Workington Town legend Gus Risman will be immortalised in a statue outside Wembley Stadium.
Have your say
A well deserved reward for a great player, I remember that season very well, we beat the mighty Wigan three times that season, rthose were the good days for Workington and Rugby, give it to Gus could be heard all over the town in those days. posted by Alex Craig.
So appropriate that it should come 60 years after his and Town's finest 80 minutes.
Fantastic news, and thoroughly deserved for a true RL legend. surprised someone like Ellery Hanley wasnt chosen though, but I suppose many others could also have a good shout to be included.
