Ben is another product of the Wigan Academy system, and 2019 will be his fifth full season with the Lions. He is a tough prop-forward who never gives less than 100%, and is often used as an impact player from the bench. The play-off final victory over Workington Town marked Ben’s 100th appearance for the Lions at the age of just 23. Ben grabbed just one try in 2018, but it was a historic moment when he scored Swinton’s first-ever try on Canadian soil against Toronto Wolfpack. Ben is a player who always gives everything and is one of the Lions’ most consistent performers.
