Wigan Warriors have been handed a huge boost ahead of this Thursday’s trip to Hull KR, after former Rovers half-back Blake Green returned to the squad following a serious arm injury.
Green has spent almost three months on the sidelines after a bicep injury, but will return to the fold for the Thursday night trip across the Pennines.
“Greeny is good to play and it’s a huge boost to have him returning to the side after such a spell in the medical room. He has worked hard to get back to fitness and deserves this,” boss Shaun Wane said.
Eddy Pettybourne also returns to the squad after suffering a jaw injury a month ago in 37-16 defeat of Catalan.
Wane continued: “Eddy is back with us too, I had some selection headaches this week and we have some talent not in the squad. It is great competition for the players, which will hopefully improve our performances.”
