The Warriors will face Super League rivals Salford as well as Championship side Barrow Raiders.
Wigan fans will get their first chance to see new signings Ryan Hoffman, Jeff Lima and Brett Finch at the Willows on Sunday 16th January with a 3pm kick off against Salford. The following Sunday, 23rd January, a Wigan Under 20's side will travel to Barrow for a 3pm kick off in Brett McDermott's Testimonial match.
Speaking about the fixtures Head Coach Michael Maguire said,
"These pre-season games are very important as we continue our preparations towards the start of the 2011 season. Salford will provide us with tough Super League opposition while the clash at Barrow is a good opportunity to look at the whole of our first team squad and 20's players in competitive action."

The Raiders playing a "World U 20's" would still be one sided.
Why not send 6 or 7 1st team players and make the rest fron the U 20's squad.

It isn't something the club has arranged.
Still, it would have been nice to see some of their first team in action!!!!
It may still happen.
