Warriors star sets sights on Saints

17th April 2019, 18:41 by Gareth Freeman

Wigan Warriors star Willie Isa is confident ahead of the visit of Super League pacesetters St Helens on Good Friday.

Saints lead the way after picking up nine wins in their opening 10 games, while defending champions Wigan are languishing in 10th spot after just three wins so far.

Isa says form will count for little in the huge clash on Friday and he is convinced Wigan can come out on top.

"It's a game that's a one-off," he told the club website. "No form going into it seems to matter. It's one game, that's it, there you go. History has show that it's us versus them and I like that fact.

"I like the mentality of a derby game, two towns going at it, and I like the fact that I'm in the Wigan side."
