Warrington Wolves break 16-year record ahead of Leeds Rhinos game

Warrington Wolves fans have launched their support behind their new head coach Daryl Powell ahead of their fixture away at Leeds Rhinos on Saturday afternoon.

The fixture will be the first ever broadcast on Channel 4 with a kick off at 12.30pm in front of what is expected to be a massive crowd.

And, contributing to that massive Headingley crowd will be almost 2,000 Warrington supporters.

1,600 have picked up tickets for the Rhinos away fixture, making it the biggest away following from Wire in 16 years.

It will mark Warrington head coach Daryl Powell’s first game in charge of his new club with Joe Bullock, Oliver Holmes and Peter Mata’utia expected to debut.

Powell took over the reins from Steve Price who left after four years at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, whilst Powell himself had been at Castleford Tigers for almost nine seasons.

Meanwhile, Leeds boss Richard Agar will likely give three debuts to David Fusitu’a, Aidan Sezer and James Bentley as Blake Austin has to serve a one-match suspension following the Rhinos’ victory over Hull FC in Tom Briscoe’s testimonial.
