Your first Wigan game?

My first game was in 1983 when my Dad was stuck with nothing to do with me and my brother so my Dad took us to Central Park to watch Wigan v Featherstone Rovers. Don’t really remember much about it. We did win though


What is your most memorable moment being a Wigan fan?


Probably beating Hull at Wembley in 1985. Unbelievable match. My first time watching Wigan at Wembley. I’d been the year before when we lost to Widnes and I was heartbroken. Gilly’s try will never leave me.


Who is your favourite all time Wigan player?

Henderson Gill. Always played with a smile on his face.

Which opposition player do you fear the most when they play Wigan? 


What is your favourite away ground and why? 

Mend-a-Hose Jungle. Has a real old world charm that’s totally unique. They do a stinking buffet for the media as well.

Wigan, Castleford, Warrington, Hull, Saints, Salford, Leeds and Leigh


If you could change one thing about Rugby League, what would it be? 

Thursday night rugby


Who do you think will win the Steve Prescott Man of Steel Award this year? 

That’s hard to say at this point but I’d love to see Sam Powell win it.


Thanks to Joe for his answers
