Wigan chairman Ian Lenagan has revealed ambitious plans for international expansion by suggesting to a New Zealand radio station – Trackside Radio - he wants to see his Warriors side take on New Zealand Warriors in London.

Following the announcement that Wigan will play South Sydney in Australia in 2018, it appears Lenagan is open to further games against NRL opponents.

Lenagan said “We, for example, have a very close relationship with New Zealand Warriors because there’s lots of Kiwis who have played for Wigan.

“We would love New Zealand Warriors to come over to the UK and play against Wigan, for example. That would be one of the most attractive games we could do and we’d like to play that in London as an example. We hope that will start the ball rolling and people will realise the massive commercial opportunity worldwide of club international rugby league.”
