Adrian Lam names the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face Wakefield Trinity.
One change in the squad as Jackson Hastings comes in for Jai Field.
Wigan Warriors v Wakefield Trinity, Thursday 1st April, Totally Wicked Stadium, K.O. 6pm.
Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face Wakefield Trinity in Round 2 of the Betfred Super League this Thursday (K.O. 6pm).
The Cherry and Whites will face off against Chris Chester’s men at the neutral venue of the Totally Wicked Stadium as part of a double header. Hull KR and St Helens will go toe-to-toe in the late kick-off of 8:15pm.

Team news

In his pre-match press conference on Monday, the Wigan head coach discussed the chances of Jackson Hastings featuring against Trinity.

He said: “He will more than likely play for us this week.”

Lam also discussed the progress of full back Bevan French, who recently returned from Australia. “We need to get him through the isolation process and get him up to speed with the rest of the squad. We need to make sure welfare wise he’s ready to play and healthy. But it’s great he’s back in the country and we can move forward.”

Injury news

Following news that Jai Field had injured his hamstring following Friday’s game, Lam provided an update earlier this week.

“Sadly we’ve got the news that it’s as worse as it gets. He’s had a complete tear of the hamstring and he’s going to be out for five months plus.

“It’s sad news for the club, Jai and his family and we’ve just got to make sure we get around him and help him through this process. It’ll go fast and he’ll be back soon enough.”

Dom Manfredi is unavailable as he recovers from a fractured thumb. Oliver Gildart misses out with a groin strain.

Liam Marshall continues his recovery from a knee injury sustained in September 2020 v Castleford. The winger is expected to be in contention from May.

I think we need firepower starting in the pack which IMO means Bateman and Isa have to start in the backrow/loose. I think we’re more likely to win this down the middle than outside so I’d look to put Halsall & McDonnell out in the centres and give them an opportunity. It’s going to be a tough day at the office IMO but I still think we have the quality to win.

We really need French and Gildart back, we are not in the middle of an injury crisis (nothing on previous years) but it’s hurting that the main bulk of injuries are in the outside backs and the cover we have isn’t the strongest. With those 2 back we will be miles stronger and obviously even stronger with our 2 first choice wingers.
No disrespect but we’ve been fortunate to get 3 winnable games to start the season, does anyone know if any of these will be back for Leeds? I believe French will be and Marshall is a definite no, anyone know about Gildart and Manfredi?

I agree with the premise of us trying to win the game up the middle but asking kids to defend Tupou and Lyne is asking for trouble IMO. Those two do well against even established SL players.

Can’t throw loads of young three quarters in together, it would be suicide. Just get a workmanlike team out on the field and defend our way to a win.
