Warriors hit back at Sydney Roosters 'World Champion' advert

Wigan Warriors are disgruntled with an advertising campaign by the NRL champions claiming to be the 'World Champion.'
The advert is flying high on billboards in Atlanta, ahead of Super Bowl Llll between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.
The Warriors play the Roosters in the World Club Challenge on February 17th at the DW Stadium. Wigan shared a comment:
“Wigan Warriors are aware of the NRL ‘world champion’ billboard advertising campaign in Atlanta, USA, ahead of the Super Bowl LIII,” a club statement read.

“No-one at the Warriors will be making any premature predictions of who will be crowned World Club Challenge champions on Sunday 17th of February at the DW Stadium and as four-time World Club Challenge winners, Wigan Warriors look forward to welcoming the Sydney Roosters to the UK in a few weeks’ time.”
