Zak Hardaker reveals a surprising fact and his greatest rugby moment

Zak Hardaker has been a Wigan Warriors player since 2019, making over 60 appearances for the club in those three seasons.

Prior to that, however, the 30-year-old enjoyed a devastatingly successful spell at Leeds Rhinos where he recalls his greatest moment on the rugby league field.

“The 2011 Grand Final that year (was his favourite moment),” Hardaker told¬†Wigan’s Youtube channel.

“I was meant to be on loan at Featherstone Rovers, but it got cut short as there were injuries at Leeds.

“So I got pulled back into the Leeds team which was an unbelievable squad.

“I played in the Grand Final in my 14th game and I scored a try on the hooter in front of the Leeds fans.”

At the age of 30, Hardaker’s hobbies now tend to focus around his family, having left the likes of golf behind.

“At the moment I’m just looking after my son, my missus might argue against it but I try my best!

“We’ve got another little one on the way so I will have my hands full.

“Two years ago I had golf, snooker and played the playstation but the playstation has dust on it now and the golf clubs haven’t been out in a year.

“It’s changed dramatically over the pas two years.”

Hardaker was also asked about a surprising fact that many people might not know about him and the result was, indeed, surprising.

“I used to play the violin at junior school and I was actually quite good,” Hardaker joked.

“I think I got lumbered with the violin because all the spots for guitar were filled and my mum couldn’t quite believe it when I turned up at home with it.

“So, every Saturday morning for two years I had a violin lesson from 9 until 11 in a hall full of 30 or 40 people learning to play and then my mum would pick me up and I’d get changed to play for Featherstone Lions.”
