Briers famously played as an 18-year-old in Saints' cup run featuring at stand-off in cup ties against Hull, Keighley Cougars and a semi-final win against Salford.

Despite being dropped for the final in favour of Bobbie Goulding, Briers received a winners' medal.

Auctioning off the prized possession on Twitter, bidding currently stands at more than £1,000.

The Steve Prescott Foundation continues to raise funds for the Rugby League Benevolent Fund and the Christie Hospital in his name.

Steve Prescott was a teammate of Briers at their hometown club, the fullback having raised nearly £500,000 for charity during a battle with cancer before his death in 2013.

Now 41, Briers went on to play for Warrington and would go on to win Challenge Cups with the Wolves in 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Bidding ends at 8pm on Monday, September 9.
