HAPPY Lancashire Day!

And to help those of us who remain proud Lancastrians at heart it is a day to recall the exploits of all those Saints players who represented the Red Rose county during their time at the club.

The Lancashire side competed against Yorkshire and Cumbria, and prior to that Cumberland, in the old County Championships which ended in 1983. There was even the odd appearance against Other Nationalities.

St Helens Star:

The county game was revived as a War of the Roses between 1985 and 1991 with Yorkshire winning all six encounters, In the Super League era Lancashire and Yorkshire played out four County of Origin games between 2001-03, with both sides winning two apiece.

Lancashire also played games against touring Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

In that time dozens of Saints players earned their Lancashire cap.
