Adrian Lam is already looking forward to the tie.

“York is my favourite place in the UK, I follow the York City Knights just because I love the town," he said.

“They’re a club on the up over the last couple of years, they play some great rugby, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Wigan's game is one of three being screened for free, with the other two on the BBC. The RFL is showing the other five matches via their OurLeague website, but fans will have to pay £4.95 for an early bird ticket, or £10 on the day, with money split between the two clubs involved.
