Should be a good game. i think Wigan will have enough, but with beating Leeds and drawing with Cats, Cas are clearly a formidable team at home.

Beware of the wounded tiger, a bad news week for a side that has already showed some metal could make this a tricky game for the obvious favourites Wigan.

There could be an upset on the cards here, but I'll stick with Wigan by 10.

Very interesting game this one. Cas are looking good and at home - not an easy place to go at any time, but if the Tigers are on top of their game then they could take this one. If they're off the boil then the Warriors at a canter.
Integrity is shown when no-one is looking.

Pies by 10 methinks. Even missing a load of forwards the Wigan machine seems to still be capable of grinding out performances.

If wigan win this i think they will win it well, Having said that it is exactly the type of game Cas get up for and win, they have already shown it this season, so I'm going either a tight win for Cas or a comfortable one for wigan.

I think Cas +12 on the coupon is like buying money. Wigan might pull out a win, but it won't be by much.

Well i haven't seen that much of Wigan yet and i know they have some injuries, but i still rate them based on what i have seen. Cas for me are at any time likely to come up with a big performance against a big team, but also Wigan are capable of racking up points for fun when they get in the mood, On paper even allowing for injuries Wigan are a class above, It's more about which Cas turn up for me.

A certain John Player Trophy final excepted, Wigan always seems to be a difficult game for Cas. This is off the top of my head without any research but I seem to recall the Pies putting one or two big scores on Cas, even down Wheldon Road way.

Cas 14 Wigan 32.

You're right. Wigan generally batter Cas in this fixture. I like the way Cas seem to be building a defiant team spirit this season so far though. They've already picked up three more points at home than most people thought they would.
