Warrington v Wigan: 21-man squads, injury update and TV details

Warrington and Wigan have both announced their 21-man squads for Wednesday night’s round 16 clash at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (KO 7:45pm).

The Wolves are finally back in action after having two games postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak within their camp.

Before that, they claimed four straight wins, including a 40-14 victory over the Warriors, before being humbled by a 22-16 loss to Leeds at the start of July.

Wigan, meanwhile, have shrugged off the poor form which saw them lose five consecutive matches, with wins over Huddersfield twice and Wakefield in their last three.

This will, however, be their toughest test since the defeat to St Helens three and a half weeks ago.

The game will be available to watch live on Sky Sports Arena, with coverage starting from 7:30pm.
