Likely to be a higher than normal injury rate coming out of this derby, and this just the 1st game of the season.
Why do you think that?

What was the injury rate when the season resumed last year after such a long break?
Because its leighs grand final and beating wigan means everything to them...... believe me i know more than most....... they also have a history of pushing the rules to the max when they play us....... that along with a lot of ex wiganers makes it pretty obvious
Yep, all of that plus if they can't beat us on the field with ability other methods might take over, and as a "virtual" Championship side (elevated at the 11th hour) they could easily fall into the "dark" arts and take no prisoners, and especially after 6 months out, the Refs will be rusty and not up to speed, so they could get away with any indiscipline, which has happened before when playing SL sides.
Of course, it's hypothetical at this point but Lam needs to make sure OUR discipline is 100% despite any provocations.
