As the clubs record try scorer show your appreciation for the main man in this Heritage Billy Boston Hall of Fame Wigan Rugby League Shirt. Billy Boston started his career in rugby union but decided to switch codes at 19 when he joined Wigan playing rugby league in 1953. Whilst with the Cherry and Whites he scored 478 tries in 488 appearances over a 15 year period. Regarded as one of the sport’s greatest ever players, Boston scored a total of 571 tries in his career, making him the second-highest try scorer in rugby league history. He is an original inductee of the British Rugby League Hall of Fame, Welsh Sports Hall of Fame and Wigan Warriors Hall of Fame, and was awarded an MBE in 1986. This vintage shirt is inspired by Boston and the Wigan team of 1965 who defeated Hunslet 20-16 in the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley. It is made from 100% cotton and features a detailed appliqué Crest. Other features include herringbone finish on the vents and tape on the neck opening.
