Wigan Rugby

Can any one remember Wigan Rugby signing a ONE armed player in the 70's.
A work mate mentioned it the other day, I do seem to recall a one armed or one handed player but am not sure as I was only kid at the time.
thanx to you lot, cheers

a rugby player with one arm(could be a fugitive),could be pulling your one legbut i have been watching the football and rugby for over 35yrs and i cant remember the rugby signing a disabled player(but i could be proven wrong.

He never played for Wigan.
Kerry Gibson, another Australian, had short stints with Runcorn and Springfield Borough in 1987-88 despite having only one arm.
