Wigan and Salford duel for Grand Final place

Posted by

Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils come together for the second time in three weeks for a place in the Super League Grand Final.

The Warriors edged the Red Devils 18-12 last time, but will come into the game off the back of a 40-10 defeat against bitter rivals St Helens.

As for Salford, they come in after a 22-0 win over Castleford Tigers last week, and come in off the back of eight wins in their last nine games.

Their Head Coach Ian Watson said: “We’ve got to make sure we approach this game as what it is – a one-off game. We need to be at our best and I’m sure Wigan will try to be at their best.”

That defeat last week for Wigan was only their second since Magic Weekend.

Warriors Head Coach Adrian Lam said: “We fought really hard in the second half of the season to finish in second spot and we earned that right.

“We know how that important that is and we’ve got this game on Friday night to make amends and hopefully if we get it right, we’ve got a chance at reaching Old Trafford.”

The match kicks off at 7.30pm.
