17th March 2007, Hull FC 24 Saints 12.
Having been runners up to Saints in the league and Grand Final the previous season, Hull made a number of signing but had made a poor start to the season on the field and had an ongoing saga with Paul Cooke. Ill discipline from Saints gave Hull a plethora of penalties and one of those new signings, Danny Tickle, took full advantage, finishing with six goals. Saints trailed 10-6 at half time after Paul Wellens had crossed for a try. In the second half James Graham added another and Steve Tryer added his second conversion. In the final minutes Saints performance was summed up when Leon Pryce was sin-binned.
23rd March 2007, Saints 42 Hull KR 16.
After Rovers opened the scoring after 10 minutes, tries by Francis Meli, James Graham and Maurie Fa’Asavalu gave Saints a 16-4 half time lead. Paul Sculthorpe continued his comeback, from the bench coming on after half an hour and started the move that led to Leon Pryce increasing Saints lead early in the second half. Sculthorpe crossed himself before setting up Matt Gidley for a try. Lee Gilmour then went over before Meli crossed for his second try.

17th March 2002, Halifax 20 Saints 26 (Challenge Cup 6th Round).
Saints were drawn away for the third consecutive time in the cup with a trip to the Shay for a televised tie. First half tries by Martin Gleeson, Darren Albert and Sean Long who added 5 goals gave Saints a 22-12 half time lead. In the second half, the Blue Sox hit back, and it took a late try form Gleeson to secure Saints passage to the semi final.
22nd March 2002, Saints 33 Hull 14.
Sean Long opened the scoring with a try then added a penalty to become only the third player to score 1,000 Super League points. Hull drew level with an interception try, but tries by Keiron Cunningham and Darren Albert put Saints 16-6 up at half time. Tommy Martyn atoned for his earlier error by crossing for a try and when Paul Wellens added a fifth it looked like Saints would run away with the game. To their credit Hull came back with two tries before Martyn added a penalty and dropped goal.

Karle Hammond continued his good form and scored two tries, with others coming from Anthony Sullivan, Alan Hunte and Danny Arnold.

Cooper added his second try and Alan Hunte added a fifth, all converted by Loughlin. For Halifax former, Saints players John Fieldhouse, twice, and Mark Bailey scored tries.

Saints swept into a 14-2 half time lead with tries by Kevin McCormack, Chris Arkwright and Andy Platt and a conversion by Paul Loughlin. Leigh hit back to close the gap to six points and continued to pose problems for Saints. It was left to Barrie Ledger to save Saints, when he raced back to tackle John Henderson as he broke clear down the centre of the field and looked likely to score.
22nd March 1987, Warrington 17 Saints 17.

26th March 1977, Leeds 7 Saints 2. (Challenge Cup Semi Final at Wigan)
Saints hopes of a return to Wembley ended in disappointment in heavy rain at Central Park. Already missing George Nicholls, they lost Dave Chisnall with a head injury in the first half. Saints looked to have gone ahead when Geoff Pimblett caught a Harry Pinner “up and under” to touchdown by the side of the post, but referee, Fred Lindop, ruled it out for offside. Leeds dropped a goal to open the scoring, before a Pimblett penalty put Saints in front. Leeds then added a penalty to lead 3-2 at half time. Saints had most of the territorial advantage in the second half before Leeds broke away to score the only try of the game. A late dropped goal completed the scoring.

After a comfortable mid week win over Hull KR, Saints had to withstand a second half revival from an ever improving Dewsbury who were looking to make the play offs for the second consecutive season. Saints led 14-2 at the break after tries by Jeff Heaton and John Wills. Kel Coslett converted both and added two penalties. Saints only points in the second half came from a Coslett goal, as Dewsbury, led by Mick Stephenson and Nigel Stephenson staged a comeback and almost wrecked Saints unbeaten home league record.
