good shout Bullseye David Young is, add John Gallagher to that; my oh my those guys came with huge expectation , cost and fanfare from Union when i was a kid and what huge flops they were. i do wonder if they would have fared better had they joined other clubs of the time that seemed to go far better with cross over players, Widnes in particular springing to mind.

also the Wigan cast offs we seemed to pick up. Gregory, Goodway, Wane only Hanley came off really.

disagree with Innes and Iro. ok maybe Iro was a bit on and off but when on he was a treat to watch..but Innes was class most weeks from what i remember.


That was Iro at every club he played for, lazy but what a talent. If he had the application of say Dean Bell he would have been a world beater. However he always seemed to get himself motivated for the big games.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

According to Douglas, Mick Worrall never took a backward step. I watched him plenty in a Leeds shirt, he didn’t take many forwards either...

It was unconventional perhaps but Phil Ford was my favourite player when I was young. It is fair to say he probably fizzled out after a while but I seem to recall his first couple of seasons or so were pretty good including I think a couple of tries on his debut and a hat-trick in the famous 50-14, 12-man win over Saints. And yes, there was that tackle. It would be very harsh to include him here.

Ben Walker though, yes. I think the club hyped him up too much in an effort to pretend he would just slot in as a like for like replacement for Harris. If he'd stuck around for a second season I reckon he might have found his groove - but then he might have ended up blocking the path for some once in a lifetime young players so it was definitely for the best in the long run.
on the flip side nothing was expected of dunneman who played 6/7/9 gave his all and no attitude if left out for a younger player

I seem to remember us getting destroyed by Halifax at the Shay a couple of times. Clinch and then Dunneman were exceptional for them. I’d imagine Dunneman was a good role model too

I'm surprised it's taken until page 5 for someone to mention Eastwood. He should have been a great signing, but arrived late left early and whilst show flashes of brilliance didn't get to see enough of it

Bit harsh on Leroy. Swap him for Andrew Staniland who we signed from RU and swap Eastwood for the Aussie prop we sent home in 80s Peter Smith.
