Not quite the same theme. but I know a few rugby players from Leigh who never played for the club (for whatever reason) that don't support the Centurions, but might go to watch the odd game. Ian Sanderson and his brother Mark, Cliff Eccles, Mark Hudspith, and I don't know him but don't think Scott Naylor ever bothered when he wasn't playing/coaching.

Oh yeah, players will still support the side they always have in most cases but there is the odd case when that changes. More so in football with the likes of Carragher, Peter Reid, Ian Rush, but when players are treated a certain way by a club their loyalties can change.

Stu Littler was rejected by Wigan and treated like s*** by them as a kid went on to captain Salford and Leigh and still supports Wigan :thumb:

Lived opposite me in Billinge when he was a boy. His brother is still a Wigan season ticket holder.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy

Do you actually play the violin? Or are you looking for an honorary membership to the dark side. :D

I had a go once, couldn't get the hang of it. Don't understand the reason for your latter comment, my stepfather (don't like that word) is a Wigan fan, and he will confirm to you that in no way shape or form do I require a membership of any Wigan Warriors association.
