WARRINGTON Wolves are getting a visit from the reigning Australian champions today.

NRL premiers Penrith Panthers are in town and will be going up against The Wire in an opposed training session this morning.

It will form part of Penrith’s preparations for their World Club Challenge clash with defending Super League champions Wigan Warriors, which takes place on Saturday evening at the DW Stadium.

"Tough is exactly how Sam Burgess used to play and I imagine that’s how he coaches as well," Panthers full-back Dylan Edwards said ahead of the session.

"I don’t know how they’re going in this competition over here, but I imagine they’d be a tough side."

The session acts as a continuance of burgeoning relations between the two clubs, with Penrith having offered their facilities to Warrington’s academy players for their tour Down Under during the off-season.

For The Wire, they will hope to get plenty out of training alongside and against some of the NRL’s best players as they bid to bounce back from their Round One defeat to Catalans Dragons on Saturday.

The opposed run will form a key part of their build-up to Hull FC’s visit to The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday night in what will be head coach Sam Burgess’ first Super League home game in charge.
