A HUNDRED or so people armed with shovels helped get the game on and just over 5,000 braved the elements at a snowy Langtree Park to see Saints triumph.
There was a determination to get the game played on Friday - no matter what - but it made for one of the most bizarre setting for a Super League clash.
No wonder coach Nathan Brown declared that he had "never seen anything like it."
Photographer Bernard Platt braved the appalling conditions to capture the moment winter rugby league returned with a vengeanace to Super League.
