Tony Clubb excited for World Club Series game with Brisbane Broncos
Former London Captain says he joined Wigan for ‘nights like these’
- Wigan Warriors face Brisbane Broncos in World Club Series at the DW Stadium on Saturday 20 February
Looking ahead to the World Club Series showdown with Brisbane Broncos, Tony Clubb says he joined Wigan for ‘nights like these.’
The Warriors host the Broncos at the DW Stadium on Saturday 20 February and Clubb for one cannot wait for the game.
“It’s one of the reasons I signed for Wigan,” he said. “For nights like this, to be part of games like this, to play in the big games on the biggest stage of all.
“A World Club Series game against an NRL side really is the pinnacle of the sport, my hairs are standing on end just thinking about it and I can’t wait for February to come around.”
Last year a 20,000+ crowd packed out the DW Stadium and Clubb hopes the fans turn out to support the team once again.
Clubb said: “The atmosphere in last year’s game was something I’ll never forget, these games really mean a lot to the Wigan fans and the buzz they create is incredible.
“To walk out and see all four stands full of Wigan fans is something that you thrive on, it really does drive you on and makes you give that little bit more.”
Wigan came up just short last year with a Corey Parker extra-time goal sealing the win for the NRL side.
Clubb says the players need no reminding of how close they came in 2015.
“We couldn’t have got much closer could we?” he said. “We hung in there and defended well then took our chance when we got it to force extra-time. To lose like we did (from a penalty goal) really hurt us but it’s up to us to try and go one better this time.”
