WIGAN Warriors will host Warrington for a place in the Grand Final after St Helens opted to play Catalan Dragons in Super League’s ClubCall.

Shaun Wane’s men will go head-to-head with the Wolves at the DW Stadium for the second time in a month next Friday, the last meeting on September 11 being one of the games of the season.

The Warriors came out 24-20 victors that night after trailing 18-4 at half-time but the prize for victory next week will be much greater than two points with a place in the title decider at Old Trafford on October 11 at stake.

Wigan got to this stage after finishing second in the table and thrashing Huddersfield 57-4 last week in their first play-off match.

However, with the Giants finishing in the top four they were allowed another throw of the dice but stumbled again by losing 16-18 to French outfit Catalan who booked their place in the semi-final.

With last year’s beaten Grand Finalists Warrington progressing from their knock-out match with Castleford though, it left table-toppers St Helens with a relatively straightforward ClubCall decision.
