First-team player Joe Burgess and Warriors’ head of youth Mick Cassidy joined the group to show off their skills with a golf club as they negotiated the course’s obstacles.

Rugby legend Billy Boston, who is celebrating his 85th birthday, also attended.

Rugby Memories is organised by Wigan Warriors Community Foundation and has been shortlisted for the 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards. The scheme is asking for Wiganers’ support in a public vote, which lasts until midnight on August 21.
