Wolves v Warriors - Head to HeadSaturdayĂs game against Wigan will be a clash of the physical as WiganĂs Hodgson comes up against Westwood, who makes his home debut for the Wolves after scoring 2 tries against London at the weekend against London in Carcassonne, France.Hodgson is a fast and elusive winger who can also play centre and has been an important factor in the Wigan line up this season. Westwood is a speedy and strong runner, who is set for future stardom, brought in to strengthen the WolvesĂ centres which has been greatly effected by injury and players leaving the club.Westwood and Hodgson where recently team mates in the last Origin game at Headingley, Hodgson starting and Westwood on the bench. SaturdayĂs game sees them go head to head with the intention of coming out on top, a clear winner.Westwood has a lot to prove in front of the home crowd, there is a lot of expectation resting on the shoulderĂs of the 20 year old, exűWakefield Trinity Wildcats player. Wolves are in need of points; they stand third from bottom on 6 points while their competitorĂs stand in third position on 20 points. A big difference on paper, but how will they compare on the field.Another physical clash will be that of WolvesĂ prop Nick Fozzard and WiganĂs Terry OĂConnor. OĂConnor is a popular front row forward at Wigan who has proved himself to be a powerful force in their defence. Fozzard has been a consistent player for the Wolves this season ever since he exploded on to the scene after a long period out through injury.The two came up against each other in the recent Origin Series; Fozz for Yorkshire and OĂConnor for Lancashire, both played a physical game with Lancashire coming off the better overall. SaturdayĂs game is a rematch, which will come out on top?
