Has anybody heard the updated version of the old Wigan rugby song?

It's been released by the club as a Wembley charity song with proceeds split between Wigan Youth Zone and Joining Jack. It is available for preorder now and will be officially launched at next week's game.

Apparently it only takes about 8000 downloads to make the top 40 so lets get behind it and get the club on national radio! I preordered mine today.

"Old Wigan song" never thought of it being old but I guess it is 30yr old so yeah. I've still got the original on vinyl, far better than any download, well it is once I can get the two pence to balance on the stylus arm :)

That's what I thought, 30yrs sounds like ages ago yet I can still remember singing it on the popular side bang on half way :) Yep and I did join in last night , albeit using the "old words" :D

Live performance of the Wigan Warriors Anthem at half time tomorrow. Come let's get behind it, get it downloaded and into the charts! 8000 downloads is all it will take to make the top 40 and that seems achievable if we support it!

You would think that for the cost and the coverage the club would get they would buy the downloads themselves.

This song is number 72 in the iTunes Charts already! Let's get it into the top 40, it'll be great for the charities, the club and the town if it ends up on national radio.
