Wigan Warriors can confirm a pre-season home fixture against Betfred Super League rivals Leeds Rhinos will take place at the DW Stadium on Sunday 19th January 2020 with an 3pm kick-off. The game will celebrate as a Testimonial Fixture for vice-captain Liam Farrell who in 2020 will have been at the Club for ten years.
Speaking about the game, Liam said: “In terms of having Leeds as the opposition I couldn’t think of a better opposition to be playing against.
“I’m over the moon. I’ve had so many games in my career against Leeds - some of which have been the best I’ve played in. I’ve got some great memories against them and I’m very grateful they can come and play in my Testimonial match at the DW. To play it there is unbelievably special to me. It’s pretty surreal.
“The last Testimonial at the DW was Lockers’ over eight years ago. Hopefully a lot of our fans will be eager to get down and watch us play - it should be a great day for everyone.”
Head Coach, Adrian Lam, added: “Liam richly deserves his Testimonial and this game against Leeds Rhinos will hopefully start the year in style for him. Liam has been a magnificent servant to the Wigan Club and the fixture will be a useful test of where we are in our pre-season preparations.”
Full details about admission prices for the game will be announced in due course.
