Wigan Warriors Head Coach looks ahead to Thursday’s pre-season fixture vs Leigh Centurions.
“It’s another opportunity for us to have a good look at all of our players.” Lam
- Leigh Centurions vs Wigan Warriors, Leigh Sports Village, Thursday 23rd January, K.O. 7:30pm.
Head Coach Adrian Lam has said that he’s looking forward to seeing winger Dom Manfredi return to action on Thursday night in Wigan’s final pre-season fixture vs Leigh.
Manfredi, who has been out injured since April 2019, is in the 23-man squad to face his hometown club.
On the 26 year-old, Lam said, “We are going to play him for 20 or 30 minutes in this particular game. He could have played against Leeds on Sunday but we had a good talk last week and decided that this one [Leigh] was a better fit for him, facing his home town team.”
The Head Coach continued, “He’s in a good place, he’s trained really hard, he’s earned his start and I look forward to his performance.
Thursday evening’s game will give Lam and his coaching staff one last look at his first-team squad before they have to decided on a team to face Warrington Wolves o Thursday 30th January in the 2020 Betfred Super League opener.
“It’s another opportunity for us to have a good look at all of our players.
“We’ve got a pretty big squad with a lot of youth in there and some players we haven’t quite made up our mind with just yet. It’s another opportunity for them to do their best and put their best foot forward.”
