Club captain Andy “Chest” Thornley was another key signing early on in our 2015 campaign. He is a second-rower with a proven pedigree, having come through the Wigan Academy ranks as well as seeing action with Salford, Whitehaven, and perhaps most significantly, Leigh. He also saw brief action on loan with the Lions in 2014 before re-joining us permanently partway through 2015. His experience and consistency throughout the 2016 season was vital as the Lions successfully consolidated in the championship, but unfortunately his 2017 campaign was halted by injury in May. Up to that point Andy had scored seven tries in 13 appearances, but despite being injured he remained a key member of the squad’s leadership group.
