Wigan Warriors name 19-man squad for Warrington Wolves game
Stand-off George Williams back in Wigan squad
- Warriors visit Wolves on Thursday 28 April, 8pm
Wigan Warriors have today named their 19-man squad for the First Utility Super League game against Warrington Wolves.
England international George Williams has been named in the squad and looks set to feature for the first time since the game at Hull FC at the start of March.
Jack Wells, a late call-up last week, retains his place in the squad with Dom Crosby and Joel Tomkins the pair to miss out.
Speaking ahead of the game, Warriors Head Coach Shaun Wane said: “It’s great to have George back, it’s been frustrating for him and everyone but he’s back now and good to go.
“He’s had a good couple of weeks with us now. We know what we need to do and where we need to improve. We’ve won a few games recently but not by many points so I’m into the players about making our attack more crisp and having George back will help with that.”
On Warrington, Wane said: “They’ve got some very good players and they’re playing well. They’ve done well with injuries and have had the same team out a lot this year. They’re playing a good brand of Rugby League so it’s got the makings of a great game.”
Wane confirmed that a number of Wigan players are nearing fitness now and that Sam Tomkins took part in his first full session with the team on Monday.
