Friday 9th October, 19:45, Super League Round 15, Emerald Headingley Stadium, Leeds, Warrington Wolves versus Wigan Warriors Match Preview

What should be the best tie of the round sees second-placed Warrington do battle against third-placed Wigan. On the same amount of points as well as points percentage, these two sides have been neck-and-neck all year. The Wolves do, however, come into this fixture on the back of two defeats for the first time all season – ironically both against Salford – which ended a nine-match losing run. Wigan are also on a two-game losing run, having gone down to Leeds and St Helens.
