Great Britain’s European Indoor 800m champion Jenny Meadows on Rugby League.
My dad was a massive fan and it was he who got me into Rugby League. My first ever memories of the sport was sat on my dad’s knee watching Wigan Warriors play at their old Central Park ground, but to be honest I was more interested in the sweets than the action on the pitch.
Over time, though, I slowly fell in love with the game and I was very lucky that my team, Wigan, were the dominant force in the English if not the world game. I loved watching Shaun Edwards play, a great reader of the game and playmaker and Andy Gregory – a powerful ‘chunky nugget’ who was a little general on the pitch.
