Rugby League World Cup

Wigan Warriors flyer given opportunity to play against world’s best

If you’re over in Warrington tonight, you’re in for a treat.

The world’s number one ranked international rugby league team are in town and looking to lay down a marker with their World Cup opener against Lebanon.

The Kiwis have some of the best players in the world in their 17 with Joey Manu at fullback and Melbourne Storm star Jahrome Hughes at scrum-half.

Meaning that for the men in the Lebanon side, it is a chance to test themselves against the very best on the planet.

One Super League star will be looking forward to this chance in the shape of Abbas Miski.

The former London winger hasn’t had too many chances at Wigan in 2022 but when he has played has been an attacking threat and he would love to score against the Kiwis tonight having been named on the wing.

Of course, the star of the Cedars team is Parramatta scrum-half Mitchell Moses.

Unfortunately, he comes into the game after losing the NRL Grand Final to Penrith and will be a bit disappointed that he missed out on the Australia squad but this will just leave him with a point to prove tonight as he captain’s the side.

He said this week that if his team can match New Zealand in the effort areas, they could find a win tune in to BBC iPlayer to see if that is the case.

The pressure is on them to step up after Ireland laid down a marker tonight.
