Warrington Wolves vs Catalans Dragons
Super League - Rugby XIII - 20h45
The Catalan Dragons are travelling to Warrington. They have nothing more to play because with 4 days to go, they are 8 points behind the 4th, Warrington (a victory is worth 2 points). Last Sunday, they qualified for the Champions Cup final by defeating St Helens. They'll face Warrington in the final at the end of the month!
Two players stand out on the Catalan side. Scrum half Josh Drinkwater, who joined the club at the mid-season, has already scored 7 tries and delivered 14 try assists. He also has a very high foot success rate. He's the top-scorer. The other key player is winger Tony Gigot. He was the man of the game against St Helens. The coaches decided to include many youngsters for this trip. Sam Moa, Louis Anderson, Julian Bousquet, Lewis Tierney, Benjamin Jullien, Tony Gigot, Josh Drinkwater are rested! The team is largely reshaped.
Warrington is 4th and well on his way to qualifying for the playoffs. They can even hope to move up to 2nd place because Wigan has only 3 points more. The coaches decided to rest Stefan Ratchford, Mike Cooper and Ben Murdoch-Masilan. Three important players but Warrington has a better depth of strength. Plus, rookie Thompson will be playing his first game.
A team that has no stakes and comes with a B team faces a team that plays TOP 4. This handicap is too low. Home by 15 at least..
