21-man squad vs Hull FC

Post by josie andrews » Tue Nov 17, 2020 12:05 pm

Adrian Lam names the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face Hull FC.

Two changes as Sean O’Loughlin and Amir Bourouh come into the 21.

Wigan Warriors vs Hull FC, Thursday 19th November, DW Stadium, K.O. 7:45pm.

Head coach Adrian Lam has named the 21-man squad to face Hull FC in the Betfred Super League Semi Final this Thursday (K.O. 7:45pm).

Lam’s men will host the Black and Whites at the DW Stadium in the battle for a place in the 2020 Grand Final.

The fixture will also be Wigan’s first home fixture at the DW Stadium since 8th March, when they beat Hull KR 30-16.

The Warriors head coach has made two changes to the side that faced Huddersfield in Round 20.

Skipper Sean O’Loughlin returns to the 21, having last played against Warrington in early October. He’s joined by young hooker Amir Bourouh.

Injury News

Youngster Ethan Havard continues to recover from an ankle injury first sustained against Leeds Rhinos in Wigan’s Coral Challenge Cup Semi Final defeat.

Back-rower Jack Wells remains sidelined following a MCL tear and knee dislocation suffered against St Helens in Round 14.

Winger Liam Marshall continues his long-term recovery from an Anterior Cruciate Ligament knee injury sustained during the Round 10 tie with Castleford.

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.

Given the lack of news on Powell, I presume it is COVID related, for which I wish him a safe speedy recovery, but in his absence do we presume Tommy to 9 and Smith getting a start at 7?

Not necessarily, he injured his ankle v Huddersfield last game out!

Thats True; I was basing my presumption on the fact he wasn’t mentioned as being sidelined through injury. Either way wish him well.

I know we want O’Loughlin involved as much as possible as he is retiring, still think it could be a mistake playing him.
We are playing well without him and we’re not missing the penalties he gives away

Think Tommy goes to 9 Harry at 7 I'd put Lockers on the bench think he'll be more suited coming on if and when needed than starting

Lockers on the bench instead of G Burgess. At least lockers is versatile & can play anywhere in the middles, forwards & half back come to that! 😊
