IT is something that hardly ever happened when he was playing the game but ex-Wire winger Mark Forster is about to be overtaken.

Foz, once the winner of the Fastest Man in Rugby League competition, is 14th in the club's all-time points scoring chart.

But the Wire flyer's 769 total, made up of 191 tries and three goals from 458 appearances between 1983 and 2,000 is now in the sights of current star Stef Ratchford.

The Warrington and England full-back needs nine more points to catch the Warrington-born legend.

Ben Westwood's game-time from the subs bench against Castleford took his total to 438 matches in primrose and blue and made him joint seventh in the all-time appearances for the club, alongside the Great Britain international prop forward Billy Cunliffe, who played from 1914 to 1930.

Scoring records have been researched for Wire home matches against Wigan, who will be visiting The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday.
