Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves

The Wigan Warriors take on the Warrington Wolves in the first blockbuster match up from the 2018 Magic Weekend and the great news for Rugby fans is that you can watch this game, and all of the matches from the Magic Weekend, via our Super League live streaming partners.

These 2 near neighbours always give us great matches whenever they meet but this game has all of the attributes of been a special game and of been simply an un-missable match as along with been full of internationals stars, these 2 sides are the 2 form teams of the Super League.

The Warriors head into the round in 2nd place where they are just 1 place and 2 points ahead of the Wolves. With a gap back to Hull FC in 4th, a win in this game for either side would really cement their top 4 place whilst a loss would drag them back into the battle for the play-offs.

The Warriors started the season having to grind out victories but over the past few weeks they have started to open up and are now starting to dominate sides whilst the Wolves have played with freedom throughout the majority of the season and especially after getting past their slow start to the season.

Both teams enjoyed good wins in the cup last week, with the Wolves especially impressing in the 2nd half against the Wolfpack.

It has been a tricky week off of the field for Wigan as their star fullback Sam Tomkins has announced he will depart for France come the end of the season whilst 2 of their star players are yet to re-sign for next season amongst NRL interest. With all of the media attention on the Magic Weekend, it will be interesting to see if any of that has an effect on the Warriors, although those fears will have been helped by the re-signing of Oliver Gildart.

Form

The Warriors have won each of their last 6 matches in the league and 9 of their last 10.

The Wolves form has been even better as they have now won each of their last 8 games in the league.

Team News

It is a case of one out one in for Wigan as Morgan Escare returns but captain Sean O’Loughlin is out. George Williams is named despite a wrist injury concerns and Josh Woods also makes the squad.

Warrington make no changes to their squad.

Prediction

This is one of the tougher matches to predict as both teams are full of quality, both of are in great form and both have players who can step up their performances in front of big crowds, rather than crumble under the pressure.

In many ways this game really is a toss of the coin and it will more than likely be a close game throughout. In matches such as that, it comes down which team can take their chances when on offer and over the past few weeks it has been the Wolves who have converted chances the better and who have the biggest attacking threats.

In the likes of Josh Charnley, who has scored for fun since returning to the game, Warrington have blown away their opposition recently and whilst we certainly don’t expect them to do that this week, we do expect them to keep their noses in front until the final whistle with a last minute winner unlikely to happen again for Wigan at the Magic Weekend.
