Warriors name 19-man squad for first home game of 2018

Joe Burgess recalled to the squad

Wigan face Widnes in first game at the DW Stadium in 2018
Wigan Warriors have today named the 19-man squad for the first home game of 2018 when they take on Widnes at the DW Stadium on Friday.
It’s third versus fourth as Denis Betts’ Widnes side visit the DW buoyed by their recent win over Leeds.

Joe Burgess is recalled to the squad and takes Craig Mullen’s place in the squad. Dan Sarginson (shoulder) remains sidelined.

Wigan return to the DW Stadium for the first time since September and will look to return to winning ways having beaten Salford and Hull in the first two games of the season.

Wigan Warriors 19-Man Squad
John Bateman, Joe Burgess, Tony Clubb, Tom Davies, Morgan Escaré, Liam Farrell, Ben Flower, Oliver Gildart, Willie Isa, Tommy Leuluai, Liam Marshall, Romain Navarrete, Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Powell, Ryan Sutton, Taulima Tautai, Joel Tomkins, Sam Tomkins, George Williams.

So he more or less said Navarette is getting a run, I wonder who drops out. Sutton, Tautai and Isa would seem most at risk. I've not been a fan of Joel but thought he looked dominant defensively v Wire.

Escare
Davies Farrell Gilly Burgess
Williams Tomkins
Flower Tommy Nararette
TT Joel
Lockers
-----------------
Powell Bateman Clubb Sutton


Creative team!

Always wanted to see Faz tried at centre, good size for the position, good hands and seems faster than the likes of Bateman.
Escare to play 80 at fb, Sam to play 80 at SH. Only change positionally is Powell coming in at 9 for Tommy. Keeps consistency in key positions.
Really like to see TT as a SR. Get him running further out wide at smaller men. He's a big athletic lad, I believe this could be his position.

Bateman for Lockers. But, when Lockers returns keep Bateman on. Lockers to come on for another player/forward. Lockers can come on for a prop etc. Between Lockers and Bateman we can cover pretty much everywhere on the pitch bar wing/FB.

Time Joe Burgess had a good run in the team. Time to get fit and back to his best.

Interesting selections, but it's made me realise more than ever that it's time this club acquired a pair of decent centres from somewhere.

I admit I purposely tried to be creative. But I'd honestly like to see Faz given a run a centre and TT in the SR.

Do you think Tautai is quick enough to defend at second row, and fit enough to stay on for the amount of time they play? I don't, and would look at dropping him if Navarette is doing as well as Wane indicates.
