Wigan to start up Man of the Match

Wigan Warriors are to begin a Players Player of the Match Award after every home Tetley's Super League game at the JJB Stadium, starting this Friday against Halifax RLFC.

The Players will choose which team mate has had the biggest influence on the game and each week the player nominated along with Coach Stuart Raper will make a presentation in the South Stand Bar about fifteen to twenty minutes after the final hooter.

The player will receive a small momento and will address the fans along with the Coach after the game.

The Bar is open to all Season Ticket holders.

Coach Stuart Raper said,

"It is a great chance for the fans to here my thoughts and the Player of the match. We hope this award will prove popular with our loyal supporters."
