BIOGRAPHY

Johnny Smith was quick around the scrum and a good organiser. This local lad made his debut in the notorious players strike first round of the Lancashire Cup in August 1976. He had to wait another two years to don the first team jersey again.

Johnny scored eight tries for the Saints over his time and was ever reliable when called up in to the first team. In all he played 81 matches for the Saints first team and was involved in some memorable games. He played in tour matches against Australia and New Zealand. Johnny collected a losers medal in the 1982 Lancashire Cup Final against Warrington. However, two years later Johnny was a substitute as the Saints won the Lancashire Cup in the Riversiders own back yard. At the end of his first team days Johnny played two matches in the 1985 Saints tour of New Zealand.
