My Set of Six: with Wigan prop Ollie Partington featuring Sean O’Loughlin & Headingley

Drew Darbyshire

In our new feature, 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.

Wigan prop Ollie Partington is our latest guest on My Set of Six…

Favourite away ground?

Headingley, Leeds. The atmosphere there is unreal, especially since it has been done up.

Favourite player?

Sean O’Loughlin. Having grown up watching Wigan, it has got to be Lockers for obvious reasons. He’s a world class player who has done it all.

Favourite memory?

Making my debut for Wigan. We beat Castleford in the Super 8s as it was then and it was just a class feeling to make my first-team debut.

Worst memory?

Losing to Salford in the semi-finals of the play-offs last year – but that game stands us in good stead for the future.

Best match you’ve seen?

The Good Friday derby in 2011 when Faz (Liam Farrell) went over to win it at the end. I was there that day watching it as a fan, the sun was shining and we beat Saints. It was a good day!

Your wish for the future of rugby league? 

My wish would be for the game to get back on its feet once we get going again – and for the game to grow and get more youngsters playing the game.
