HIS two tries off the bench to help seal the 1976 Challenge Cup Final over his home town of Widnes earned Peter Glynn a place in Saints folklore.

Glynn (Heritage Number 906) is number 12 in our Great Saints for February feature.

Best used at centre or stand off, although some coaches tried him at full back, Glynn's ability to know where to be and simply ghost into space was his trademark.

He scored on his debut in the red vee on August 1975, a tight 19-17 Lancashire Cup win at Oldham.

He would go on to score 118 tries, kick 86 goals and 5 drop goals from 258 appearances.

A fine attacking player, his highlight was undoubtedly the 76 win against Widnes, when he only belatedly made the bench ahead of Frank Wilson.

St Helens Star:

Glynn scored in the Premiership Trophy Final win over Salford a week later...and added the same medal a year later against Warrington.

There were international honours too, with Eric Ashton taking him on the 1979 tour to Australia and New Zealand. He gained two England caps.

Alas, Saints' 1977 Premiership win was their last bit of silverware as the team went into transition.

Glynn was swapped for Salford full back Steve Rule at the end of the 1982-83 season.
