Premiership winners quiz – 1988-1990

The current week has marked the anniversary of Widnes winning three Premiership Finals in a row, between 1988 and 1990.

This remarkable run of dominance in the top flight began when Doug Laughton led the club to a 38-14 victory over St Helens at Old Trafford, winning the 1987/88 title.

The following season Widnes lifted the trophy again, defeating Hull FC 18-10 before completing a hat-trick of triumphs in the 1989/90 season with a 28-6 victory over Bradford Northern.

Doug Laughton coached all three teams to victory in those seasons, however only 11 players played in all three finals during that period of dominance.

For today’s quiz, we’re giving you five minutes to name all 11 players who played in those finals, either in the starting 13 or as one of two substitutes.

To help you out, we have given you the positions they played in those finals, also indicating the players who featured as a substitute.
