  1. The Wigan coat of arms is interesting. Wigan FC used the Borough's one , 'Ancient and Loyal' which came in I think in 1928 Wigan Boroughs original crest was the wiggin tree, used by the Latics in the 70s. Wigan changed to 'Progress With Unity' in 1974, which was the Wigan Met crest, but it included Leigh in that, so the pie eaters dropped it later and reverted to the ancient and loyal one again.

  4. It was part of the deal Super League did with $ky They insisted on traditional names being junked, Hull KR would have been called Robins rather than Rovers. The two other leagues didn't have to, but to try and cash in some did, to no effect whatsoever
