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

After back-to-back wins over Huddersfield, Wigan will be looking to establish some real momentum against Wakefield tonight. The Warriors recently lost to Wakefield so very well could have something to prove against a Trinity side coming into the game off the back of defeat to Salford.

Wigan should have a much more experienced 17 this week. The Warriors welcome back talisman Jackson Hastings who’ll likely fill the hole at fullback despite the objection of plenty of supporters. Willie Isa is also back from a ban and could slot in at centre. Other than that, the Warriors should remain relatively the same other than the absence of Liam Byrne through a rib injury.

As for Wakefield, they also welcome back some senior stars who could make them a more formidable foe. Both Ryan Hampshire and Alex Walker are back vying for the fullback spot. Meanwhile, Kyle Wood’s return should solve the problems Trinity are suffering at nine. Other than that, like Wigan, Wakefield should remain largely the same as both sides look for much needed continuity.
