It should be interesting seeing Wood and McCarthy up against Dowes, Thackray and Lupton for Town (all Town players). We have one DR player from Widnes playing - Declan Hulme - at present time from the 3 players offered.
The thing about the Wood and McCarthy listed in the Swinton squad is that there is at least another 5 Warrington players named in their 19 man squad, so it will be interesting to see which 5 dual reg and/or loan players they play. They can't play them all.
Veteran Warrington prop Paul Wood will line up for Swinton against Workington at Leigh Sports Village on Sunday 3pm.
He's joined by Super League team-mates Tyrone McCarthy and JamesLaithwaite as three dual registration players in the Lions 19-man squad for the opening game in the Championship.
It will be Wood’s first competitive game after surgery on an injury he got in Warrington’s Grand Final defeat to Leeds Rhinos in October.
He returned to action in Warrington's friendly against Widnes on Boxing Day.
Loose forward McCarthy, 25, has spent three seasons with the Wolves which has included spells with Wakefield and Leigh.
Back-rower Laithwaite, 21, came through the Warrington academy and spent most of last season on dual registration at Leigh.
The squad includes nine new signings and seven players returning from last season.
Swinton’s 19-man squad to face Workington (with squad numbers).
