- Adrian Lam names the Wigan Warriors squad to face Wakefield this Friday.
- Jackson Hastings and Willie Isa return from suspension.
- Wigan Warriors v Wakefield Trinity, Fri 23rd July, DW Stadium, 7:45pm K.O.
Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors squad to face Wakefield Trinity this Friday in Round 15 of the Betfred Super League.
The two will meet at the DW Stadium, after doing battle at the Mobile Rocket Stadium last month. Adrian Lam’s men will look to build on last week’s two wins, while Wakefield will hope to get back on the horse after losing to Salford last weekend.
Wigan’s ranks are bolstered by the availability of Jackson Hastings (one-game) and Willie Isa (two-game), who have now served their respective bans.
Sam Powell is also included after missing last week’s win over Huddersfield with a failed H.I.A.
After being a late call-up last week to cover the hooker role, Amir Bourouh misses out.
Liam Byrne is unavailable as he recovers from a rib cartilage injury. The forward also missed out on last week’s win over Huddersfield.
Morgan Smithies again misses out as he recovers from an ankle injury.
Zak Hardaker is unavailable as he continues recovery from a neck injury.
John Bateman misses out with an ankle injury picked up while on England duty in June.
Jai Field remains side-lined with a torn hamstring injury sustained during Round 1 against Leigh Centurions.
Bevan French too continues recovery from a hamstring injury, expected to keep the full back out for the remainder of the 2021 season.
