History beckons as Super League leaves Europe for the first time


Wigan Warriors and Hull FC have headed to Wollogong, Australia to compete in the first ever Super League game played outside of Europe.

Both are looking to build on big wins to start the season. The Warriors won 40-12 at Salford Red Devils while Hull won 38-12 against Huddersfield Giants.

The Warriors have made two changes to the squad that won in Greater Manchester with Sean O’Loughlin and Joe Burgess coming back into the squad after being declared fit. They replace Liam Forsyth and Gabe Hamlin in the 19 man squad.

The Black and Whites have made just one change as well with Liam Watts coming into the squad replacing Brad Fash.

The match will kick off at 7.45 local time and the referee will be senior Australian referee Matt Cecchin.
