Title: ... p112 Mal Meninga - memories of Big Mal in Lancashire Cup Final in 1984

 By Ron Campbell, Widnes, Referee for the Lancashire Cup Final in 1984

I was lucky enough to referee that Lancashire Cup Final in 1984 and I well remember Big Mal charging towards the Wigan line and Shaun Edwards going it to try and stop him. 

Remember Shaun himself was one of the greats of Rugby League and he could tacke with the best.  He went in too high on Mal and i had a great view of Mal swatting him aside and then diving over in the corner.

It is a sight I'll always remember.

Mal was a great player and a nice man too.

That final was played at Wigan because Warringtons ground the first choice was too small so Wigan won the toss up for venue and also choice of jerseys ! St Helen's had to play in a light blue with dark blue sleeves   .

A great game and played in great spirit by both teams made my job easy
