All eyes on Wire-Wigan clash

The magic of the Challenge Cup will be evident at a packed house at the Halliwell Jones Stadium when Warrington take on Wigan on Saturday.

The Wolves have won the cup for the past two seasons, but will have to go some way to match the feat of their opponents this weekend who retained the trophies seven times in the late 80s and early 90s.

Despite the game being televised by BBC, the Wolves have sold out, meaning a crowd of more than 13,000 will be expected.

Wolves’ Head of Coaching and Rugby Tony Smith said: “How close this weekend’s game will be is hard to predict but it will certainly be entertaining. They always are. We’ve had some really, really good games against Wigan in the last couple of years and I’ve got no doubt it will be again. Both teams can defend pretty well and like to attack too. The teams are really talented right across the board and that can make for a great fixture and a great contest.”
