    Didn't even watch it live as I was at Glastonbury though I must have had it taped and watched back. Probably why I remember it. Guardian says:

    One selection which did not change was that of Micky Higham, normally a hooker, at scrum-half, and it turned out to be a masterstroke. After a predictably rugged opening in the vile conditions, Higham scored two tries in three minutes to give Saints a 12-0 lead.

    Out of interest does anyone know when the last time we were nilled at home. Excluding WCC and Tour games. Bit of a clue. The team that did it was the same team that did it the time before

    Do believe it was vs Widnes, 0-19 in April 1980. 40 years and counting, outstanding record that.

    Correct.

    Previous to that it was Widnes in March 1974. Lost 0-5
    Before that one was Huddersfield in February 1968. Lost 0-5 in Challenge Cup 1st Round.
