HERE'S a flashback to 2002 for former Saints skipper James Graham, who made a winning debut with St George-Illawarra yesterday, helping the Dragons to a 34-12 triumph over Brisbane Broncos.

It is the veteran England international's second stint in the red vee - having worn the Saints jersey with pride until the end of 2011.

He made his first team debut in 2003 and after establishing himself a a regular he was part of the the 2006 grand slam winning team.

Graham scored 53 tries in 225 games for Saints.

He won the Man of Steel in 2008 and went on to skipper the side in 2011, with the team playing all their games on the road but just falling short at Old Trafford.

He was a strong performer in the NRL with Canterbury Bulldogs from 2012, but moved to St George on a three-year deal in the off season.
