Coach Looks Ahead To The Wakefield Trip

Wigan Warriors return to engage Super League action this Sunday as they face the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at Belle Vue, 3.30pm kick off.

The good news is that Iafeta Paleaaesina, Gareth Hock and Shane Millard have all been included in the 20 man squad named on Thursday.All three missed the last game against the Catalans Dragons.

Looking ahead to the game, Head Coach Brian Noble told us,

"They are good at home, they are desperate for some points to keep them away from the bottom of the table. We are also keen to kick on, we have shown a lot better application mentally in the last few games and I want a reinforcement of that application because it is a tough place to go for any team. They are looking for the points but so are we as well.

"July is an important month for us because we also face Bradford, Leeds and St Helens. We are excited about the month ahead. Before that though are Wakefield and we cannot afford to look further ahead than that. The reality now is that I now have 22 players looking for spots week in week out."

Brian confirmed the return of Paleaaesina, Hock and Millard for Sunday's clash,

"Paleaaesina and Hock are now fully fit so they both come back into the squad for the game. I have a bit of a headache on a different front because some of the blokes have stood up and been counted. Shane Millard is also back into the reckoning as well."
