Wane on London

Wane on London

Wigan Warriors are back at the DW Stadium this Sunday, in Round 4 of Super League action, 3pm kick off against the London Broncos.

Wigan are looking to bounce back following the loss at Huddersfield last Saturday while the Broncos head north on the back of a 28-0 home loss to Wakefield and have yet to register a win in three outings.

Despite the poor start for Tony Rea's men, Warriors Head Coach Shaun Wane expects London to be much improved this time out.

"They have not had a good start but they are a quality team. If you look at their playing roster, they have some really good players. Michael Witt came back last week and Chris Bailey went back into the Second Row, they can play. Craig Gower is a quality player and I would class that game against Wakefield as a bit of rustiness and I expect them to massively improve coming to the DW. It is a great Stadium ours with good facilities and teams seem to improve when they play us. I am expecting a bit of a kick back, Tony Rea will have got into the London team after that performance and I am expecting a more full on performance.

"This is a real mental approach for us, to make sure we have more enthusiasm than they do and that comes from the players, we will prepare really well this week and all our players will have all the information they need on London in both attack and defence."
