Brett Kenny was signed by Wigan in 1984 from Parramatta and although he played in 25 games during his short stay at the club, he is remembered as one of the best ever Australian signings. He was only 24 years old when he signed but signed off his short stay by winning the Lance Todd Trophy at Wembley in the 1985 Challenge Cup final against Hull with 99,801 people in attendance. He became the first ever Australian to win the award. Brett had become a first grade player in Australia by the time he was 19, and played in three Sydney Premiership Finals and State of Origin fixtures. He arrived at Wigan in December 1984 and made an immediate impact, helping Wigan to beat local rivals Warrington. His ability to find his way through the narrowest of openings became a terrace favourite. Brett returned home to Australia and in 1986 was awarded the adidas Golden Boot as the finest player in the world. He played 17 times for Australia between 1982 and 1987 touring the UK twice in 1982 and 1986.
