FOR the second time since Super League restarted, Warrington Wolves will play at the familiar surroundings of The Halliwell Jones Stadium tonight.

Catalans Dragons are the visitors and when the game does kick off, The Wire will have a proud record to defend.

They have won every home fixture – both at their own ground and on neutral turf when designated as the host side – in all competitions this year.

While there will be no fans present to roar them on against the Dragons, hooker Daryl Clark still believes The Wire will have an advantage.

“It’s obviously different without the fans, but it’s still our home ground,” he said.

“It’s a pitch we’re used to and a place we like playing at.

“I feel there are still benefits to it even without the crowd.”

Friday’s game is the first of three games in eight days, with Super League and Challenge Cup games against Salford Red Devils coming up on Tuesday and next Saturday respectively.

However, Clark says self-preservation will not cross his mind when he takes the field against the French side.

“I’ve not really thought about it, to be honest,” he said of the season’s first midweek fixture.

“I’ll worry about Friday first then see how the body is after that before thinking about Tuesday.

“We’ve got a fit and healthy squad and we’ve seen over the past few weeks that there’s players who are capable of coming in and doing a job.

“I’m not sure what the plan is with rotation and things but we’ve got a big enough squad to cope.”
