Warriors Academy to face Australian Schoolboys

Wigan Warriors Academy will face the Australian Schoolboys on Saturday 29 November (12:00pm) at the Solid Strip Community Stadium, Orrell as part of their UK Tour.

Fresh from their 2014 Grand Final victory over Warrington Wolves, Matty Peet's side will host the tourists in their second game of the five match tour. Commenting on the game Matty Peet said:

"We are delighted to be able to test ourselves against the best young talent Australia has to offer. The team proved that they are the best in this country by way of their Grand Final success and this should be a huge test for all of them.

"We will be working hard to make sure we are well prepared for this game. We will have to be ready to put in a great performance as we will be facing an excellent team."

The game is one of three warm up games ahead of the Australian Schoolboys facing England in two international games with Wigan's Jake Shorrocks, Luke Waterworth, Nick Gregson and Oliver Gildart all being called up to the national team ahead of the internationals.

2015 Season Ticket Holders that have renewed by the time of the fixture will be admitted for free, however with demand expected to be high fans are asked to get their tickets in advance for the game from the DW Stadium Ticket Office.

Matty added: "We had some bumper crowds at Orrell last season and I'm sure we can expect another great turnout by the Wigan fans who can get that rugby fix during the off season with this mouth-watering clash, I for one cannot wait!"

Tickets for the clash are available from the DW Stadium Ticket Office, the Ticket Hotline 0871 66 33 552 or via Warriors eTickets costing £5 for adults and £3 for concessions.
