Richie Mathers reveals his favourite Warrington Wolves moment when they ‘smashed’ Wigan Warriors

Richie Mathers is a name that will always be remembered in Super League.

After coming through the ranks at Leeds Rhinos to make 89 appearances, Mathers made the move to the Gold Coast Titans in 2007 before returning to the UK with Wigan Warriors.

There he spent two seasons and then two seasons at the Warrington Wolves, winning two Challenge Cups in a row for the Cheshire side.

A move to Castleford Tigers came about in 2011 and then subsequent transfers to Wakefield Trinity, London Broncos and then last but not least, the Bradford Bulls.

Mathers, who was also capped twice by England, retired at the end of 2016, but has been a vocal supporter of the sport in recent years.

When asked what his favourite Warrington moment was on Twitter, the former fullback replied: “Smashing them in CC semi final at Widnes to get to Wembley in 2009…. EASY best moment.”

The Wolves beat Wigan 39-26 in that fixture to reach the Challenge Cup Final for the first time since 1990 where they overcame Huddersfield Giants, 25-16.

The following year, 2010, Mathers and the Wire were successful again, this time thrashing Leeds Rhinos 30-6 to lift back-to-back Challenge Cups.
