Set of Six with Salford hooker Andy Ackers: His favourite and worst memories in rugby league

Salford hooker Andy Ackers 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?

The DW Stadium, Wigan. I’ve only played there once but with me being a Wigan lad, it has been a childhood dream since as far as I can remember to walk out there whether that be for Wigan or against them.

Favourite player?

Terry Newton. Being a hooker myself and a Wigan lad, he was my idol growing up. He was proper tough, god bless him.

Favourite memory?

Getting promoted to Super League with Toronto. The year before we just missed out and the following year we worked so hard and that made it even better.

Worst memory?

When I was playing for Toronto and we lost to London Broncos in the Million Pound Game. I’d just signed from London as well which made it worse for me.

Best match you’ve seen?

I’ve seen so many games but I remember England v Tonga at the 2017 World Cup and we just beat them. That was great to watch.

Your wish for the future of rugby league?

My wish is for everybody to support rugby league and to attract more spectators. I hope Toronto come through and more teams like Ottawa join our great game as it can only be good for the sport with more investors.
