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.

I think Craig Mullen would be a better option on the wing than Escare. We could also consider playing Hardaker at centre but then I thought he was probably the best of a bad bunch from fullback on Friday.

Probably Hankinson and Partington to miss out. We're really missing Liam Farrell during these tough times.

Mullen was predominantly a fullback in his academy time at Wigan and I believe that's where he played at Swinton. Escare played on the wing for France in the October/November internationals. I agree about Farrell, he's a much underrated/undervalued player.
I think we'll start with Sammutt and maybe Hankinson on the wing with Escare on the bench. Shorrocks and Partington to miss out, although Partingtons aggression (IF he can control it) could be useful!!

Lam’s interview on Wigan TV tells us the side.

Sarginson back which pushes Hankinson out. Davies back in on one wing with Escare or Hankinson on the other.

Sammut to come in and Leuluai to 9. Tautai out giving Navarette a chance to play.

Hardaker, Davies, Gildart, Sarginson, Escare, Williams, Sammut, Flower, Leuluai, Bullock, Greenwood, Hamlin, O’Loughlin. Subs Clubb, Partington, Navarette, Shorrocks/Isa

Shame, I'd have gone along the lines of what Edinburgh Warrior suggested.

Push Gildart to the wing and let Hankinson play centre, otherwise Escare might be facing a night of bombs which he never looks too comfortable with.

He might go with Hanky on the wing and Escare on the bench. Either way, Gildart and Sarge will start at centre.

All the hints suggest Shorrocks will cover the hooking spot from the bench so I guess we’ll see Hankinson and Partington miss out.
