Willie Isa is looking forward to the atmosphere of the Halliwell Jones Stadium when Wigan take on Warrington away this Wednesday.

Adrian Lam’s men face the Wire for the second time in 2021, having lost the first at the DW Stadium in June. Much like the game in June, this one is also the first of two inside a week for the Warriors, with the challenge of Leigh Centurions awaiting them on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking to Wigan TV ahead of the Round 16 fixture, the 32 year-old discussed the challenge of the double game week ahead.

“It is what it is. We’ve got to roll our sleeves up and get ready to go.

“That’s what the Wigan teams have done before us and that’s what we have to do. We have to keep turning up; we’ll be ready on Wednesday.”

In dramatic contrast the the Cherry and Whites, Warrington haven’t played since the start of July, having been halted by Covid protocols following some positive results in their squad.

Despite their long lay-off, Isa expects a good Wire team on Wednesday.

“They’ve been one of the top sides, they are expansive and play with a lot of energy.” 

He also admitted the atmosphere of big away games such as this, is something he gets particularly excited for.

“Our fans always turn up on these away games. When they are all up there screaming for us, I’m looking forward to that.”
