Adrian Lam names the Wigan Warriors squad to face Wakefield this Friday.
Jackson Hastings and Willie Isa return from suspension.
Wigan Warriors v Wakefield Trinity, Fri 23rd July, DW Stadium, 7:45pm K.O.
Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors squad to face Wakefield Trinity this Friday in Round 15 of the Betfred Super League.
The two will meet at the DW Stadium, after doing battle at the Mobile Rocket Stadium last month. Adrian Lam’s men will look to build on last week’s two wins, while Wakefield will hope to get back on the horse after losing to Salford last weekend.

Team news
Wigan’s ranks are bolstered by the availability of Jackson Hastings (one-game) and Willie Isa (two-game), who have now served their respective bans.

Sam Powell is also included after missing last week’s win over Huddersfield with a failed H.I.A.

After being a late call-up last week to cover the hooker role, Amir Bourouh misses out.


Willie Isa in training.
Injury news
Liam Byrne is unavailable as he recovers from a rib cartilage injury. The forward also missed out on last week’s win over Huddersfield.

Morgan Smithies again misses out as he recovers from an ankle injury.

Zak Hardaker is unavailable as he continues recovery from a neck injury.

John Bateman misses out with an ankle injury picked up while on England duty in June.

Jai Field remains side-lined with a torn hamstring injury sustained during Round 1 against Leigh Centurions.

Bevan French too continues recovery from a hamstring injury, expected to keep the full back out for the remainder of the 2021 season.

I'd go with Hanley at FB and put Leuluai on the bench replacing O,Neill
We both know that Clubb will get a place therefore, either Bullock or Clark will miss out.
I quite like Shorrocks and would like to find a place for him but perhaps a good opportunity for a well earned break.

Gone with Hastings due to Lam confirming in the WEP that he will be at fullback. You’re right on Clubb and I expect he’ll start and Havard will drop to the bench in place of Bullock. I wouldn’t mind seeing Amir Bourouh again from the bench but we’ll see.

In fairness to Big Tony Clubb, he is sitting on a 100% record this season. He’s played 6 and won the lot. I’d say he’s won them almost single handed as well.

Surprising what two good results can do for a side.

I thought Hanley has stepped up well and Halsall did well last week too. That being said, Hastings always walks back into the side.

I'd probably rest Smith, simply because Tommy has been ok & probably shades him in terms of performance. Same with O'Neil.

I read something the other day where he said he wanted Hastings, Field and Leuluai all starting.

He’s confirmed to Phil Wilkinson that Hastings will more than likely play at fullback.

He’s a bit weird is Lammy. He seems to have no trust in young backs, yet is happy to play a mountain of young forwards, even though the pack is probably a tougher place to play on a regular basis as a junior.

I would probably have gone with Hanley as he gives us a bit of pace that we're lacking at the moment. But I guess there is an argument that Harry Smith needs to play if he's going to be an automatic starter next year and I don't think you should play Hastings and Smith together if you have the choice given they're both left sided players.
