Dan Sarginson announces retirement

Wigan Warriors would like to extend best wishes to former player, Dan Sarginson, who has made the decision to retire from Rugby League at the age of 29.

Sarginson signed for the Warriors in October 2013 and played for three seasons between the years of 2014 and 2016. In his 5-years with the Club, across two stints, he made 127 appearances and scored 36 tries in all competitions.

In his first stint at the Club the Centre played in two Super League Grand Final’s, playing a pivotal role in the 2016 victory over Warrington Wolves to become a Super League Champion for the first time.

Heritage number 1055, Sarginson left the Warriors to spend a year in Australia with the Gold Coast Titans in 2017 before returning to the Club for a further two seasons. In 2018, Sarginson became a Grand Final winner with the Warriors for a second time as Wigan again beat Warrington Wolves.

Chief Executive, Kris Radlinski, said: “Dan should be incredibly proud of the Rugby League career that he has had. His 2016 Grand Final performance was one of the finest individual performances that I have seen where he carried the ball over 30 times and laid on a try for Josh Charnley.

“During his time at Wigan, he suffered the devastating loss of his little brother and the mental strength he showed to get through the heartbreaking situation was incredible. We have invited Dan to our game against Salford Red Devils next week and I will be asking him to carry out the match ball before the game – I urge all fans to give him the welcome back to the DW Stadium that he deserves.”
