THE TEAM NEWS
- Wigan Warriors were unable to maintain their winning run as they went down to a first loss in four matches with Warrington Wolves getting the better of them in their clash on Thursday but they will believe they can respond here.
- The Warriors were locked in a tight affair but the Wolves were able to capitalise on some poor discipline in the second half to condemn Wigan to defeat but in their bid to bounce back in this contest, John Bateman looks set to return to the side.
21-man squad: Bateman, Bibby, Bourouh, Bullock, Byrne, Clark, Clubb, Farrell, Gildart, Halsall, Hanley, Hastings, Isa, Leuluai, O’Neill, Partington, Pearce-Paul, Powell, Shorrocks, Singleton, Smith
Unavailable: Jai Field, Bevan French, Zak Hardaker, Dom Manfredi, Morgan Smithies, Ethan Havard, Liam Marshall
- Leigh Centurions will return to action for the first time in a month as they go in search of a first victory of the Super League season but their lack of match practice could prove to be difficult to overcome.
- A 48-18 loss to Leeds Rhinos was their 13th consecutive loss so far this season as well as the eighth game in a row in which they had conceded at least 30 points and those defensive issues are likely to be problematic.
19-man squad: Ashworth, Brand, Butler, Elliot, Ellis, Gee, Gerrard, Hellewell, Hood, Ioane, Mason, Mellor, Mullen, Russell, Sa’u, Sidlow, Thompson, Thornley, Wildie
Unavailable: Tom Spencer, Blake Wallace, Ben Flower, Ben Reynolds, Tyrone McCarthy, Ryan Brierley, Lewis Tierney, James Bell
Wigan Warriors fell to defeat against Warrington Wolves earlier in
the week but this is the perfect opportunity to return to winning ways
as they take on bottom side Leigh Centurions. The away side come into
this having not played in a month due to COVID-19 postponements while
they are yet to win a game since their return to Super League. Wigan
still have lots of improving to do but they should be able to ask plenty
of questions of a porous Leigh defence and they can win this one by at
least 18 points.
