WIGAN will wear purple for the first time in their glorious history next season.

The Warriors launched the new away kit yesterday (Tuesday).

Mixing purple with navy blue – similar colours to those worn by Melbourne Storm – the eye-catching look marks a change from the traditional blue or black alternative strips.

Captain Sean O’Loughlin said: “The new colours offer a bit of a break from tradition.”

Replica shirts are now on sale from Warriors World in the Grand Arcade or via the club’s website, priced £47 adults, £35 juniors and £28 toddlers.
