. Kel Coslett gleefully showed the trophy to the fans at Knowsley Road – pictured.

Check out the team that took to the field on this day…
