Get Behind the U21'sWarrington Wolves U21Æs take on Widnes Viking U21Æs in the Senior Academy play-offs at Wilderspool on Sunday 24th August kick off 2.00pm. This is a sudden death game, with the losers going out of the competition, the Wolves finished 4th in the table with 32 points, while their opponents Widnes finished just below in 5th spot with 28 points. The Wolves Academy team was put together at the last minute before the season kicked off by Coach Graham Scott. As originally the Wolves were going to run without an Academy team as a cost-cutting measure, until the RFL announced that all Super League clubs had to have an U21Æs team. That team has never looked back after having a few hiccups at the beginning and has proved themselves as one of the better teams in the competition.Coach Graham Scott has announced his team to face Widnes on Sunday:Lee PattersonNick OwenSteve WarburtonRichard VarkulisDave AshtonMike GovinJamie DurbinDanny HeatonShane WilliamsLee GardnerTommy GrundyMike CallanCraig FarrimondPhil BraddishJohn PickersgillSteve PickersgillChris TodRichard Varkulis has been a try-scoring sensation with 27 tries in 21 games; Varkulis has also made the most appearances for the U21s this season, 21 out of 22 matches.

He has made 110 NRL appearances for Illawarra/St George Illawarra since his debut in 1997 against the Souths. ChrisÆs career highlight to date is a Grand Final appearance against Brisbane Broncos in 1999.
