HE may not be at Wigan next year, but full-back Sam Tomkins was giving knowledgeable Warriors fans the chance to secure their seats at the DW Stadium for a whole season.

The 24-year-old was at the launch of the new Heinz BIG Soup Fiery Chicken and Chorizo flavour, which was chosen by the public in the Heinz BIG Flavours – You Decide! campaign, at Morrisons in Wigan town centre.

The new BIG Soup flavour is now available in supermarkets nationwide and Tomkins, who is an ambassador for the products, was giving the first purchasers a chance to win season tickets for the 2014 Super League season.

Ahead of this weekend’s Grand Final, the England star was quizzing fans on a number of questions to do with rugby league.

If the person answered correctly in less than 30 seconds, they won a pair of season tickets.

The questions Tomkins asked were:

* Who won the Challenge Cup?

* Who is the 2013 man of Steel?

* When did Wigan last win the Super League trophy?

* Who did Wigan play in the first game of this season?

* At how many different stadia has the Grand Final been held?

After a number of entrants, two people ended up winning the season tickets.

Meanwhile, Wigan Warriors have confirmed that even if they do win the Grand Final on Saturday, there will be no home-coming parade.

This is due to Wigan Athletic’s playing on Sunday and then the rugby players leaving for World Cup duties on Monday.
