Gelling and Tomkins Return

  • Wigan Warriors name squad for away fixture against Castleford Tigers

  • Joel Tomkins and Anthony Gelling return to 19-man party

  • Young hooker Josh Ganson replaces injured Thomas Leuluai

Wigan Warriors have made three changes to their 19-man squad for Saturday’s trip to the Mend-a-Hose Jungle to face table toppers Castleford Tigers.

Joel Tomkins and Anthony Gelling return from injury and suspension respectively to replace youngsters Joe Bretherton and Liam Forsyth.

Shaun Wane may look to switch either Sam Powell or Sean O’Loughlin to scrum half in the absence of Thomas Leuluai who suffered a broken jaw against the Dragons.

The reshuffle could mean Wane also hands a debut to under 19s hooker Josh Ganson.

The Warriors head into the game looking for a fourth successive win following Easter victories over St Helens, Wakefield and Catalans.

Wigan Warriors 19-Man Squad

Joe Burgess, Tom Davies, Morgan Escaré, Liam Farrell, Ben Flower, Josh Ganson, Anthony Gelling, Nick Gregson, Willie Isa, Liam Marshall, Michael Mcilorum, Romain Navarrete, Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Powell, Ryan Sutton, Taulima Tautai, Joel Tomkins & George Williams.
