Wane desperate for Wigan win against Broncos

Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane is desperate to beat Brisbane Broncos, when the two teams clash on Saturday February 21 next year in the expanded World Club Series.

The Warriors travelled Down Under earlier this season to face the Sydney Roosters in the World Club Challenge, a game that they lost.

But Wane is delighted to have the chance to wreak vengence on an Australian team.

“We are really excited to be able to represent Super League in the World Club Series,” he said.

“Having played against Sydney Roosters earlier this year we know what to expect and we will be doing all we can to get the win.

“Wigan have played out some great games with Brisbane over the years and we are expecting this game to be right up there with the best.

“The new competition is going to be very exciting and we can’t wait to be part of it.”

Brisbane Broncos head coach Wayne Bennett is also anticipating a tough game when his team travels over to the North of England next year.

“It is a fantastic start to the season for the Broncos to bring the team over to England to play in this series.,” he said.

“Wigan are an impressive team and I know that after losing the World Club Challenge last year in Australia, they will be out to make amends.

“It will be a brilliant contest for the fans to watch and also a great experience for the players to test themselves against a top team from a different competition.

“This is not an opportunity that comes around often for NRL players.”

Tickets for the game between Wigan Warriors and Brisbane Broncos at DW Stadium on Saturday February 21 cost from £21 for adults, £14 for concessions and children. Tickets will be available from Tuesday November 18th from the club’s ticket office, by calling 0871 6633552 or by visiting www.wiganwarriors.com.
