Wigan’s Williams linked with Catalans move

Wigan Warriors v Castleford Tigers

Wigan Warriors playmaker George Williams has been linked with a move to Catalans Dragons in today’s edition of the League Express.

Current Warriors full-back Sam Tomkins is heading to Perpignan next year, linking up with ex-Wigan hooker Micky McIlorum and potentially Anthony Gelling too.

If Williams moves to Stade Gilbert Brutus, it will only add more fuel to the fire surrounding the future of Wigan boss Shaun Wane who is leaving the club at the end of the season.

Williams is currently ruled out of action for up to six weeks after suffering a knee injury in the Warriors’ victory over Hull FC.

The stand-off has made 17 appearances for the Cherry and Whites this term, scoring five tries.

The League Express have also reported that Catalans have Tommy Leuluai in their sights too but Williams looks to be the main target for the French club.
