Warriors Made to move Game
Wigan Warriors home tie in the Rugby League end of season play-offs against Bradford Bulls has had to be moved because Wigan Athletic are due to play Sunderland at the JJB the following day
The pitch at the JJB received a lot of criticism last season and Latics chairman Dave Whelan spent heavily having it re-laid during the summer so it is understandable that the tenants wont be allowed to play the night before their landlords.
A message on the Warriors official website reads:
'Due to the non-availability of the JJB Stadium for Friday evening, September 12th, the Wigan Warriors home Play-Offs game against Bradford Bulls will now take place at another venue which is likely to be the Stobart Stadium in Widnes or the Halliwell-Jones Stadium in Warrington`
Wigan Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan is not a happy chappy and he had this to say:
"The players performed extremely well against St Helens on Friday night to earn a home game, strongly supported by the Wigan fans, and we are naturally disappointed that the JJB cannot be made available for our Play-Off game against the Bradford Bulls on Friday night".
"We have explored fully with the RFL the options of playing on Thursday or Sunday but neither is possible for competition integrity issues and we prefer to play on a North West ground of our choice".
"We are looking at all options to facilitate as many of our fans travelling on Friday since we would like to make the chosen venue as much a Wigan venue as possible.'
