PROFESSIONAL rugby league returned to Blackpool after a twelve years absence since the days of the Gladiators playing in the North West seaside town. But in a classic game of two halves St Helens, who fielded a combination of their under 18 and 21 squads plus Samoans Gray Viane and Dom Feaunati threatened to ruin the party as they led 16-4 at the interval. In the second half Blackpool scored sixteen unanswered points with the match winning try coming a minute from time which left the Saints no time to recover.
