Behind The Sticks - Week 12

After another defeat last week to the Bradford Bulls, Wigan will be targeting this Friday’s game has a must win game! : -

Wigan Warriors v Widnes Vikings

After three successive defeats Wigan return home to face the Widnes Vikings in what has become a must win game for the Warriors. Make no mistake though the Vikings will arrive at the JJB Stadium confident they can spring an upset. Especially since their quality performance against the Leeds Rhinos last weekend.

Wigan though will welcome back one of the best wingers in the world in Brian Carney on Friday night. Carney is class and brings a charisma to the field of play that very few players bring. I think Brian’s return will be just the boost the Warriors need and I think this will lead to a comfortable victory for the Warriors.

One great boost for the Vikings going into this match is the return of key stand off Owen Craigie. Owen Craigie is a quality player and one who has been very badly missed in vital matches this season. If Craigie plays well Widnes play well. I expect Widnes to be competitive at first but quite simply they couldn’t be going to face Wigan at a worse time. Carney and co will be on fire for this and expect Brian Carney to score the first try as Wigan run riot.

Winning Margin – Wigan to beat Widnes by 16-20 points

1st Try Scorer – Brian Carney
