WIGAN winger Pat Richards admits he would never have envisaged making 200 appearances for Wigan when he arrived at the club back in 2006.

The Aussie will chalk-up the double ton in tonight’s home match against Catalans.

Wigan are theming the night as ‘Paddy’s Day’ to salute the 31-year-old, who landed on these shores with the intention of playing just two years at the Warriors. He said: I’ve been here a long time – my kids speak with Wigan accents! When I came, I thought I’d do two years like a lot of Aussies, but the fact I’ve stayed shows how much I like the place.

“I’ve no regrets at all about not going back to the NRL. I love the club and it’s great to be a part of the team.”
