Warrington Wolves “on course for a sell-out” in top of the table clash

Spirits at the Halliwell Jones have well and truly been turned around from the lows of last season to the current high of eight consecutive wins.

Fans may have been questioning the appointment of Daryl Powell last season after the club found themselves placing the lowest they ever had in Super League.

That 11th placed finish was the culmination of a terrible season in which they found themselves in a potential relegation battle with Toulouse at times.

Heading into the off-season they led the way with recruitment as they made plenty of early signings including some real quality such as Paul Vaughan and Josh McGuire from the NRL.

As well as their NRL duo they also recruited three from Catalans in the shape of Josh Drinkwater, Sam Kasiano and Gil Dudson.

Paired with a new season, a new captain in Stefan Ratchford and the coaching ability of Powell the Wire are a side that have become an absolute force this season.

On opening night they headed into the sheds at half-time 30-0 up against Leeds and they’ve built upon that weekly.

The culmination was their most recent win over 2nd place Catalans Dragons in Perpignan, despite going down to 12 men.

They now have another 1st vs 2nd clash this week as they welcome Wigan to the Halliwell Jones and the fans have done their bit already.

The club have tweeted that less than 1,000 tickets remain across the three home stands and they’re well on their way to a sell-out and a potential record crowd.

This comes a week after the record attendance for a round of Super League fixtures, with over 80,000 watching the six games of round eight.

Should Warrington win and make it a perfect nine in a row then the Halliwell Jones may continue to fill up to these huge numbers.
