Warrington And Wigan Fly The Flag For Super League Against NRL Giants

Warrington Wolves v Brisbane Broncos (Saturday)

Warrington are looking to strike a blow for Super League against the Brisbane Broncos when the sides meet at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Saturday.

Tips Warrington with +16 handicap    Best Bet @ 10 / 11  

Tony Smith's side started their season with a disappointing 20-12 defeat against Catalans. They had chances to take the win from a game which was 6-6 at half-time but the French side, inspired by new signing Greg Bird, finished strongly.

However, Kevin Brown will make his debut for Warrington which should make a difference and Ben Westwood is back after injury.

Brisbane are still a few weeks away from the start of the NRL season so this is essentially a warm-up game for Wayne Bennett's side.

The colder climes of North West England may present something of a shock but the Broncos are favourites for this one at 1 / 4 with SkyBet. Warrington are 9/2 with Betway.

In the handicaps market, Brisbane are evens to win with William Hill at –12. I think Warrington will get a bit closer than that so my pick us Warrington at +16 with Betway.

Wigan Warriors v Cronulla Sharks (Sunday)

The reigning champions of Super League and the NRL clash at the DW Stadium on Sunday to fight for the crown of World Club Champions.

Sunday 19th February - 3.00pm OddsWon/LostBet
Wigan Warriors v Cronulla Sharks    
Tips Wigan +8 handicap    Best Bet @ 11 / 10  

Wigan started their Super League campaign with a 26-16 win at Salford a week ago. They raced into a 26-0 half-time lead before withstanding a strong comeback from the homeside.

Returning winger Joe Burgess scored a try while Oliver Gildart got two. George Williams and Joel Tomkins also scored while Morgan Escare added three goals.

Cronulla's Premiership win last year was their first ever for the club which was established in 1967.

Sunday's game marks their first involvement in the World Club Challenge format and they have sent a strong side to the UK.

New South Wales captain Paul Gallen will lead the 'Sharkies' who boast a strong, mobile pack with dangerous players like Matt Prior and Andrew Fifita.

In the halves, James Maloney is beginning his second season with Cronulla after joining from Sydney Roosters while Chad Townsend is an emerging talent at scrum half.

Wigan have suffered some disappointment in this competition in recent years but I think they can push Cronulla on Sunday and the +8 handicap is tempting at 11/10 with William Hill.

You can get 3/1 on a home win with Cronulla 1/3 through Betfred.
