» Warriors have the Inside Track on their Cup Opponents
Wigan begin the defence of the Tetley's Challenge Cup this Friday as the competition gets underway for the 14 Super League Clubs.
Wigan are of course, the current Cup Holders, after their 16-0 win at Wembley last August against Hull FC and Shaun Wane is keep to repeat that feat again in 2014.
The first hurdle to overcome is Dewsbury Rams at the Tetley's Stadium this Friday and Shaun told us he has been speaking this week to a number of his players who played against the Rams last Sunday for Workington,there were five of them in Jack Murphy, Jack Hughes, Jordan James, Connor Farrell and Gil Dudson who scored a try off the bench,
"We have had a chat to the players this week who played for Workington. We have had them in and they have gone through the personel in the Dewsbury team with us. They have threats in their team there is no doubt about that.
"We have also been through the footage of every game they have played, we have also had them watched as well since the draw itself was made. We have a lot of information on them. At the end of the day you need to make sure you are ruthless with the ball and not give them a chance. If you do that you should come away with a win."
Dewsbury also have a strong Wigan connection with former players Karl Pryce and Wayne Godwin in their squad as well as current Community Coach Tommy Gallagher who has been a regular in the Rams side this season.
