BIOGRAPHY

Lou Hutt by Alex Service

Louis Stanley George (Lou) Hutt was one of three Kiwis who signed for the Saints in sensational fashion before the start of the 1929-30 season. Lou was also joined at St.Helens by second-rower Trevor Hall and winger Roy Hardgrave. All three had played against the touring Lions in the final Test of the 1928 tour at Christchurch and had expressed a desire to play in England. Hardgrave signed for £100, with Hutt and Hall secured for half that amount.

Known as ‘The Daddy of them all,’ Lou Hutt was a strongly-built man who was extremely difficult to tackle and despite his status as a forward had the pace to play in the threequarters if required. A solid scrummager and workhorse, Lou played as blind-side prop and occasionally as hooker in his first season, when Saints were one of the best sides in the Rugby League. Unfortunately they were to end up with no silverware, as a result of an indifferent performance at Wembley against Widnes and a controversial Championship semi-final at Knowsley Road when Alf Ellaby was obstructed out of the game!

Lou showed his versatility in the 1930-31 campaign when he appeared as a loose forward for several matches, with Ebor Hill and Lou Houghton prominent in the front row. He was the first of the three New Zealanders to return home. In fact, all three Kiwis had been in dispute with the club about the provision of suitable employment, which came to a head before the crucial Challenge Cup semi-final against Wigan in 1930. Fortunately matters were resolved and a ‘deal’ was brokered by the Mayor (and big Saints supporter) Alderman Tom Boscow! The three stars were in fine form as mighty Wigan were eventually beaten in a replay at Mather Lane, Leigh by 22-10.
The St.Helens club has had a fine tradition of New Zealand players ranging from ‘Jum’ Turtill and Arthur Kelly in the early 1900s to Shane Cooper, George Mann and Kevin Iro in more recent times. Lou Hutt helped to carry on that tradition with his two team-mates in the late 1920s

Outside rugby Lou returned to his homeland and worked as a Traffic Inspector. He lived in Lincoln Road, Henderson at one point. Lou died in Auckland in May 1969 aged 64.
