St Helens R.F.C. are deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Saint #1166, former prop forward, Bryn Hargreaves.
Bryn joined the Red V from the 2007 season, making his debut away at Huddersfield on 4th February off the interchange bench.
Over his four seasons with the club, he would make 115 appearances, playing in our victories over Brisbane Broncos in the 2007 World Club Challenge, and Hull FC at Wembley in the 2008 Challenge Cup Final.
A fan favourite, Bryn was a popular player with supporters and teammates alike.
The Club would like to send our most heartfelt thoughts to his family and friends at this sad time.
Chairman of St Helens R.F.C. paid tribute to Bryn saying: “It is with great sadness that we hear of the death of our former player Bryn Hargreaves.
“Our thoughts and prayers are very much with his family at this incredibly difficult time. They have also had to deal with a prolonged period of stress prior this awful news.
“Bryn was extremely well liked and respected by his team mates and by all involved with the club during his four seasons with us from 2007 to 2010.
“He was very much part of the great Saints team of that era and was a World Club Challenge winner in 2007 and a Challenge Cup winner in 2008.
“It is a real tragedy that he has died at such a young age. He will be remembered with genuine warmth and with affection by us all.”
