St Helens vs Warrington Wolves
St Helens take on the Warrington Wolves at the Totally Wicked Stadium in this blockbuster round 10 match up from the 2019 Super League season and the great news for fans of both teams and for rugby fans in general is that you can watch all of the action live online via our Rugby Super League live streaming partners.
Matches don’t often come around too often with the anticipation and excitement that this game has around it in the build-up and whilst that buzz can sometimes be misplaced, that certainly isn’t the case in this game.
Whenever you get a first vs second match up, you are always set for a high quality game but with a packed house, 2 local rivals and the fact that both sides have only loss 1 game each this season and you have the perfect set up for a match of the season contender and a possible early chance for both sides to take a huge step towards the League Leaders Shield.
With both teams level on points in the league, the winner of this game will of course go top of the table but there is so much more to this game than that.
On a player point of view, Blake Austin and James Roby have grabbed the attention of all fans this season and are looking like early favourites for the Man of Steel award but the biggest question that will be answered in this game is how will the Saints react to losing a game as they come into this one on the back of their only defeat of the season to date in the South of France against Catalans.
Both teams have lost just the 1 game this season, both in the South of France but whilst Saints loss came last time out, Warrington are on a 5 match winning run.
Saints bring back both Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Jonny Lomax for this top of the table clash.
Wolves make just the 1 change with Jack Hughes replacing Sitaleki Akauola.
Just where do you start with a game such as this! Both teams are in great form, last week aside for the Saints and both have squads packed with quality, packed with internationals and packed with game changers.
In what will be a packed house and huge atmosphere, the winner of the game will likely be the team that handles the pressure as much as it will be down to the usual things but both teams are evenly matched there as well with lot’s of experience of cup finals, play-offs and internationals amongst the players of both teams.
Our top tip would be to simply sit back, turn on SkySports (or watch online) and enjoy but if we have to pick a winner (and we do sadly), we just feel that in Blake Austin the Wolves have the standout player in the league at the moment and with the margins so fine, he could prove the difference but with so much quality on both sides, there are numerous players who could provide that moment of brilliance to win the game.
