Wembley Murphy statue delayed
12:00pm Friday 9th August 2013 in News
A NEW statue to feature rugby league greats including Warrington president Alex Murphy will now not be finished until 2014.
The work featuring five legends of the game, Billy Boston, Eric Ashton, Martin Offiah, Gus Risman and Alex Murphy, was due to be unveiled at Wembley for the World Cup.
But the RFL now says it will be opened at next year’s Challenge Cup final in August 2014.
A spokesman for the RFL said; “This is a complex project and the most important thing is to get all the details of the project right.
“We are pleased that a great deal has already been achieved but we are conscious that we will not be able to have everything in place for November and therefore we will continue to progress the necessary planning process and other details to complete the work in time for an unveiling ceremony at Wembley ahead of next year’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup Final.”
