FORMER Wigan Warriors player Martin Offiah is to be the guest of honour at a university rugby match.

He will be the 2015 Pcubed Rugby League Varsity Match Guest of Honour, at the Battle of the Blues of Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

Offiah was to be the 2016 Guest of Honour but jumped ahead as he replaced Shaun Edwards who has had to focus on Six Nations commitments. Martin said: “I’m very happy to be a part of the Varsity Match this year. I know how important it is for rugby league to be played at Oxbridge and this is one of the biggest Varsity events in the calendar. I have been looking forward to it since I was first asked to get involved and to do it sooner is terrific.”
