THE NRMA Insurance Broncos are expecting a chilly welcome from both the weather and the Wigan supporters tomorrow night.

The Broncos watched in horror at the mud-caked pitch at JB Stadium two weeks ago.

And while the turf has been replaced at the venue for this World Club Series game, that isn't going to do anything to the weather.

Rain and a high of eight degrees celsius is tipped for tomorrow in Wigan, meaning conditions will favour the home side.

As will the boisterous Wigan fans.

"I have heard it is going to be a lot worse weather than it is now on Saturday night, so it is going to be pretty slippery," said Matt Gillett after the Broncos relocated from their London training camp to the north of England overnight.

"We have heard that they have re-turfed the pitch, so hopefully it will be pretty good.

"I have heard that the supporters get pretty loud and get into you a bit.

"So you can't expect anything more than that.

"But I am very much looking forward to the experience on Saturday night."

Gillett said the Broncos had done some work on their opponents who just went down in last year's Super League grand final to Leeds.

Wigan are still undefeated in the new Super League season, so the Broncos expect a tough one as they look forward to their own NRL campaign that begins on March 3.

"We have seen a video of Wigan and they are going pretty good," said Gillett.

"No doubt it is going to be physical and it is going to put us in good stead for the start of our season when we come up against Parramatta."

The match will be televised on 9’s Gem channel on Sunday morning from 5.40am Qld time.
