Wigan travel to Hull KR on Sunday in the Stobart Super League knowing a win will secure a top spot finish and the honour of winning the League Leaders Shield.
Head Coach Shaun Wane was gutted not to be at Wembley last week after defeat in the Semi-Final and admits he would have much preferred to have been at the show piece event with Wigan rather than a weekend off, he told us,
"I was disappointed to have last week off but we have trained well, we have got alot of work in skill based, our error rate in training has been really low, the lads have been great. They had a couple of days off to relax but since coming back they are raring to go and are ready for this weekend.
A trip to Craven Park is never easy and Shaun is expecting a battle from a Rovers side who still have a chance of a Play-Off spot themselves,
"This week is a tough game, all our recent games at Hull KR have been hard. They have some real quality in their team, they are very well coached and very well disciplined. They have lost a couple of games and we need to capitalise on that.
"Michael Dobson is a massive threat, he dictates their direction and he has a great kicking game.They also have a tough middle unit who run hard, Craig Hall who I think will play in the Centre is a great player.
"The League Leaders Shield is important to us and this is one game we really want to get over the line and get the two points. Being the most consistent team over the year is really important to me, our points difference record is fantastic and if we perform how we have trained this week we will be OK for Sunday."
The action gets underway at 3pm but the turnstiles at the ground will open at 12.20pm as the Hull KR and Wigan Warriors Academy sides meet at 12.30pm in a curtain raiser clash.This is the penultimate game for the 18's in the Valvoline Academy for this season.
