Toulouse Olympique vs Warrington Wolves: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Getting promoted to Super League is all about the big occasions against the biggest teams. So, Toulouse will certainly be looking forward to welcoming the Wolves despite the challenge they pose.

Things might be a little less difficult now for Toulouse with the French side signing livewire Olly Ashall-Bott this week. A positive boost following the departures of Johnathan Ford and Mark Kheirallah, they’ll be hoping to use that to springboard into this clash.

As for the Wolves, they’ve not been perfect in the opening two rounds but still have two wins against two play-off rivals and will be hoping to maintain their momentum.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 5:00pm UK time.

There will be no live TV coverage but highlights will be uploaded to Super League’s YouTube channel.

Toulouse Olympique
Olly Ashall-Bott may have only just signed for Toulouse, but with Joseph Paulo unavailable meaning Tony Gigot will be needed in the halves, he could be handed an immediate debut at fullback. They are also without James Cunningham now meaning Anthony Marion will likely come into start at 13. Fortunately, they’ll have some size in their side with Gadwin Springer back.

Warrington Wolves
As with Toulouse, Warrington have a huge boost with the return of Daryl Clarke after concussion protocols kept him out of the win over Castleford whilst Mike Cooper is also back. This means we could see the strongest Warrington side we’ve seen all season. Their return does mean we should start to question how Daryl Powell will line up his side especially in the pack. Rob Mulhern has started the campaign well so most likely will remain in the starting line-up with Joe Philbin dropping to the bench as he did in Round One. Meanwhile, Jack Hughes could return to the first 13 after overcoming his injury and starting on the bench last week, this could certainly be timely with Ben Currie out through an ankle injury whilst Oliver Holmes is still suspended.
