Why arent the Warriors playing the Warriors during the club challenge? Dont we have a sister club thingy with each other? Also a chance to bring out another jersey. Thought the club would be all over that...
Yes, our players' sisters are better looking than their players' sisters.
You make a good point - it'd be good to know every off-season we had a pre-season game against Wigan and if we do have an arrangement with Wigan, why not have a system of home and away - Auckland host every even year - as pre-season. Let's face it, Wigan are always going to be part of any World Club Series so if it's held in Australia and even if the Warriors aren't invited (whatever you need to do to get invited, just ask, I assume? Obviously the NRL champs and ESL champs will be there...), it's a good build up for Wigan and would/should make us take it a bit more seriously than we have the two pre-season games this year.
Going to England might be a bit more difficult - going over for just one game isn't logical - so we'd need to arrange games if we're not going to England as part of the World Club Series.
Counter-argument: given the, ahem, quality the ESL teams have shown over this weekend, are we best off sticking with what we do now? That Titans D team from two weeks ago, how would they have fared against those ESL sides??
