Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors squad to face Salford Red Devils this Friday in Round 18 of the Betfred Super League.

The Cherry and Whites will host Richard Marshall’s men at the DW Stadium with the game getting underway at 7:45pm.

The two met once already this season, with Wigan coming out on top at the AJ Bell Stadium thanks to a late Jackson Hastings drop-goal.

Team news

Jai Field is included for the first time since Round 1 after suffering a hamstring injury against Leigh back in March.

Zak Hardaker (neck), Morgan Smithies (ankle) and Ethan Havard (hip) also return from their respective injuries. Liam Marshall is the fifth change, returning after missing out last week against Leigh with a failed HIA (Head Injury Assessment) from the midweek Warrington clash.

Hardaker has been sidelined since Wigan’s defeat to Catalans on 29th May.

Brad Singleton and Oliver Partington have been served with three and two-match bans respectively for Grade C (Punching) offences in Wigan’s win over Leigh last week.

Injury news

Tommy Leuluai misses out with a hamstring injury sustained against Leigh Centurions last week.

Dom Manfredi remains sidelined with a knee injury.

Bevan French continues recovery from a hamstring injury, expected to keep the full back out for the remainder of the 2021 season.
