The Red Devils have not won an away game against Saints since 1980.

Pink Floyd topped the charts with Another Brick in the Wall, Beatle John Lennon was shot dead and Hull KR beat neighboursHull FC 10-5 to win the RL Challenge Cup Final for the first and only time.

The year? It’s 1980 and the last occasion Salford, who face Betfred Super League champions St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday night, last won an away game against their rivals from the other end of the East Lancashire Road.
