Eseh Jr, who turns 21 next week, has spent time on loan at Castleford Tigers this season and will look to get further invaluable game time with Rohan Smith’s side over the next month.

Commenting on the move, Wigan Warriors Transition Coach, John Duffy said: “This is another fantastic opportunity for Sam to get some invaluable minutes on the pitch.

“He will benefit from playing some back-to-back games that will stand him in good stead for the remainder of the season.”
