Sky pundit says there is “bad blood” between Super League sides

Warrington Wolves continued their unbeaten start to the season yesterday when they defeated Leigh Leopards 38-20 but after the opening try there was some pushing and some words exchanged.

This led Sky Sports pundit Phil Clarke to suggest that there is some bad blood between the two sides stemming from a fiery pre-season friendly.

He said of the opening score: “They scored a try of the week and perhaps a try of the season contender and if you want to win the Grand Final you need that ability to go the length but there was a little bit of a fall out from that try. That stems from some bad blood from a pre-season friendly.”

He would later emphasis Warrington’s ability to score from deep:

“Daryl Powell sides have always been good at attacking from their own half but you have to have the pace to capitalise and they do with Daryl Clark and fullback Matt Dufty in support.”

Meanwhile Terry O’Connor praised Warrington’s big men for their role in the club’s turn around this year and it is daunting that they still have Josh McGuire to come back after he was suspended following that pre-season friendly mentioned above.

“I think he has been one of the buys of the year. So strong, so aggressive, along with Sam Kasiano he has really turned this side around.”
