THE passing of former Saints coach Mike McClennan has been greeted by an outpouring of tributes from fans and players alike.

It has also triggered the discussion about the innovative techniques he employed during his three years at Knowsley Road - with mention for one incident in particular.

McClennan and assistant Frankie Barrow hatched the plan between them to use Big John Harrison's 6ft 7 inches with an unusual tactic.

They had even asked the referee ahead of the game if there was anything to stop it - and there was not.

Picking the ball up from dummy half he headed over the marker allowing George Mann to race past the bamboozled Sheffield Eagles defence to touch down.

It was outlawed soon after. This is how he did it.
