2021 squad numbers announced

Wigan Warriors have announced their squad numbers for the 2021 season. 

Following Sean O’Loughlin’s retirement at the end of the 2020 campaign, the returning John Bateman will wear the famous No.13 jersey, as he prepares for a second spell with the Warriors following a two-year stint with Canberra Raiders in the NRL.  

Other new recruit, Jai Field, has been handed the No.6 shirt, while Bevan French will wear the No.1 jersey after a stellar 2020 season at full back.  

Zak Hardaker has been given the No.3 shirt for his consistent and impressive role at centre in 2020. Other notable changes see Dom Manfredi as No.2, Liam Marshall in the No.5 shirt, Brad Singleton being handed the No.8 jersey and Joe Bullock as No.10.  

Oliver Gildart (4), Thomas Leuluai (7), Sam Powell (9), Willie Isa (11), Liam Farrell (12) and Jackson Hastings (31) are the six players who retain their respective numbers from last season. 

Oliver Partington (14), Morgan Smithies (15), George Burgess (16), Tony Clubb (17), Liam Byrne (19), Harry Smith (20), Ethan Havard (21), Jake Bibby (22), Mitch Clark (23), Chris Hankinson (24), Joe Shorrocks (25), Jake Shorrocks (26), Kai Pearce-Paul (27), Sam Halsall (28), James McDonnell (29), Umyla Hanley (30), Ben Kilner (32) and Amir Bourouh (33) have all been given new squad numbers.  

Since 2008, the No.18 shirt has been awarded to the Wigan Warriors fans as a way to recognise their valued and loyal support and that is no different for 2021, after some amazing displays of loyalty once again from such a large section of our fanbase throughout the testing times of 2020.  

Fans who went the extra mile this year and offered to donate their season ticket credit back to the Club can look forward to seeing their name on display in the new year, with plans to install the Fan Wall within the indoor track area at Robin Park Arena when the players return for pre-season training, while the Fan Appreciation Shirt is now in production and is set to be distributed in line with the start of the new Betfred Super League season in March.
