Sky Sports’ Barrie McDermott talks about the key players that could decide the World Club Challenge between Wigan Warriors and Sydney Roosters

Barrie McDermott believes success or failure in the World Club Challenge could rest on the performances of the respective half-backs for Wigan Warriors and Sydney Roosters.

Roosters’ highly-influential Cooper Cronk has been passed fit after undergoing shoulder surgery, having led his side to NRL Grand Final success despite playing with a fractured left scapula.

Wigan will look to stand-off George Williams to play a crucial role for the home side and offer key support to new signing Zak Hardaker, a player McDermott believes will also have to play at the top of his game if Adrian Lam’s side are to emerge victorious on Sunday – live on Sky Sports.
