But the scrum-half is also confident that his team have the nous and the skill to disappoint the Cherry and Whites.
“It’s going to be a tough match,” he said.
“It doesn’t get much bigger than Wigan. It’s knock-out rugby and the winner gets to play at Old Trafford.
“We know that all 17 blokes have to be on the money, and all 17 blokes have to play well to give us a good chance of beating Wigan.
“Wigan are a quality side, they throw the ball round a lot. We’re under no illusions about how tough the challenge is going to be.
“We’ll go there with a gameplan, and I’m sure we’ll be there or thereabouts.”
