Warrington Wolves vs Wigan Warriors
The Warrington Wolves welcome their near neighbours and rivals, the Wigan Warriors to the Halliwell Jones Stadium for this 6th round match up from the 2019 Challenge Cup and the great news not only for fans of both teams but for rugby fans in general is that you can watch all of the action live on BBC 1.
The Wolves are seemingly in a 2 way battle for the League Leaders Shield in the Super League but they will be going all out for a win in the cup as well whilst the Warriors are now looking safe from relegation but as there form is so far off of the top teams this season, you have to say that the cu is the best chance of silverware for a club that demands success.
That sets this game up to be a must watch as whist it may not be between 2 top teams as these games normally are, the Wolves are a top team and the Warriors still have top international stars which the knock out nature of this game should guarantee step up and paly to their best.
Warrington have won each of their last 3 outings and 4 of their last 5 at home.
Wigan have also won each of their last 3 outings but just 2 of their last 5 on the road.
Whilst you can never rule out a club with the quality and calibre of Wigan in a knock out cup match, it is almost impossible to look past the standards of these 2 near neighbours this season.
Warrington have attacked with structure and flair and defending as a unit whilst Wigan have relied on individual moments both going forward and at the back.
Warrington also have players who can create something out of nothing, so we can only back the Wolves for what will likely be a comfortable win after a close opening quarter.
