My Set of Six: with Warrington legend Lee Briers featuring Phil Veivers & proving doubters wrong

Drew Darbyshire

Warrington legend Lee Briers is our latest guest on My Set of Six.

We’re asking you, the fans, plus players, coaches and other rugby league personalities to give us their answers to our set of six questions.

Favourite away ground?

DW Stadium, Wigan. Some of our Friday night battles in a packed stadium were sensational.

Favourite player?

Phil Veivers. He was sensational at Saints, he was the best high ball catcher I’ve seen.

Favourite memory?

Proving everyone wrong that thought I was too small to be a professional rugby league player.

Worst memory? 

Not winning a Grand Final as a player. Let’s see if my coaching career can make up for that!

Best match you’ve seen?

I’ve watched so many that it’s hard to pick! I’ll go for Great Britain’s test against Australia at Wembley in 1994.

Your wish for the future of rugby league?

I wish that we would scrap scholarships and signing players at 14 years of age. Bring back town team rugby at Under-11s, 13s and 15s – this would stop us losing players when they don’t get a scholarship and it will allow kids to be kids. They’d be able to just play the game without the pressure of signing professional contracts.
