FOUR of Wigan’s former stars will be immortalised at Wembley Stadium.

Playing legends Billy Boston, Martin Offiah, Eric Ashton and ex-coach Alex Murphy will line up next to Salford great Gus Risman in a group statue outside the famous ground.

There has been much debate over the last few months as to who would be represented after the RFL were asked to come up with a statue idea.

The five legends chosen were drawn up as a shortlist to be put up individually or as a group and those who made the deicison opted to immortilise all four.
