Noble Looks Ahead To Millennium Magic Weekend

Super League heads to South Wales this Saturday and Sunday with the Millennium Magic weekend. There are some mouthwatering matches, no more so than Wigan Warriors against St Helens which takes place on Saturday at 7pm.

Looking ahead to the event, Head Coach Brian Noble told us he was right behind the idea,

"I hope it's a very successful event for the game. All the matches are fantasic, they are the best games in Rugby League. What we have to do is transfer that parochial feeling, that local derby environment down to Wales and that's the challenge.

"It's important we all get behind that because who wouldn't want to watch the three games that are on display each day. You only have to look over Easter, how great the games were and any neutral thinking about it should go."

On the game itself against St Helens, Brian added,

"We were beaten last time we played St Helens at home and that's not nice. We have to find a way to win. They will be looking to beat us and we will need to improve our performance again by raising the bar in relation to our own show."

Meanwhile, Wigan will check on the fitness of Chris Ashton over the next couple of days. Ashton was taken to hospital after Friday's game at Salford as a precaution with an ankle injury. The good news is that x-rays showed nothing is broken.
