Match Preview

Wigan Warriors’ 19-man squad includes just six members of their Challenge Cup-winning team, with youngsters Lewis Tierney, Ryan Hampshire, Joe Burgess, George Williams, James Greenwood and Dominic Manfredi set to get their chance alongside former British and Irish Lions forward Andy Powell, who has made two appearances since switching codes.


Hull FC make four changes to the side that lost to Wigan at Wembley, with skipper Gareth Ellis and props Mark O'Meley and Andy Lynch injured and hooker or half-back Aaron Heremaia suspended. Josh Bowden, Chris Green and Paul Johnson are vying to fill the front-row vacancies while coach Peter Gentle has called up youngsters Dean Hadley and Liam Kent and veteran half-back Richard Horne, who has been out for three months with a foot injury.
