The full back found the mark 813 times for Wigan during his 248 games. His kicking prowess made him a prime target for Castleford in the 1970 Challenge Cup final Botica the boot became a kicking revelation after arriving at Wigan in 1990.
He struck 827 two-pointers and 13 drop goals on his way to 18 winners medals. Wigans top Super League goal-kicker, Pat Richards scored 869 goals and four drop goals, including this wonder strike against St Helens, between 2006 and 2013. One of only two people to kick more than 1,000 goals for the club, Andy Farrell has 1,336 goals and 19 drop goals on his Wigan record.
