19-man vs Warrington

Adrian Lam names Wigan Warriors 19-man squad to face Warrington Wolves on Friday 15th March

Davies, Greenwood, Partington, Sammut and Shorrocks come into 19

Manfredi, Marshall, Paisley, Powell and Tautai miss out

Wigan Warriors Head Coach Adrian Lam has named his 19-man squad to face Warrington Wolves on Friday 15th March at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (K.O. 7:45pm).


This Friday’s Betfred Super League clash between 2018 Champions Wigan and Warrington will be the first time they have met since last October’s Grand Final.

Wigan head into Friday’s fixture off the back of a defeat to Huddersfield Giants, and Adrian Lam sees this fixture as the perfect way to respond to their slow start to the campaign.

“I think the timing is great for Wigan because it gives us an opportunity to bounce back, play the way we really want to and come away with the win.

“We feel with the last couple of disappointing performances that this is certainly one to get the players up for and have no excuses.” [Read his full preview HERE]

Injuries

Joe Greenwood boosts Wigan’s second row options as he returns from a concussion which kept him out for the last two weeks. Dan Sarginson also returns for selection.

Dom Manfredi will be side-lined for up to three weeks following an injury to his teeth in last week’s defeat to Huddersfield. Liam Marshall also misses out with a knee injury which is expected to keep him out of action for up to 6 weeks.

Sam Powell is the third casualty from last week’s defeat, picking up an ankle injury which is expected to keep him out for 2-4 weeks.

Prop-forward Taulima Tautai will serve the first of his three-match ban following being charged with Grade C - contrary behaviour after appearing to kick out in a tackle during last week’s game against Huddersfield.

Wigan’s 19-man squad to face Warrington Wolves

Joe Bullock, Tony Clubb, Tom Davies, Morgan Escaré, Ben Flower, Oliver Gildart, Joe Greenwood, Gabe Hamlin, Chris Hankinson, Zak Hardaker, Willie Isa, Tommy Leuluai, Romain Navarrete, Sean O’Loughlin, Oliver Partington, Jarrod Sammut, Dan Sarginson, Jake Shorrocks, George Williams.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

I wouldn’t play Shorrocks in this game!

I'd guess that 2 from Hankinson, Partington and Shorrocks will miss out, with the other on the bench. If Sarge is slightly doubtful of lasting 80 mins, could be Hankinson on bench.

Hardaker
Davies
Gildart
Sarge
Williams
Sammut
Clubb
Leuluai
Flower
Greenwood
Isa
Lockers

Navarrete
Bullock
Hamlin
+1

Courageous to say we can beat Warrington with 12 men and have Clubb in the halves but it's better than some of the team selections we've had this year. :D
If we hide Westwood's bus pass and pension book, that should distract them. :twisted:

You've missed Escare off the list
"At Wigan, where I played," Edwards said after Saturday's last leg victory over France. "it was permissable not to be in the line if you had a serious injury or a broken leg. Otherwise you had to be there."

Partington now unavailable after getting a one match ban for "punching" for Swinton v Leigh on Sunday.
