TODAY'S Throwback Thursday goes back to a pre-season Ward Cup friendly against newly promoted Oldham in August 1982.

The Roughyeds were a handy side back then, having finished top of Division 2 the previous year losing just two matches.

Coached by Frank Myler, the visitors - with future internationals Ray Ashton, Andy Goodway, Terry Flanagan and Des Foy in the squad - led Saints for a spell.

It took two tries from 18-year-old substitute Andy Platt - playing just his second friendly in the squad after joining from Wigan St Pats - to snatch a 15-15 draw in front of a 2.000 crowd.

Platt would go on to become one of the best forwards in the game in the 80s and early 90s - playing 185 times for Saints before leaving for Wigan in 1988.

St Helens Star:

Here is the squad that featured that afternoon, with 17 of the 20 players being born and bred St Helens men.

See how many of them you can identify.

Full team list will be given on Saturday.
