Greenwood looking to turn heads in Barcelona

Wigan Warriors and England star Joe Greenwood believes this weekend’s showdown with Catalans at Nou Camp is a big opportunity to grow the sport of rugby league.

FC Barcelona’s iconic ground will play host to the clash between the Challenge Cup holders and Super League champions in a landmark fixture for the competition, and Greenwood was confident and hopeful of raising the profile of rugby league as a result.

“I reckon there will be a lot of supporters from Barcelona who will be pushing it and saying, ‘Come and have a look at this, it’s a different sport playing’,” he said.

“Hopefully we can turn a few heads and keep growing the game, it will be a good game and we can produce some good rugby to turn heads for fans and change them into rugby league supporters.
