Rams coach Glenn Morrison admits his side are under no pressure and can go out and enjoy playing against one of the best teams in world rugby, who are Challenge Cup holders and reigning Super League champions.

Morrison said: “We’ve got a good squad and I believe in all the players.

“We did well in the pre-season games against Bradford and Cas, who had Super League players against us.

“Although everyone knows the way the result is supposed to go, we will go out there and give it our best and make sure they know they’ve been in a game.

“The boys are excited about running out against one of the best sides in the world and I am looking forward to seeing how we go.

“Ewan Dowes has won the Challenge Cup but some of our younger players will have never been up against a side of Wigan’s calibrre and it will be up to our senior players to help them through.”

The Challenge Cup will displayed in The Royal Suite at Tetley’s Stadium from 6.45pm this evening but only supporters with tickets for the main stand will be able to gain access to this area of the ground.
