  • Powell: ”It’s going to be electric this Friday.”

  • St Helens vs Wigan Warriors, Friday 12th July, Totally Wicked Stadium, K.O. 7:45pm.

Wigan hooker Sam Powell expects a thrilling atmosphere when Wigan Warriors travel to face old rivals St Helens on Friday night at the Totally Wicked Stadium (K.O. 7:45pm).

Speaking earlier this week at a joint press conference between the two clubs, Powell reminisced about the highs and lows of playing Saints on their home turf.

He said: “We’ve had some good memories getting some good wins here. We’ve also had some disappointing times where we’ve lost it right at the death. It’s going to be electric on Friday and one I’m really looking forward to.”

On his favourite Wigan wins at the Totally Wicked Stadium, the 27 year-old mentioned two that really stood out for him.

“In 2016 I scored a try here (Totally Wicked Stadium); it was definitely a great feeling and coming away from it I thought I’d played really well. Also, the back end of last year when Lockers (Sean O’Loughlin) scored that try. We’ve had some great memories.”
