VIDEO:Noble on Phelps and Leeds Game

Wigan Warriors head over the Pennines on Saturday as they face Leeds Rhinos at Headingley-Carnegie in the Quarter Finals of the Carnegie Challenge Cup, 2.30pm kick off.

The Warriors go into the game on the back of wins against Whitehaven, Warrington and Wakefield while the Rhinos are unbeaten in the last seven and indeed Wigan are the last team to beat Leeds, courtesy of a 14-10 win in Super League at Headingley in April.

Leeds, who have a six-point lead at the top of Super League, are the bookies favourites to lift the cup at Wembley on August 30 but the Warriors did knock the Rhinos out of the competition in 2007 with a 22-18 win in the 5th Round and have a good record at Leeds.

With the exception of Sean O'Loughlin ,Wigan have a full squad to select from and new signing Cameron Phelps is also included in the 19 man party and could make his debut in Saturday's 'Roses' Clash.

We spoke to Head Coach Brian Noble about the addition of Phelps to the squad as well as looking forward to game,

"Headingley is an exciting place to go play Rugby and we have had some recent success there, that will count for nothing on Saturday, but we are determined to do well.

"They are a good team with game breakers, we feel we know who they are, we have to pay attention to what they do. They are playing now with a bit more maturity, the players have all grown up together and they are reaping the fruits but we are not a bad team ourselves."
