It’s going to be unbelievably tough for us. I’m not sure I remember too many teams looking stronger on paper then this current Roosters side. We’ve a decent enough team and our outside backline looks good but the halves and packs are where games are won and lost and they kill us in both areas.


You surprised me when you beat Cronulla a couple of years back. They had strong halves and pack too and from memory were only missing Barba and Ennis from their Premiership winning team.

I am looking forward to the game. The Roosters are 3 from 3 in their WCC games so will go level with you in WCC wins if they prevail.

If Wane was still in charge they might have a shot but it’ll only be Lam’s 3rd game in charge and the Wigan team will still be adjusting to a new coach so can’t see them challenging.

Just a brief look at the representative status of the likely Sydney Roosters team demonstrates the enormity of the task facing Wigan:

FB: James Tedesco (Australia and NSW, former Italy) State of Origin Man of the Match 2018, Brad Fittler Medal State of Origin player of series 2018.
WG: Brett Morris (former Australia and NSW)
WG: Daniel Tupou (Tonga and former NSW)
CE: Latrell Mitchell (Australia and NSW)
CE: Joseph Manu (New Zealand)
FE: Luke Keary (Australia) Clive Churchill Medal as best player in the NRL Grand Final 2018.
HB: Cooper Cronk (former Australia and QLD)


LF: Victor Radley
SR: Boyd Cordner (Australia and NSW captain)
SR: Angus Crichton (NSW)
PR: Jared Warea-Hargreaves (New Zealand)
PR: Sio Siua Taukeiaho (Tonga and former New Zealand)
HK: Jake Friend


Interchange:

LF: Isaac Liu (New Zealand and former Samoa)
SR: Mitchell Aubusson
PR: Zane Tetevano
PR: Lindsay Collins



I doubt that any other NRL team has such a glittering array of representative talent. Certainly no Super League team, including Wigan, does. Even non-representative players Jake Friend, and rising star Victor Radley, are outstanding.
