THE TEAM NEWS
- Warrington Wolves highlighted their ability to turn up in big games as they prevailed in a defensive battle with reigning champions St. Helens last week, restricting Saints to just two points in a low-scoring affair.
- Wire crossed for the only try of the game in the first half and that proved to be enough as their defence stood firm to claim a brilliant success but their squad has been hit by injuries and international call-ups this week so it will be a much-changed side that takes to the field here.
21-man squad: Akauola, Austin, Burgess, Butler, Charnley, Davis, Dean, Doro, Gannon, Hill, Hughes, Lineham, Longstaff, Mamo, Mulhern, Robson, Thewlis, Walker, Whitehead, Widdop, Wrench
Unavailable: Matty Ashton, Greg Inglis, Jason Clark, Daryl Clark, Cooper, Ben Currie, Toby King, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford
- Leigh Centurions were unable to build on their solid showing against Catalans Dragons last time out as they were blown away by Hull FC at the weekend, extending their losing streak to 11 matches.
- Despite showing some good signs with the ball once again, the Centurions were terrible defensively and conceded 64 points which was their highest total of the season and it is clear where they must improve if they are to earn that elusive victory.
18-man squad: Bell, Brierley, Gee, Hellewell, Hood, Ioane, Mason, McCarthy, Mellor, Mullen, Peteru, Reynolds, Russell, Sa’u, Thompson, Thornley, Tierney, Wildie
Unavailable: Tom Spencer, Blake Wallace, Keenan Brand, Ben Flower, Alex Gerrard, Brendan Elliot, Adam Sidlow, Nathan Peats
Warrington Wolves put to bed some murmurs surrounding their ability
to turn up in big games as they produced a superb defensive effort to
edge reigning champions St. Helens last week. They kept their opponents
tryless and will now look to build on that effort against bottom side
Leigh Centurions. The away side remained without a win after a huge loss
to Hull FC last week and even though Warrington have lost plenty of
talent ahead of this week’s game, they still have enough class in their
squad to get the job done and they should be able to win this by at
least 18 points.
