Joel Tomkins in Wigan Warriors squad

The waiting could be over for Wigan Warriors fans this Thursday – as Joel Tomkins looks set to make his second-debut for the club against Salford Red Devils.

Tomkins has been working his way back to full fitness since signing for the Warriors again last month. But after defeat against already-relegated Bradford last time out, coach Shaun Wane has decided to include Tomkins in his 19-man squad for the game.

The Warriors, who are four points behind league leaders St Helens, also look set to welcome back Anthony Gelling, after he was included in the squad for the clash at the DW Stadium.
