BIOGRAPHY

Keith Mason by Dave Dooley:

Keith was born on the 20th of January 1982. He joined the Saints from Melbourne Storm in June 2003 and made his debut in Saints` 34-38 home loss to Wigan Warriors the following week. He has since firmly established himself in Saints 1st Team Squad and has impressed many by his appetite for work. His impressive start was rewarded in July 2003 with his selection for the England A` Team Squad.

Keith Mason was a hard hitting prop forward and sound tackler. Mason started his rugby career in earnest at Dewsbury Moor before he joined Wakefield Academy. He had a standout year in 2000 with their Academy side winning the Players` Player of the Year and Man of Steel Awards. Some sterling performances for Wakefield caught the eye of the Australians and he was soon on his way down under to further his skills and experience of Rugby League.

At ther start of the 2004 Keith and fellow prop Nick Fozzard hit a purple patch of form. Their dominance over other packs founded on strong running and neat offloads was one the main factors which propelled the Saints on one of their most memorable Challenge Cup runs. The Challenge Cup road to Cardiff saw Saints collecting the biggest scalps in the game. A stunning away victory against Bradford was followed up with home victories against Leeds and Hull both of whom showed tremendous resistance. A high flying and confident Huddersfield team were dumped by forty points in the glorious Warrington sunshine on semi-final day. Keith stood tall throughout this period exhibiting great power in attack complemented with a solid defensive role.

The publicity and pressure were huge as the Saints met Wigan in the 2004 Challenge Cup Final. Keith played magnificently throughout the Final and was arguably Saints` best `go forward` player at the Millennium Stadium. A 32 points to 16 victory witnessed Keith collecting a precious Challenge Cup winner`s medal.

At the commencement of the 2005 campaign Keith had made 34 starts and 33 substitute appearances for the Saints. He had scored four tries for the Club. His 2005 campaign was marred by injury and he found himself himself on the periphery of the first team squad. The end of the season swa Keith move back to his native Yorkshire to help Castleford revive their Super League status.Leter Keith moved to the emergent force of Huddersfield Giants.
