Wigan Warriors are a Club with the proudest tradition in the sport of Rugby League. Wigan has been passionately represented by some of the most talented players ever to grace the sport of Rugby League, and in turn has one of the most glorious histories of any sports club the world over picking up trophies and accolades in most decades since the birth of Rugby League in 1895.
