Match Preview: Wigan vs Saints – Round 25

Saints travel to Wigan Warriors on Friday (8pm kick off) for a Derby clash which could result in Saints being crowned Super League Leaders'.

BACKGROUND…

Saints travel to the DW Stadium on Friday evening (8pm kick off) to face rivals Wigan for the fourth time this year having faced off twice in Betfred Super League and in the Betfred Challenge Cup Semi Final.
