Wolves of Warrington 3 points 10-11 general
Both Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves are hoping for Betfred Super League Grand Final glory this season, but right now the North West rivals are heading in opposite directions.
The Wigan hosts slipped to fourth place, one spot behind Wolves, after suffering a third straight loss at Wakefield last week.
Warriors head coach Adrian Lam won’t hit the panic button yet given the number of top-choice players he was deprived of against Trinity, but another loss would leave them catching up on the approach. mid-season.
Warrington were another team stripped of many of their stars last week due to the mid-season international between England and the Combined Nations All Stars, but that didn’t affect them too much as they won a 44-18 win over Basement Boys Leigh.
It was the fifth straight Super League victory for the Wire, who are top scorers in the top flight, averaging 32 points per game, almost double Wigan’s.
A powerful offense is clearly beneficial, but it was their defense that was decisive in their last big game in St Helens two weeks ago as they kept the champions untried on their own patch to win 6-2 .
Everything seems to be falling into place for Wolves right now and they look worthy of favorites to claim six straight wins at the home of their big rivals on Wednesday.
The other meeting scheduled for Wednesday between the Castleford Tigers and the champions of St Helens has been canceled because the Tigers could not name a team of 17 players. The Saints won a 24-0 victory.
