- Relive some of Kennys greatest moments and Warriors Grand Final memories
Wigan Warriors and The Riversiders to host a presitgous evening with Brett Kenny on Friday 9th October at the DW Stadium, Wigan.
Wigan Warriors are today delighted to announce ‘An Evening with Brett Kenny’ as he returns to the United Kingdom for his first public tour since he lit up English Rugby League during the mid-eighties.
Wigan have teamed up with The Riversiders - Wigan Warriors’ supporters club – to deliver a unique evening with one of the game’s greatest ever players.
Doors open at 7pm on Friday 9th October, the eve of the Grand Final, for an evening of drinks, highlights and stories, as well as an interactive question and answer session with fans.
Brett originally arrived in Wigan in 1984 and made his debut in the 22-8 win against Warrington. In the next 4 months Kenny went on to become an instant legend the club, scoring 19 tries.
His finest moment came at Wembley as he led Wigan to their first Rugby League Challenge Cup victory in 20 years. Kenny became the first Australian to be awarded the Lance Todd Trophy for his Man-of-the-Match performance in the 1985 Challenge Cup final during the 1984–85 season, commonly regarded as the greatest final in Challenge Cup history. His famous solo try scored when Hull had full cover defence across the field was memorable but so too was his marshalling of the Wigan defence and his own tackle count contribution. In his one season Kenny became a firm favourite at Central Park and found fans among many neutral supporters.
‘An Evening with Brett Kenny’ will be held at the DW Stadium on the evening before the Super League Grand Final. It will be hosted by Graham Lovett and will also involve looking backs on both 2010 and 2013 Grand Final victories.
Tickets are £6 with proceeds going to both the Brett Kenny Foundation and the Riversiders Supporters Club.
