DAY 10 of our November dip into the Saints picture archives and we take a step back to November 1978.

The Saints side lines up ahead of the tour match against the Australians with a 16,352 crowd crammed into Knowlsey Road.

The match programme detailed some outstanding past displays against the Kangaroos.

Alas, there would be no holding the Green and Gold machine who six days later won the deciding Ashes test at Leeds.

Saints, with two penalties from skipper Geoff Pimblett, held the Roos to 9-4 at the break.

But not even the torrential rain could stop the Aussies in the second half.

A week later the Aussies wrapped up the Ashes at Headingley, while a day later Saints lost 7-3 at Rochdale Hornets.
