Former Warrior Joel Tomkins will make his England rugby union debut in Saturday’s match against Australia.
And he is joined in the starting XV by two other Wiganers - Chris Ashton and Owen Farrell.
Incredibly, all three went to the same school - Beech Hill’s St John Fisher High.
And it may be an even more special Saturday afternoon for the town, with Warriors’ Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Tomkins, Liam Farrell and Wigan-born Wolves prop Chris Hill all in the frame for the England RL World Cup match against Ireland.
Both games kick-off at 2.30pm.
