Lam reveals squad boost ahead of Castleford clash

Wigan Warriors Head Coach Adrian Lam has revealed some key players will be back in contention for the Warriors this weekend.

The League-leaders were due to be playing Catalans on Saturday but will now face Castleford after the game was postponed due to three Dragons players returning positive Covid-19 tests.

And Lam revealed at his press conference that his squad is boosted by the return of an experienced trio.

He said: “The only players not being considered this week are Oliver Gildart, who is potentially just one week away, Oliver Partington, who is available next round, and Tony Clubb.

“It looks like it may not be good news (for Clubb), it could be long term. Obviously we will need to get clarification on that.

“Tommy Leuluai is back this week, as is Ben Flower and George Burgess. Sean O’Loughlin isn’t going to be right this week so he will be delayed for another week, possibly two.”
