Jon Wilkin and Phil Clarke say Warrington have proved nothing yet this season

Sky Sports pundits Jon Wilkin and Phil Clarke believe Warrington have proved nothing so far this season.

That’s despite the Wolves winning all eight of their games in Super League, including last weekend in the South of France against Catalans.

However, the duo were still unsure on if the Wolves are serious contenders in 2023 having not played St Helens or Wigan yet this season, their two opponents over the next two weeks – with them facing the latter this evening.

Ahead of the game against the Warriors, Wilkin said: “We are all speculating about Warrington, questioning how good they are but the truth is we don’t actually know.

“They play the three best teams in the competition over the next three rounds and we’ll find out how good they really are.

“We have seen them on the front foot in every game this season, the forwards like Paul Vaughan have been dominating all their opponents.

“Tonight they won’t be on the front foot all the time though, so that is the test, how will they cope when one of the best teams in the competition put it on them.”

Following up Wilkin’s comments, Clarke said: “I think everybody is keen to know how they will cope with Wigan. Last season they played Wigan here and there was a similar build up.

“What happened that night though was Wigan scored early and put 40 points on them, and that set the tone for the rest of the season.

“Let’s see if they react different tonight and over the course of the rest of the season.”
