Wayne Bennett excited by Wigan challenge

Brisbane Broncos head coach Wayne Bennett admits it will be a huge challenge for his team to lock horns with Wigan Warriors in the World Club Series – stating that he is fully aware an “impressive” Warriors side will be out for revenge against the NRL.

The Warriors slumped to defeat against Sydney Roosters in the World Club Challenge earlier this year, and although Bennett’s Broncos represent different opposition, he is in no doubt about how tough a test it will be against a Wigan side looking to get one over on the Australians in 2015.

“It is a fantastic start to the season for the Broncos to bring the team over to England to play in this series.” said Bennett.

“Wigan are an impressive team and I know that after losing the World Club Challenge last year in Australia, they will be out to make amends.

“It will be a brilliant contest for the fans to watch and also a great experience for the players to test themselves against a top team from a different competition.

“This is not an opportunity that comes around often for NRL players.”
