FORMER Saints skipper Shane Cooper is one of the guests at a fans forum at the Totally Wicked Stadium in a fortnight.

The popular Kiwi, who was a genius with the ball in the red vee between 1987 and 1995, made 271 appearances in the red vee as a half back and loose forward.

Cooper, who skippered the side to their only ever John Player Trophy Final success, was recently inducted to the Saints Hall of Fame.

The forum is a fundraiser for the 2026 Academy Tour to Australia and takes place on Tuesday, 23 July at 7.30pm.

Joining Cooper and host Mike Bennett on the panel for the forum will be former academy tourists Morgan Knowles and Matty Lees.

Tickets are £20pp and includes supper and can be purchased via Dave Howarth on 07908 646569 or email

There will be raffle and auction items on the night and doors open from 6.45pm
