Wigan's World Cup Stars Double Wembley Chance

Wigan's World Cup Stars Double Wembley Chance

Following their handsome victory over London Broncos on Saturday, the Warriors will march on Wembley once more next month.

The Tetley's Challenge Cup Final will pit 1985 combatants Wigan and Hull FC against each other once more and an epic encounter is expected.

And another unbelievable afternoon of entertainment under the arch is guaranteed this autumn, when Wembley Stadium hosts The Big Hit double header of Rugby League World Cup 2013 semi-finals on November 23.

The matches will pit the world's top four Rugby League nations against one another on one unforgettable day of family entertainment under the famous arch.

At stake is a place in the showpiece final at Old Trafford on November 30, where the curtain will fall on the global sporting event of 2013, and a world champion will be crowned.

New Zealand, Australia and England are expected by many to fill three of the four spots at Wembley, though there will be no shortage of contenders for that final place.
"Somewhere down the line I believe we will be challenging the very best teams in the world, and I see no reason why this can't be at RLWC2013," said Samoa's Frank Winterstein.

"We'd love a crack at a semi-final. You're only 80 minutes away from the biggest stage of them all, the chance to compete for that trophy at Old Trafford"
"It'd be massive to play at Wembley. It's the national stadium, the home of the Tetley's Challenge Cup Final, and now it's the home of The Big Hit, which will be an unbelievable event."

The DW Stadium will also host one Quarter-Final on November 16, which could see hometown heroes Sam Tomkins, Josh Charnley, Sean O'Loughlin and Liam Farrell, among others, trot out for England.
