Adrian Lam has named the Wigan Warriors 21-man squad to face Salford Red Devils this Friday in Round 17 of the Betfred Super League.

After last weekend’s bout with Catalans was postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests in the Warriors camp, Lam’s men return to action this weekend, taking on Coral Challenge Cup Final losers Salford after Wigan posted two rounds of all negative tests. (Learn more HERE).

Ian Watson’s side came away victorious last time the two faced off back in March at the AJ Bell Stadium, narrowly pipping the Cherry and Whites 18-14 in what became both club’s final fixture before the national lockdown.


The Wigan Head Coach has made three changes to the 21 that was named to face Catalans (before the postponement), with Oliver Gildart returning alongside Joe and George Burgess.

Youngsters Amir Bourouh and Sam Halsall, along with captain Sean O’Loughlin miss out.

After returning for selection last week, prop-forward Tony Clubb is again available and looking to make his return to action this weekend. The experienced forward has not featured since early March, spending time on the sidelines recovering from a neck injury.

Injury news

Youngster Ethan Havard continues to recover from an ankle injury first sustained against Leeds Rhinos in Wigan’s Coral Challenge Cup Semi Final defeat.

Back-rower Jack Wells remains sidelined following a MCL tear and knee dislocation suffered against St Helens in Round 14.

Winger Liam Marshall continues his long-term recovery from an Anterior Cruciate Ligament knee injury sustained during the Round 10 tie with Castleford.
