Behind the Sticks - Week 12

What a difference a week makes!

But a different proposition faces Noble and the Warriors this weekend. Hull FC themselves will be playing in front of a brand new coach for the very first time on Sunday. All Wigan fans can point out the impact a new coaching arriving can have on your team.

Hull have been in pretty decent form whilst they have been waiting for Peter Sharp to arrive and can only improve with his input. One player who will be looking to continue his outstanding form in Super League is Hulls top scorer Kirk Yeaman. What a season he is having and whoever plays right centre for Wigan will more than have their hands full.

Brian Noble has added Nathan McAvoy to the squad this week and maybe he will play this weekend against Hull. It’s vital that Wigan continue to improve and gain momentum from last week’s outstanding victory against Huddersfield Giants.

Brett Dallas misses this week’s game through injury so McAvoy could play on the wing. But I take his wing partner Pat Richards to open the scoring in this game. He looked a different player last week, bagging a brace at the Giants.

I think the match will be a classic and a real tough encounter.

I go for the Warriors to continue last week’s form and snatch a victory on Humberside.

Winning Margin – Wigan to beat Hull FC by 1-5 points

1st Try Scorer – Mark Calderwood
