Your first Wigan game?

My first game was the 2015 grand final I moved away from Liverpool when I was young and moved back the month before the grand final for university so this was the perfect opportunity to see the boys. I’ve watched games on telly for years as I’ve been a Wigan fan all my life! The game was a heartbreakimg one but the feeling when Burgess crossed the line for the first try of the game will be something I’ll never forget and it made me realise how much I wanted this week in week out and a few months later I purchased my first season ticket for the 2016 season

What is your most memorable moment being a Wigan fan?

Seeing us lift the Grand Final and World Club Series in the space of 4 months just proving why we are the best rugby team the world has ever seen

Who is your favourite all time Wigan player?

Pat Richards I mean he wasn’t called Super Pat for nothing was he

Who is your favourite Wigan player?

George Williams he just oozes class and I met him on the promotional video for the 2016 World Club series promo video and he’s so down to earth like all the lads are and I love them all with every bit of my heart but George just sticks out for me

Name one player that you would love to see play for Wigan – past or present

I’m going to say a present player and go for Rob Burrow because when the chips are down he always has something up his sleeve I know Leeds haven’t been great the last 12/14 months but he’s a special player

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

Rob Burrow simply because he can do things many players can’t and for his size he’s one hell of a tackler

What is your favourite away ground?

I’d give that the Saints they have a great stadium and obviously the atmosphere in our away end is always top draw which always helps the choice

Your top 8 prediction for this year?

(In no particular order) Wigan, Castleford, Saints, Warrington, Leeds, Catalan, Hull and Salford

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

The salary cap for sure

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

George Williams
