All eyes on Saturday will be on likely debut-maker Greg Inglis – Warrington’s latest marquee signing from Australia
The ex-South Sydney Rabbitohs’ star, above, who has 39 caps for Australia, is reportedly match-fit and ready for his comeback game.
Toby King, the club’s top try-scorer with four this season, is 2/1 to cross the white line first, or 6/4 to score anytime.
It was a bit of a stop-start performance from the Wire against Catalans at the weekend, with Blake Austin not figuring at all in the 24-8 victory in France.
Coach Steve Price now has a huge dilemma about whether Austin returns on Saturday, and indeed whether to start new boy Inglis.
But as all coaches in all sports will say, that’s a decent headache to have – although the key is to find a way of keeping the whole camp happy.
Warrington, bolstered by the win in Perpignan, need to keep on the winning trail with great rivals St Helens and Wigan making 100% starts to the Betfred Super League season.
Meanwhile, in the football world, my team United have a great chance to redeem themselves after the European Super League debacle when they take on Roma in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final tonight.
It was a shame that the Reds couldn’t pick up three points at Leeds on Sunday – and it’s now looking a distinct possibility that City could be crowned Premier League champions this weekend. After tonight’s clash with Roma, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys host Liverpool on Sunday.
If we lose that, and City beat Crystal Palace 24 hours earlier, then it is the Blues who will lift the Premier League trophy.
Finally, my congratulations go out to a college worker from Hertfordshire who won £4,219 at Betfred with an 11p Goliath.
He successfully predicted the results of EIGHT English and Spanish matches, and now he plans to celebrate by taking his wife to a top hotel in London for a slap-up meal.
He fell asleep during the afternoon of the matches, and when he woke up he realised that Nottingham Forest had equalised against Birmingham in the 98th minute to ensure his brilliant bet was a winner!
