Furious Wigan Warriors fans hit out at “disrespectful Aussies” after World Club Challenge comments

Wigan Warriors are set to take on Penrith Panthers in the World Club Challenge and already tempers are high.

Partway through the Super League season and two weeks before the inaugural NRL match, on February 24, the game is reportedly scheduled to take place at the DW Stadium.

This is true even though Wigan advocated for the match to be played in Las Vegas in addition to the first two NRL games.

Following this confirmation, the infamous Mole of Wide World of Sports asserted that Wigan’s home advantage gave them the advantage against Penrith, disregarding the outcome of St Helens’ victory over Penrith in the 2023 World Club Challenge.

The comment, “Wigan were the first team to beat the Aussies in their own backyard and they can do it again,” has really sparked controversy among Wigan supporters.

Another criticised Australians for their disdain of Super League, saying, “They learned a lesson from the Saints.” Every Super League team is disrespected by the Aussies. They are still stealing players. Hopefully, Wigan can give them a match.

One fan, meanwhile, advised Australians to just claim they don’t care when they lose: “They never win because they didn’t play the game with any seriousness.” Don’t attend if they don’t believe the competition is serious.

Many felt that Saints’ success was something that should be acknowleged:

“Unfortunately, Saints put them in their place last year, and I don’t think they will make the same mistake again,” another cautioned. “They can win it like Saints.”

Fans have once again shown their disdain for Australians in Super League, saying things like, “Aussies all said the same when they were playing St Helens and look what happened there,” and “Saints did it last year.” Quite frankly, I fail to see why Wigan cannot this time. The NRL has to stop treating the Super League with such disdain, especially in light of the difference in pay caps between our two leagues.

One irate fan commented, “Comical.” How do they know that Penrith didn’t consider Saints a significant team the previous year? In the end, Penrith didn’t want to lose to an English side and a team from a supposedly worse division in their own backyard.

Additionally, the Kiwis completely destroyed their national team the other week. Australia isn’t always the finest, let’s face it. They simply aren’t capable of losing.
