Wolves fight for Grand Final place

A place in this year's Superleague Grand Final is up for grabs for Warrington when they take on Wigan tonight

The Wolves are looking for their third successive trip to Old Trafford when they take on the Wigan Warriors at the DW stadium. 

It's a repeat of last year's Grand Final, where the Wolves let slip a 16 - 2 lead to lose 30 - 16. There were injuries then to Stefan Ratchford and Joel Monaghan. 

Wigan have done the double over the Wolves since beating them at Old Trafford in October but there was little to choose between them when they met in the final game of the Superleague season

Warrington were 18 - 4 up at the break, before the Warriors produced a fightback with remnants of their Grand Final win. 

Wolves Micky Higham said: "We weren't too downbeat about that game," said Warrington's former Wigan hooker Micky Higham. "I thought we did a lot of really good things for long periods of the game.

"If we improve in one or two areas and stay patient, we should get the result.

"There are two really evenly-matched teams. Certainly Wigan are the form team at the moment but we've bounced back from our defeat there and we're in pretty good shape. The lads are buzzing again.

"It should be a mouth-watering clash."

Tony Smith has a selection headache on his hands if Matty Russell has passed a late fitness test. The verstile Ratchford switched from loose forward to full back as Warrington beat Castleford last week. 

Smith said: The Wigan, Warrington games have been as good as games as any or right there up the best, you know what Wigan are going to throw it at you, with their similar sorts of systems and it's going to be hard to beat that.
