Ex-Warrington Wolves man and former Castleford Tigers forward set for boxing match

It’s being dubbed as the ‘Rugby League Rumble’ as former rugby league stars go head-to-head in a one-off boxing match for charity.

The Life For a Kid charity was set up in March 2009 with the aim of helping children under the age of 16 by offering funds and equipment to help them lead a better life and to also help children who require life saving or life changing operations.

Super League legends Adrian Morley and Ben Westwood have already agreed to put on their rugby boots once more as a Warrington All Stars takes on Rugby League All Stars for charity.

Their founder, Darren Hoggard, revealed his own aims for the charity on the charity’s website: ““To promote physical and mental health and relieve sickness amongst children, young people, their families and carers in particular but not exclusively through the provision of financial assistance, support, education and practical advice.”

Those two will join Chris Riley, Kevin Penny, Paul Wood and Kevin Brown – as well as a number of unnamed others – as they take to the field in aid of the Life For a Kid charity.

Whilst Brown has taken on a new punditry role with Premier Sports for Championship coverage on a Monday night, Westwood has created his own fast food truck, serving the Warrington town with a number of special delicacies.
