We’ve had some big games this week but Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves was always going to be the biggest of the bunch despite Leeds Rhinos vs Hull KR and St Helens vs Catalans Dragons.
It it always a huge game between two bitter rivals and it has been amplified lately by the fact the two clubs are gunning for success and have been competing with each other for 13 years.
What added to this one was the fact it was fourth vs fifth on the ladder. The victor would in many ways cement their top six standing and keep themselves in the fight for the top two but the loser would put their play-off hopes in peril.
The difference between fourth and fifth in the league is quite pronounced in the play-offs as fourth get a home play-off game and fifth aren’t so fortunate.
A massive game and there were some twists and turns before kick off with Daryl Powell forced to leave out star man and former Wigan halfback George Williams as he battles back from a hamstring injury.
However, even after the game, Williams’ story wasn’t complete.
One fan took a shot at Williams for being pictured laughing by the Sky Sports cameras.
He called for Williams and Powell to leave on Twitter saying: “Sky sports showing George Williams laughing… I’d say go and take Powell with you.”
This prompted a harsh response from Williams who said that the fan had asked for his picture and called for him to be honest with him in person next time.
He said: “You asked me for a picture after the game… should of kept the same energy as your tweet in person but you never. #keyboardwarrior”
This came after his former teammate Sam Tomkins and the man Williams replaced as England skipper had a bold statement to make about the halfback.
He claimed the only way Warrington could win Super League was with a fit George Williams.
The Wolves now have a week off due to being out of the Challenge Cup at the hands of Wigan no less.
Thus, Williams will be ready for Round 20 you would expect.
