Ex-Wigan Warriors prop Tony Clubb finds shock coaching role

Tony Clubb has found a career after playing – though it might come as a surprise as to which rugby league side he has joined to coach.

Local amateur side in Wigan, Ince Rose Bridge, announced the capture of former Wigan Warriors prop Clubb as their newest member of the open age coaching team via Twitter.

Clubb joined Wigan back in 2014 after making almost 150 appearances for the London Broncos.

The 34-year-old went on to make 165 appearances for the Warriors, winning three major trophies, including the World Club Challenge, the Super League Grand Final and the League Leaders’ Shield.

On his decision to retire, Clubb said: “I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I can honestly say with my hand on my heart I’ve had the best time. I’ve travelled the world, won many things and played with some outstanding people. It’s been an absolute pleasure and I’m sad it’s come to end.

“I’ve had a good stint. To be a part of Grand Final experiences, to walking out at Old Trafford and to win it 2018 was special. It’s memorable. The World Club Challenge in 2017 probably meant more – to do it at the DW in front of our fans and against the Aussies. It was great. The League Leaders last year was special too. I’m happy with what I’ve achieved.
