THE 1976 Challenge Cup final between Saints and Widnes was talked about for years afterwards.

Part of that was because it would take another 20 years to win it again, but the main talking point was the fact that Saints' Dad's Army triumphed in the baking heat against the more youthful cup holders.

Here is a picture of both benches, side by side, at Wembley with young Harry Pinner and Graham Liptrot with arms aloft next to a substituted Billy Benyon.

Coaches Frank Myler and Harry Dawson are on the Widnes bench with Eric Ashton and Bill Boycott directing the Saints.
