Reigning champions Wigan Warriors travel across Lancashire to face last years runners up Warrington Wolves in a mouth-watering First Utility Super League clash. 

The Warriors, who have had a fairly poor start to the season by their high standards, are aiming to claim their first away win of the season after a disappointing defeat at high flyers Castleford on their last journey.

Warrington have also had a lackluster start, but are looking to build some more momentum after three straight wins and are unchanged from their win over Salford. New addition Matthew Russell will be pushing for his first Wolves start with Stefan Ratchford moving up to play in the half backs alongside Richie Myler. 

Wigan will once again be without inspirational captain Sean O'Loughlin and hooker Michael Mcllorum who is still suspended following his high tackle in the game away at Castleford. The Warriors will have to improve defensively if they are to stand any chance against the bookies favourites.

The Wolves are now starting to look as solid as ever under the experienced Tony Smith and the Cherry and Whites are going to have provide something special to break them down. 

Warrington start as the favourites, but as we saw in the 2013 Grand Final, anything can happen in these games.
