What do you mean "even though he played for Wigan"? :roll:

I thought you might see that one :lol: :lol: :lol:

Talking Rugby League players when they opened a Sports centre at a local school (Barlby) a few years back they had numerous local sports put on a exhibition and myself and another player were selected to do the Table Tennis.
The two sporting celebs that came along to do the official opening were Ellery Hanley and Howard Wilkinson.
We got introduced to them as they were walked around the various sports but they stopped with us and wanted a game.
I ended up playing doubles with Ellery against Howard and my mate.

Completely ‘off piste’, but Ellery Hanley was a client of mine many years ago :D.
