No French NK? I thought he looked very lively on Friday and we may need him, especially if Budgie's form doesn't improve.


I just felt it would be a waste of a bench spot in such a big game. It felt like Friday was all about getting him in run out in a game they felt they’d win but he’d either have to start in place of Burgess on Friday or miss out for me. Lammy said he’s not comfortable putting him in at fullback or in the halves yet as he’s learning all the calls.

Burgess frustrates the life out of me because he’s so talented yet his application needs to be better but I’d give him one more go and make it clear we need a performance.

I fancy us to win on Friday and I think we’ve got a good chance to win out the rest of the season, just need Wire and Hull not to and we will get second place which seemed inconceivable a couple of months back.

Big question is ... Will Warrington rest players for the Cup final or will they look to keep 2nd place?

It's a tough dilemma for them isn't it? On the one hand, I think they desperately need a bit of form to go into the cup final and they can't afford to lose 2nd spot, because if they do, they may well lose out on 3rd as well and I think the teams in 4th and 5th have no realistic chance of reaching Old Trafford. So, logically, they should go all out for this one. On the other hand, Saints have an utterly meaningless match against Leeds, so they may well rest players. It leaves Steve Price with a bit of a conundrum. Hopefully, it all works out in our favour, because I think we really need to win this match to maintain our chances of a top 3 finish. Win this, I think we are favourites for top 3, lose and we could see ourselves 4 points behind both Hull and Warrington, with only 4 to play - it's a big ask then.

We are in a position where we can just as easily finish 2nd as 7th (or anywhere in between).

I think the biggest difference between the Hull KR game and the beginning of the season is confidence. We have that going into the Warrington game and they are floundering a bit, this gives us every chance though we will need to be better than last week.

You ought to win on Friday as Warrington will rest, or not risk players. The best shot of giving Saints a game, and some how scraping an unlikely win to gain silverware, outweighs two league points in my view.
Not saying in any way that the points aren't important, however, I Expect to see a team similar to the one beaten by Saints last week.

To be fair that team gave Saints a decent game, play like that and they have a decent chance if we play like we did on Friday.

Disagree , this Wigan team has suddenly got a sniff of something as seen many times before , OT is certainly in their sights and I wouldn't back against you
