Can't wait for this - will be great to have the RL back and looks like Wigan might be catching Wire at a good time from an injuries point of view.

Intrigued to see how George Burgess goes in SL

First real game of the season, Wire bringing a good team across with around 4k supporters.

We 'should' have 15k+ on for this. Let's hope for a bit more banter between the two clubs on social media going into next week, get the juices flowing.

The team we’ll see won’t be the one I’d pick but pretty sure the 17 will be made up of-

French
Marshall Hardaker Bibby Burgess
Leuluai Hastings
Clubb Powell Flower
Isa Farrell Lockers

Subs
G Burgess Partington Byrne Smithies

Bullock should be in for me but I can’t see it. The make up of the starting pack and bench us the only thing I can see being different (same players but maybe a different run on team).

Crowd-13,400

Score-Wigan 22 Wire 8

I think we’ll get the win in a scrappy game. Wire are as under cooked as us and I expect t home advantage and the better luck we seek to have had with injuries should see us home.

FB 6 French
RW 2 Marshall
RC 1 Hardaker
LC 23 Bibby
LW 21 Manfredi
SO 31 Hastings
SH 7 Leuluai
P 14 Flower
H 9 Powell
P 10 G.Burgess
SR 16 Smithies
SR 12 Farrell
LF 13 O'Loughlin

S 8 Clubb
S 11 Isa
S 15 Greenwood
S 19 Bullock

Close eyes on Clubb and Greenwood. I've got them in there because I know what they are capable of, but if they're average in this one then they're out and Clark/Partington get a shot.

Gells has stoked the fire by saying that Wigan did indeed try to sign him.

Team wise....

French
Marshall
Zak
Bibby (had that left edge link with Hastings and will be the one most likely to drop out when Gilly is fit)
Manfredi
Hastings
Leuluai
Burgess
Powell
Flower
Isa
Faz
Lockers

Smithies
Partington
Bullock
Byrne/Clark

Not too concerned about results at this stage as last year showed.
Crowd lower than it would be on a Friday by 2 or 3k

If you are going to have Marshall and Manfredi on the wings, surely Marshall on the left and Manfredi on the right? Marshall is only on the right to accommodate Burgess?
