Leigh v Wigan: Predicted line-ups and late injury news

Leigh take on Wigan tonight in the second match of the 2021 Betfred Super League season, but how do we expect both sides to line up?

It will be Leigh’s first game back in the top flight since 2017, with Wigan actually being put to the sword 50-34 that year. To make matters worse for the Warriors, Jackson Hastings and Bevan French both miss out as do Dom Manfredi, Liam Marshall and Oliver Gildart, though new recruit Jai Field could debut. John Bateman is also expected to make his second debut for the club.

Leigh look set to hand a debut to former Wigan winger Lewis Tierney, but ex-Warriors prop Ben Flower is out as are scrum-half Jamie Ellis and centre Junior Sa’u as well as overseas recruits James Bell, Brendan Elliot and Nathan Peats.
