Warriors Back in Action Easter Monday

Warriors Back in Action Easter Monday

Wigan Warriors are back in action on Easter Monday with an awy trip to Craven Park to face Hull KR, the game has a 3pm kick off.

Wigan have already faced Rovers in pre-season and the Warriors are expecting a tough test against what will be a determined Hull KR side.

Speaking last week talking about the busy Easter programme, Head Coach Shaun Wane told us,

"Hull KR are a great team and like us they had a very tough game, on Good Friday they had a local derby against Hull. I am sure we will be sore as will they, it will be an interesting game to watch, to coach in and to play in. Craig Sandercock has done a great job there, they have some good quality players as we found in the pre-season friendly so we will need to go across to Hull and do a good job on them."

The game will see the return of Blake Green and Scott Taylor on Monday to their fomer Club following their close season move to the Warriors from East Yorkshire and Shaun added,

"They will be both looking forward to going back there (if selected. I'm sure and  they will be looking for big performances."
