Wigan Warriors v Wakefield Trinity Preview
The Wigan Warriors welcome Wakefield Trinity across the Pennines for a match up that has the possibility of been an entertaining one.
Wigan are one of the sports top teams, with seemingly never ending resources and incredible squad depth whilst Wakefield are a club who class survival in the topflight as their main goal every season and who have one of the smallest budgets in the competition.
Whilst that can lead to some easy wins for the Warriors in these games, Wakefield also have the capability of beating everybody on their day and that is what makes this one such an interesting matchup.
The DW Stadium in Wigan plays host to this one and whilst it is one of the biggest and modernist stadiums in the sport it can also be one that struggles to create a good atmosphere.
That is often the case in a game such as this where the stadium will be far from full and that plays into the hands of Wakefield who are more used to smaller crowds.
