Can't see anything other than a Warrington win personally. I think their pack is far stronger than ours, and Smith is a more tactically astute coach (although I wouldn't replace Wane he's still been very good so far).

Also recently we've been unable to beat Warrington.

No offence to Salford, but win or lose, this match is the yardstick for seeing where Wigan are this season.

the loss of the star players from last season will see the pies flounder in this game wire by 18

Can't see past a Wire win ether myself. Would need a combination of Wire playing below par and Wigan being on top of their game for it to go any other way.

Wire to have an off day and Wigan to show why they can't be written off this season

Wigan are second favourites, but I think we'll give this a real go. We need to hang on at the start, move them around and use our back 5. If Wire play as well as they can, we'll be in trouble, but if they dip we need to take advantage.

Don't think it'll be a classic, whoever wins, will win by 3 tries

Hope for a big crowd and plenty of noise.

Wigan by a score and half.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Is that 9 or 30? 30 seems a bit disrespectful.
