Hi

Hope you can help. I attended my first rugby league game on new years day 80 or 81.had spent new years eve with a friend I met at uni who came from Padgate. I came from Bristol so my only access to league had been challenge Cup and floodlit trophy on BBC. I'd always enjoyed it but played Union. Now having lived in Huddersfield for 30 years I'm a long term giants season ticket holder but can't recall exactly who wire played. I thought it was Barrow but then for many years I was convinced des Drummond played but he couldn't have. I do think there was a black winger who scored a hateful but could be wrong. Can anyone help cos Google can't

Thanks for your time. I still have a soft spot for you lot except when you play us cos you usually do us over

If only you went a week earlier Wire v Pies. Boxing Day.
You’d have never forgotten that game. As a matter of fact, I was thinking about it today.
once a wire always a wire

Always played Leigh on Boxing Day. Wigan was New Year's Day.
The black wingers would be Henderson Gill of Wigan or Phil Ford of Warrington.

Wasn't Green Vigo (the one who caused Paul Bishop to swallow his tongue) a Wigan player at that time?
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

Pretty sure you're correct Lefty. Weren't Wigan in Division 2 that season though resulting in us playing Oldham on 1st Jan? Tony Waller and Roger O'Mahony were sent off for repeatedly fighting I think.

OP references New Years Day 1980, 1981, and 1982 above.

NYD 1980, no match
NYD 1981, Oldham
NYD 1982, Wigan

Wigan relegated at end of 1979/80 season. :D
