Wigan Warriors’ forgotten signing set to star against Leeds Rhinos

Wigan Warriors’ forgotten signing is set to debut against Leeds Rhinos in the Challenge Cup.

The prodigal son has returned with former Warrior Ryan Hampshire making his second debut for the club in the halves ahead of Cade Cust.

Hampshire was at Castleford Tigers last season before suffering a nasty injury that ended his season.

The Tigers worked closely with him in rehab and the versatile Hampshire ended up returning home.

Joe Shorrocks moves to 13 with Morgan Smithies shifting to the back row.

Meanwhile, Liam Marshall is back in the side on the left wing to give the Warriors added strike power.

Leeds Rhinos have suffered a massive blow with stand-off and key man against Wigan Warriors last week Blake Austin absent.

Making matters worse, Ash Handley is also absent for the Rhinos.

This sees Richie Myler return to fullback with Morgan Gannon moving into the halves, where he played a lot in pre-season.

With James Bentley and Zane Tetevano out, Rhyse Martin has been called upon to start in the backrow with James McDonnell as Derrell Olpherts returns to start on the wing allowing Nene MacDonald to start at centre.

Expected Wigan signing Sam Walters is 18th man.
