Isa determined to nullify Wire forwards

Wigan Warriors forward Willie Isa has admitted that his team must stop Warrington's forwards if they are to have a chance of victory.

A victory for Shaun Wane's men will keep the title race alive, but a win for the Wolves gifts them the trophy.

Friday night's clash promises to be another cracker in the Super League but Isa admits his side will struggle if they do not neutralise the Warrington pack.

Tony Smith's team have become the best attacking side in the division and Isa concedes Wigan need to be at their best when they meet at the Halliwell-Jones Stadium.

He told Wigan Today: "I think they're playing well in the middle there. A lot of their team go forward from Hill and he’s their captain and we’ll need to be on our game against him.

"I think everyone knows it goes down to the front rower going forward. With Hill and Simms in there it’s allowing Clark and Ratchford to play a bit more, so we need to take care of their two front rowers and limit the other players as well."
