  • Adrian Lam names the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face York City Knights
  • No changes in the 21 from the side that beat Wakefield last week
  • York City Knights v Wigan Warriors, Fri 9th April, LNER Community Stadium, K.O. 7:45pm

Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face York City Knights this Friday at the LNER Community Stadium (K.O. 7:45pm).

The two sides will do battle in a bid to reach the Betfred Challenge Cup quarter finals, with the bout being broadcast for free via The Sportsman on their website, Youtube and Facebook page.

Team news

Adrian Lam has named an unchanged 21 from last week’s Betfred Super League encounter with Wakefield Trinity.

Earlier this week in his pre-match press conference, the Papua New Guinean provided an update on full back Bevan French, who has begun training with the squad after completing his isolation following his return flight from Australia.

“He’s back in training. It’s day one back on the field with us today. There’s no chance of him being involved at the weekend. 

“He’s ok but he needs a couple more weeks to get up to speed with the rest of the squad and we need to be patient with him.”  

York’s LNER Community Stadium will play host on Friday evening.

Injury news

Jai Field will be sidelined for five months following a hamstring tear sustained against Leigh Centurions in Round 1.

Dom Manfredi is unavailable as he recovers from a fractured thumb. Oliver Gildart misses out with a groin strain.

Liam Marshall continues his recovery from a knee injury sustained in September 2020 vs Castleford. The winger is expected to be in contention from May.
