SAINTS men's and women's teams were both nominated in this year's BBC Sports Personality Team of the Year.

However, the top prize went to England's footballers who were runners up in the Euros.


Saints, who last won the SPOTY team of the year in 2006, completed the Super League and Challenge Cup double this year to make it three titles in a row.

St Helens Star:

The Saints women were invincible, sweeping all before them to win the treble of the Challenge Cup, League Leaders Shield and the Super League Grand Final.


The club was recognised at last night's ceremony with comedian Johhny Vegas presenting Saints' wonderful year with a video shot in town.
