all time favourite teams

Post by the pieman » Wed Apr 15, 2020 4:29 pm

i know people are probably bored with isolation so i have been thinking about different things to get my mind going.

Here are a couple of RL related ones for you to get stuck into :)

1. all time favourite Wigan team (of wiganers who played for Wigan)
2. all time favourite Wigan team (anyone that has played for Wigan)
3. all time favourite team of others (SL based players who you would like to have seen in a Wigan shirt)
4. all time favourite team of others (Oz, Nz etc that you would like to have seen in a Wigan shirt)

Good effort, although I'd probably swap Paul Prescott (not born in Wigan) for Shaun Wane.

i had thought about Shaun Wane and hadnt realised Paul was from Stratford Upon Avon. That's where i found it challenging as there are so many players who have been at the club from such an early age, you think they are Wiganers :)
