Toulouse Olympique vs Wigan Warriors: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Toulouse and Wigan have endured very contrasting starts to the season. Whilst Toulouse have yet to win in their inaugural Super League campaign Wigan have won every game thus far.

In fact, the Warriors look like their old solves and appear to be a serious threat to the top of the table once again.

As for the hosts, they’ll be optimistic too after an encouraging display against Warrington last time out but can they shock the Warriors on the back of that?

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 5pm UK time.

There will be no live coverage of the fixture but highlights will be available on the official Super League YouTube channel and BBC’s Super League show.

Predicted line-ups

Toulouse Olympique
For the first time this season season, Toulouse don’t have to contend with a major blow in terms of personnel. In fact they could be boosted by a potential debut to loan signing Ellis Robson. However, such was their strong showing last week I see little in the way of change with Olly Ashall-Bott set to be even more influential at fullback after a strong debut last week.

Wigan Warriors
Wigan have named a strong squad for the trip to France with Bevan French and Ethan Havard also joining the unchanged 21 with a view of featuring against Catalans next week. Neither will feature in this fixture but that doesn’t mean there is an absence of big stories where the Wigan team are concerned. Matt Peet has already confirmed Abbas Miski will make his debut today whilst I can see the likes of Harry Smith also picking up a first appearance of the season as Peet looks to balance his squad with a difficult week ahead.
