The finalists from the Warriors Tag Festival have been selected to compete in a curtain raiser before St Helens go to battle against the Brisbane Broncos. The fixture will be hotly contested by Eatock and Daisy Hill Primary schools who met just last week in the Warriors Tag Festival at Westhoughton high school.
The evening should prove to be a fantastic finale to the programme which has been supported by Powerade and has resulted in over 500 young people receiving Rugby League coaching in their local school. The programme has unearthed some tremendous talent and has resulted in the sport of Rugby League being firmly placed on the map in the area of Bolton.
Community Development Manger, John Winder said “This is a fantastic opportunity for the two schools from Westhoughton to showcase their new found skills and love for the game. Furthermore it will provide an outstanding introduction to one of the biggest events on the Rugby League calendar”.
“The programme has been an outstanding success, and thanks to the support of Powerade and the work of the Wigan Warriors, Westhoughton High school in the shape of Carol Smith and Westhoughton Lions ARLFC the future for the sport of Rugby League in Bolton is looking very bright indeed.”
