Emotions ran high last weekend, but it will be nothing compared to this weekend with the final Super League game and a chance to bag a play-off place for first time.
LAST WEEKEND'S GAME WAS A VERY PHYSICAL ENCOUNTER AGAINST HUDDERSFIELD. DID YOU EXPECT IT TO BE?
No not more than any game that we have played this season, I would like to think that Wilderspool is just a tough a place to play as the McAlpine. All teams want to make there own ground a fortress and the Giants are no different than anyone else.
THIS WEEKEND WE TAKE ON WAKEFIELD IN OUR FINAL TETLEY'S SUPER LEAGUE GAME AT WILDERSPOOL, BEFORE WE DISCUSS THE EMOTIONS BEHIND THAT GAME, LET'S FOCUS ON THE GAME. WE PLAYED WAKEFIELD IN THE LAST GAME OF THE YEAR LAST YEAR AT BELLE VUE AND THEY BEAT US. IS THIS A GRUDGE MATCH?
It is fair to say we are aware of the threat that the Wildcats pose and the memory of the final game of last year and our performance at Wakefield this year still linger. The only grudges we have are with ourselves, Warrington players lost their jobs after the final game of last year, because of the way they performed against a side that was desperate to win and we weren't, this a match we are absolutely desperate to win.
Memories are made of this..
Wilderspool nears its end, all have memories of the good times and the bad, a favourite spot to stand on, favourite game to remember but what do the people who currently grace the turf remember most?
1.LEE PENNY: "It would have to be the last home game against Halifax when I scored my 100th try for Warrington in the first 2 minutes of the game. It had become a joke that I would never get there, but I did and that is a moment I will treasure."
3.BRENT GROSE: "It would have to be my first game over here, a trial game pre-season and it was hailing and the wind was hitting us in the back and the wind was howling. I remember looking towards the to the sidelines to see if they were going to call this game off and they carried on playing. Besides that it would have to be the fans they are something different compared to the fans back home."
