Association football has Bobby Moore, so who will rugby have? Brent Council has given planning permission for a Rugby Football League statute to be erected at Wembley Stadium:
The application proposes the erection of a statue, to the north-eastern side of the outer stadium pedestrian concourse. This is a joint venture between Wembley National Stadium Limited (WNSL) and Rugby Football League (RFL).The application seeks consent for a statue of a certain size at this stage. The detailed design is to be unveiled at a later date, though the submission does specify this to be a bronze statue place on a steel base, also that it is to be Rugby Football League themed and a tribute to the sport
The plinth would be 1.5m high and the statue itself 3.3m, making a total 4.8m from ground level.
