Carney Returns for Warriors

GB winger Brian Carney makes his return for Wigan, while ex-Warriors Mark Smith, Gary Connolly, and Terry O'Connor line up for Widnes in Friday's crunch derby at the JJB Stadium.

Speaking about the return of Carney, Coach Denis Betts said, "He has been unlucky this year, touch wood now everything is alright, he has worked hard, he looks sensational. His work ethic is second to none and he deserves some luck.The enthusiasm he has will hopefully filter through to the rest of the lads. He will go straight onto the wing and partner Martin Aspinwall."
