Warrington Wolves legend Ben Westwood making his new career a success

Having played over two decades of rugby league, it would only be fair for Warrington Wolves owner Ben Westwood to hang up his feet.

However, Westwood is still competing – just in the food variety rather than on the rugby league field.

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.

The second-rower registered 441 appearances, scored 128 tries and landed 83 goals in his time at Warrington, ending his career as a Challenge Cup Winner in 2019, having previously also won the title in 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Westwood also represented England on 27 occasions.

And, most recently, Westwood served 30 eggs to Tom Stoltman – a competitor in the World’s Strongest Man event.

Stoltman – who also competed alongside brother Luke – became the first Scotsman to ever win the prestigious competition.

Maybe it was Westwood’s eggs that did the trick…

Warrington, meanwhile, are under a new era at the Halliwell Jones Stadium as head coach Daryl Powell takes the reins for his first season in charge.

The Wolves have already won two games from two, so watch this space!
