Andy Gregory to be inducted into Rugby League Hall of Fame
Wigan legend starred in most successful Wigan team ever
- Will be inducted alongside Derek Turner and Johnny Whiteley MBE
Wigan legend Andy Gregory is to be inducted into the Rugby League Hall of Fame next month
The scrum-half will be honoured at a dinner held in Leeds on 7th November at Elland Road. The very prestigious Hall of Fame was established back in 1988 and also includes Wigan greats Shaun Edwards, Eric Ashton, Billy Boston, Ellery Hanley, Jim Sullivan, Martin Offiah and Mick Sullivan.
Two other Rugby League greats will join Gregory in being inducted on the evening, Wakefield legend Derek Turner and Hull’s Johnny Whiteley MBE.
Gregory had a glittering 15-year career in Rugby League, becoming the first player to win the Lance Todd Trophy twice and the Challenge Cup five times.
Growing up a Wiganer and playing for St Pats, Gregory’s career would lead him to Widnes and Warrington before finally appearing for his hometown club in 1986, signing for a reported £130,000. He then went on to play over 180 times for the Cherry & White, performing in the most successful Wigan team ever.
His star also shone on the international stage. Arguably his best performance came for Great Britain in the third test of the 1988 tour, when the Lions stunned the Australians in Sydney.
