Behind The Sticks - Week 22

The Warriors return home this Friday evening looking for 2 crucial engage Super League points.

Wigan Warriors v Wakefield Trinity Wildcats

The Warriors will be glad to be returning to the JJB after losing to St Helens in the league last week. Unlike their previous visit to the home of St Helens I feel there where a number of positives to take away from the game last week.

The Warriors side never gave in and to their credit they got a couple of well deserved tries towards the end of the game and who knows what would of happened if young Colban had taken that ball on the line. That game now is history.

Hopefully the Warriors will continue at home where they left off last time with that excellent win against the Warrington Wolves. It will be that sort of commitment and desire that will be needed to defeat a rejuvenated Wakefield Trinity Wildcats side. With captain fantastic Kris Radlinski to return to the line up along with Brett Dallas and Kevin Brown the Warriors back line again begins to look formidable.

The Wildcats will be no pushovers though and since they replaced Shane McNally with Tony Smith the Wildcats look a different side. They seem to be the side that took 2004 by storm. A huge pack marshalled by some top halfbacks. The Warriors will need to pay particular attention too Ben Jefferies and David Solomona if they are to win this one. Both these players are extremely talented and if given the opportunity they will win the game for Wakefield.

I think this game will be really close but I think together with home advantage and the return of some key Warriors personal the match will just swing Wigan’s way with Kris Radlinski opening the scoring.

Winning Margin – Wigan to beat Wakefield by 6-10 points

1st Try Scorer – Kris Radlinski
