Ex-Wakefield Trinity star Danny Kirmond and ex-Warrington Wolves forward Ben Westwood now have bizarre new careers

Danny Kirmond and Ben Westwood have been there and done that in rugby league.

After two decades in the sport, both have now hung their boots up to lead rather different careers at present.

Westwood launched his Super Bennies Food Emporium back in November 2019, which is a fast food wagon serving everything from bacon and sausage butties at breakfast to burgers, chicken curry and jacket potatoes at lunchtime.

He began his career at local team Normanton Knights, before being scouted for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in 1999.

Joining the Warrington Wolves in 2002, Westwood stayed at the Cheshire club for 18 seasons, becoming the club’s longest serving player, before retiring in 2019.

Meanwhile, Kirmond was best known for being a long servant for Wakefield Trinity.

The second-rower spent nine seasons at Belle Vue between 2012 and 2020 – and was captain for the majority of those – but now coming towards the end of his career at the York City Knights, Kirmond is now a landlord.

The Sharlston Rugby Club is now home to Kirmond and his partner.
