Super League match preview: Warrington Wolves v Bradford Bulls
Last Updated: 28/04/13 2:15pm
Warrington Wolves could name two debutants when they face Bradford Bulls in Sunday's Super League clash at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Second row Danny Bridge and prop Glenn Riley are set for their top-flight debuts after they impressed in Wolves' 74-4 victory against Keighley in the Challenge Cup last weekend.
Ryan Atkins retains his place in the Wolves squad after scoring four of the thirteen Warrington tries last weekend.
Despite facing a Bulls side who have won only two of their last five Super League encounters Wolves coach Tony Smith is not taking the opposition lightly.
"Bradford have had a strong start to the season with a good response to Francis' [Cummins] coaching," he said.
Bradford welcome experience back to their 19-man squad with Brett Kearney, Elliot Kear, Nick Scruton and Matt Diskin all included after sitting out of the Challenge Cup victory against Rochdale.
Prop Ben Evans did feature in last week's 70-10 mauling away to the Championship 1 side and retains his place as he looks set to make his Super League debut against his parent club.
Meanwhile, centre Matty Blythe could also have the opportunity to take on his parent club having recovered from a neck injury.
As the hosts sit third in the Super League standings Bulls coach Francis Cummins knows his side have a strong challenge ahead.
"The experience they have got and their recent Grand Final and Challenge Cup appearances shows they know how to win," he said.
Warrington Wolves: Atkins, Bridge, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Myler, Ratchford, C. Riley, G. Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.
Bradford Bulls: Donaldson, Sidlow, Kearney, Manuokafoa, Gale, Kear, Scruton, Bateman, L'Estrange, Purtell, Lulia, Whitehead, Diskin, Sammut, Addy, Olbison, Walker, Platt, Evans.
