THE TEAM NEWS
- Wigan Warriors come into this clash with Hull KR on the back of huge loss to Catalans Dragons with that 48-0 defeat at the forefront of their minds during their recent period without a game.
- Last week’s contest with Huddersfield Giants was postponed because of COVID-19 issues within the Huddersfield camp so the Warriors have had plenty of time to dwell on that loss but in their bid to right the wrongs of that showing, they will be without the suspended Zak Hardaker.
20-man squad: Bateman, Bibby, Bullock, Byrne, Farrell, Gildart, Hanley, Hastings, Havard, Isa, Leuluai, Manfredi, Marshall, Partington, Pearce-Paul, Powell, Shorrocks, Singleton, Smith, Smithies
Unavailable: Jai Field, Tony Clubb, Bevan French, Zak Hardaker
Questionable: Oliver Gildart, Liam Marshall, Willie Isa
- Hull KR made it back-to-back wins as they notched 40 points for the second game in succession and they will believe that they can upset Wigan Warriors in this contest on the back of their solid run of form.
- Rovers have won five of their last seven matches but they have suffered some disruption this week with Rowan Milnes going down with COVID-19 so he misses out which offers Mikey Lewis a route back into the fold.
21-man squad: Abdull, Crooks, Hadley, Hall, Johnson, Keinhorst, Kenny-Dowall, King, Lawler, Lewis, Linnett, Litten, Maher, Minikin, Mustapha, Parcell, Quinlan, Sims, Storton, Takairangi, Vete
Unavailable: Elliot Minchella, Ethan Ryan, Rowan Milnes
Questionable: Jordan Abdull, Dean Hadley, George Lawler

However, they come up against an in-form Hull KR who arrive with five
wins in their last seven and they have hit 40 points in their last two
outings. The away side could feel a backlash from the hosts but with
points hard to come by for Wigan so far this season, a low-scoring
encounter should ensue here with no more than 46 points set to be
