BIOGRAPHY

Brian Briggs by Dave Dooley:
Brian Briggs was a stalwart for the club playing over 80 matches mostly in the second row position. He was signed from Huddersfield and made his debut against Oldham on the 15th. February, 1958. He was a hard running and tough tackling second row forward who added great steel to the Saints pack at the time. In 83 matches for the Saints Brian scored 4 tries, kicked 11 goals for a total points aggregate of 34 points. Brian`s first try for the Saints came at Hunslet as Saints cruised to a 33 points to two victory. Brian also had the pleasure of watching Voll notch four tries that particular day. On April 14th. 1959 Brian scored a try and kicked two goals as Saints thumped Hull at Knowsley Road in front of 18 500 spectators.

Brian managed to earn two caps for Yorkshire whilst at the Saints. He partnered Dick Huddart in the second-row in the resounding 1959 Championship Final 44 points to 22 thrashing of Hunslet.

His final match for the Club was against Wigan in the Championship semi-final defeat on the 7th. of May, 1960. He transferred to the emerging great Wakefield Trinity side of the early 1960s.
