Warrington in a good place as two Wigan tests loom on the horizon

Warrington’s 10-match winning streak faces arguably its toughest test this Saturday as they take on Wigan at the Magic Weekend.

It will be the first of two meetings inside three weeks between the two sides, having been drawn together in the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup.

The Wolves progressed following a fiery encounter with Toronto Wolfpack on Sunday, eventually winning 66-10, while the Warriors rolled their sleeves up to see off a plucky Hull KR at KCOM Craven Park.

A key component of their excellent run has been full-back Stefan Ratchford.

He said: “We’re in a good spot at the moment, we know we’ve still got a lot of improvement in us and that’s a good sign.

“We’re heading in the right direction with our attacking structure, we’ve tweaked a few things and our defensive structure is getting better.

“We’ve got a massive test against Wigan. Whenever you play Wigan it’s always a special game.

“The Challenge Cup quarter-final is going to be no different from that, it’s always a packed house and an intense game, so we’ve got a couple of tough weeks coming up but we’re looking forward to it.”

Warrington have won their last two meetings with Wigan, both by the same score (16-10).

They drew 24-24 at Magic Weekend last season.

In between the two Wigan fixtures, Warrington host Hull at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday May 25.
