Chris Hill - St Helens

St Helens



As a Saints supporter I used to hate going to
Castleford, as we never won in the 80's due to mainly Kevin Ward and the
Beardmores - Classy Cas was exactly what Castleford were when the Big Man
got them going....when he signed for St.Helens he was supposedly 'over
the hill' at 33yrs old - he was a breath of fresh air and head and
shoulders above anything we had and probably even up to modern day standards
no-one lives up to Kevin. A lot of games he shouldn't have played in but
ended up taking the field at the last minute and playing a blinder. For
any modern day players who have dodgy temperaments, its worth watching
how Kevin Ward handled himself around the park - he got some stick but
never retaliated once. He would give them a glare and when they next
had the ball they would be fairly crippled in their next tackle....they
wouldn't try anything again !!!

He had an aura about him when he signed for Saints, he was a man who
all players looked up to - he had no airs or graces, just one of the
lads, but he would die for his fellow team-mate and set up the easiest of
tries on a plate....and god he was fit for such a big man, he could run
all day. I've no doubt he would have been an even bigger superstar in
the modern game with interchanges because rarely did he come off the
field - he was dangerous for the full 80 minutes every week !!!
