Leigh Sports Village
It looks as though it is square.
Will it be Wigan RFC's home ground?
Wigan playing in Leigh?
Erm... I've just rung Satan and there's no sign of any snow down there yet :)
It's so much nicer than the JJB - can the warriors move there - lay on buses from the station or outside the JJB :)
it wouldnt surprise me if both local clubs ended up sharing this ground in the future.
Nice arena, Leigh hate wigan could be some fun there, does anyone know the capacity.
