HE'S still got it!

Warrington Wolves legend and assistant coach Lee Briers, 40, lit up a game in his home town of St Helens at the weekend.

He featured in a St Helens Legends side that took on a Rest of the World Legends team made up from rugby union players from all around the globe.

The game was played to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the St Helens Rugby Union Club (now Liverpool St Helens).

And as an added bonus it raised more than £1,200 for St Helens Autism Support.

Although all retired from playing rugby league the likes of Briers, Wolves head of performance Ade Gardner, ex-Wire centre Martin Gleeson, Paul Wellens, Sean Long and Tommy Martyn, who are all still involved in coaching in the 13-man code, showed they still have plenty of plays up their sleeves.

But none more so than Briers, who produced a real box of tricks as the St Helens team triumphed by 46-28.

In what was a proper competitive contact match, the former Saints, Warrington and Wales half back Briers - who retired from league with a neck injury in 2013 - rolled back the years with his all round performance helping to deliver the victory.

And The Wire's all-time record points scorer was voted man of the match after bagging a hat-trick of tries, booting seven goals and being the all-round midfield general with his prompting, probing and passing game.

No wonder he had a smile on his face.

It was less a happy afternoon for Saints assistant coach Long, who was led from the field in no little agony in the first half after popping out his shoulder.

Numerous attempts were made to remedy the problem at the ground - but to no avail and he was led away by his concerned boss Justin Holbrook, who provided coaching tips and a water-boy service on the day.

The injury was fixed on Saturday night.
