this looks a close physical game but warrington can test the french side.
once again catalans are expected to go pretty well and we know they can be a tough tough side to play in france but the signs were not great in that win over cas. it was a stop start performance with a lot of handling errors and the usual crazy discipline and overplaying in dangerous positions we have come to expect from this side. still there is some terrific attacking options in that backline and on form the catalans can be great to watch.
warrington were very unlucky against the aussies, at least they made it close unlike saints who were hammered, we seen them go toe to toe with a top nrl club and just come up a little short. their defence was outstanding as it has been already in super league and ofcourse we know tony smiths men can play if given a bit of space to attack. its been quiet couple of seasons in terms of silverware so they should be desperate to put that right.
i expected warrington to get a start here even though they are away from home. yes they have to back up after a tough match last week while the french are on a long rest but its early in the season that shouldnt be a problem. i like this bet and expect warrington to win in 80 mins too simply cos their discipline and defence is so much better.
warrington+2.5 with blue at 1.83
