I think you call it "winding up Saints fans".

The Wigan v Manly game at Central Park is an obvious one
The GB v Australia test match in 1990 at Wembley is another, in addition to being amongst a few Aussies who thought they only had to turn up..........
Many Wembley Cup Finals - my first in 1976 because of the extreme heat in the stadium, and the Wigan v Hull one in 1985 stands out.
Doncaster's last game at Tattersfield
Workington Town's Lancashire Cup win

One that sticks in my mind was a 0-0 scoreless draw between Halifax and Hull in a Challenge cup semi at Headingley, 1987 or 88 I think. I'd never witnessed it before or since for that matter, at any level of the game.

If memory serves the replay was very low scoring as well with Fax winning by the odd point.

My first ever live game! Watched the final test in '88 on TV and enjoyed it so, when I heard about the Wembley game, I thought I'd give this "northern" game a go. Been hooked ever since although, at first, I thought GB/England beat the Aussies quite often. I've learnt that we don't.

Maybe next time.

Always the optimist!

I enjoyed that, stayed on the ground for the entire Sheffield lap of honour.

Likewise, as did a fair few, probably still outnumbered the Sheffield fans at the end, but nobody mentions that! Reckon the average age on our coach was mid twenties and for most, if not all, it was the only (and still is!) time they'd seen their team lose at Wembley!

Cas v Hull KR, 1967. Off school to watch a second round Challenge Cup replay on a Wednesday afternoon.

Huge crowd trampled down the fairly flimsy fencing at the Railway End and thousands got in for nowt. I was gutted as I'd already paid my 1/-.

We ought to play more games on Wednesday afternoons. Massive crowds guaranteed .............
