THE TEAM NEWS
- Wigan Warriors come into this Grand Final looking for their first triumph since 2018 and with Old Trafford expected to be bursting at the seams with their supporters, this will almost feel like a home match for Matt Peet’s men.
- They will be expecting a much tougher test than posed by Hull KR last week who the Warriors breezed past, and they will be looking to the likes of Field, French and Marshall for inspiration.
Squad: Field, French, King, Wardle, Marshall, Smith, Powell, Isa, Farrell, Smithies, Ellis, Havard, Pearce-Paul, Shorrocks, Mago, O'Neill, Miski, Hill, Nsemba, Hampshire, Dupree.
- Catalan Dragons arrive at Old Trafford looking to make history by winning their first ever Grand Final and to make amends for the defeat they suffered against St Helens in the final two years ago.
- While some of the recent Catalan teams may have had a touch more flair, this outfit has some serious strength down the middle and they will be looking to impose themselves in those areas of the pitch to get the edge there.
Squad: Mourgue, Davies, Keighran, May, Pearce, McMeeken, McIlorum, Bousquet, Whitley, Seguier, Garcia, Da Costa, Navarrete, Chan, Romano, Ikuvalu, Taukeiaho, Dezaria, Johnstone, Ma'u, Tomkins.
This year’s Grand Final between Wigan and Catalans promises to be one of the most close-fought finals in recent years with little to choose between the two sides. They have met three times this season with the Dragons winning two of them and that will give them confidence coming into this one. They had a tough semi-final against St Helens which may have taken a bit out of them but at the same time, will have most likely sharpened them for this impending battle. The Warriors may be a little undercooked potentially with that in mind. Their win over Hull KR was pretty routine so the intensity of this game may take them aback a little. They will however be fresh and ready to go here and that, along with a touch more creativity in their ranks, should see them edge what will surely be a very close game.
