Biography of Chris Flannery



HERITAGE NO : 1168
Flanno signed in June 2007 on a three and a half year contract from Sydney Roosters. He was a utility back rower, who could also play stand-off and centre. He had made 121 appearances for the Roosters and played for Queensland on 10 occasions.

Chris related that everyone he had spoken to had said that Saints were the most professional club over in England and obviously they have been at the top of their game for the past few years. Chris explained that he had decided if he was to come over to England then he would want to be at a strong club. He had always wanted to come over to the UK, but was not sure when.

Chris proved himself to be an excellent reader of the game with a keen sense of anticipation when gaps appeared in the defences of opposition. Disappointment for Chris and the Saints came in bucketfuls at the end of the 2007 season as the team lost to Leeds in the Grand Final. Within a year Flanno was collecting a winners medal at Wembley as the Saints ran out 28 points to 16 winners in the Challenge Cup Final against Hull. That season also saw Chris notching up 10 tries as he regularly contributed to the Saints machine try haul. His collection in his time at the Saints included braces against London Skolars and Gateshead Thunder in Challenge Cup ties.

The 2009 season proved to be a roller coaster season for the Saints. The ride however, ultimately ended in disappointment as the Saints trophy cabinet was laid bare for the first time since the 2003 campaign. Some sparkling performances were punctuated with below par matches as the club shaped a new team for the future and youth was given its head.

The 2010 season finished with an empty trophy cabinet at the Saints but the side creditably made it to the Challenge Cup Semi Final and a fifth successive Grand Final.

The 2011 season was a real roller coaster for all the team. Not only had the club got to contend with playing all their home matches at Widnes, following the sale of Knowsley Road, but a series of injuries threatened to derail the quest for silverware.

Nevertheless the players responded magnificently by reaching an eleventh consecutive Challenge Cup Final and a record breaking sixth successive Grand Final. However, a sour taste of disappointment featured as the Saints lost to Wigan in the Challenge Cup and Leeds came back strongly in the last twenty minutes of the Grand Final to dampen the spirits. Chris had to miss out on the road to Old Trafford through injury. His seven tries in the campaign helped the team maintain a successful run towards the end of the season. The 2011 season also saw Chris notch up 100 appearances for the Saints.

His last season saw the Saints fail to make a Final for the first time since 2005. Consequently Chris failed to complete the Grand Final winning double following his Aussie Grand Final success with the Roosters. At the end of the campaign Chris retired to his homeland. He is currently CEO of Sunshine Coast Falcons RLFC in Queensland.
