I remember from primary school that we were taught that the town was set up by the Vikings , a warrior called Weork and it was Weorkstown , so there's a link , but these things are all done for marketing . No idea. Could certainly get some good merchandise of that !

Why didn't Wigan have to drop warriors to stop clashing with the mighty ones ? And anyway what about Featherstone Rovers and Hull Kingston Rovers ... Batley Bulldogs and Canterbury Bulldogs . They get on fine them two . Ripped that argument up ...

Please god no

We are Workington TOWN, does 68 years of Workington TOWN mean nothing?

Rugby League must be a great game to survive the fools at the RFL who run it.
