  • Two changes as Tony Clubb and Ben Flower replace Harry Rushton and James McDonnell.
  • Wigan Warriors vs Catalans Dragons, Thursday 15th October, Halliwell Jones Stadium, K.O. 5:30pm.

Head Coach Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face Catalans Dragons in Round 16 of the Betfred Super League.

The two sides will do battle on neutral ground at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones Stadium on Thursday evening (K.O. 5:30pm).

Ahead of the game, The Wigan Head Coach has made two changes to the 21 that faced Warrington last week.

Prop-forward Tony Clubb returns for selection for the first time since the start of March, having been sidelined with a neck injury.

Experienced forward Ben Flower also returns, while youngsters James McDonnell and Harry Rushton miss out.

Injury news

Prop George Burgess again misses out as he recovers from an ongoing hip injury.

Youngster Ethan Havard misses out with an ankle injury. Earlier this week Lam gave more details on the severity of the forward’s ankle issue.

“We’ve got to clarify the extent of the injury. He’s got a high ankle sprain, so we need to find out to what level that could be. It’s between 6-12 weeks as we understand it now.”  

Back-rower Jack Wells remains sidelined following a MCL tear and knee dislocation suffered against St Helens in Round 14.

Winger Liam Marshall continues his long-term recovery from an Anterior Cruciate Ligament knee injury sustained during the Round 10 tie with Castleford.
