- Adrian Lam names 21-man squad to face Hull FC.
- One change as Sam Halsall replaces the injured Tommy Leuluai
- Wigan Warriors v Hull FC, Thurs 29th April, DW Stadium, K.O. 7:45pm.
Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face Hull FC this Thursday in the Betfred Super League (K.O. 7:45pm).
Wigan host the Black and Whites for the first time since the two met in the 2020 Betfred Super League Semi Finals last November.
In Monday’s weekly press conference Lam discussed the availability of winger Dom Manfredi, who missed out last week after suffering a setback to an injured hand which has kept him out of action this season.
“He looked like he may have been alright this week, but we feel it’s not something to rush into.
“We’ve got to make sure he’s absolutely right when he plays. We understand just how important he is to us, but we must air on the side of caution.”
Tommy Leuluai misses out after sustaining a sternum injury last week.
Oliver Gildart continues his recovery from a groin strain which has kept him out of action in 2021 so far.
Speaking about the centre earlier this week, the head coach said: “It’s a week-to-week thing with him. He seems like he’s coming into contention, then he has a setback. It’s an injury that’s hard to get on top of and it’s frustrating for us and even more so for him.”
Jai Field remains unavailable after suffering a hamstring tear in Round 1 against Leigh Centurions.
Liam Marshall continues his recovery from a knee injury (anterior cruciate ligament) which has kept him sidelined since September 2020.
