Wigan Warriors bounced back from opening day defeat by absolutely thumping Wakefield Trinity last week and they’ll look to do the same this week against Castleford Tigers.
Matt Peet has named the squad that is tasked with taking down the Tigers and it sees just one change from the 21-man squad that was named for that Trinity victory.
The change is an enforced one following Joe Shorrocks’ loan move to Leigh Leopards, which was announced yesterday.
In Shorrocks’ absence the young Junior Nsemba is recalled from his loan deal with Championship side Whitehaven.
Nsemba has been with the Cumbrian club on a loan deal but sees a swift recall to Peet’s first team given the departure of utility forward Shorrocks.
That means the squad tasked with facing Castleford features 20 of the same players who were named ahead of the 60-0 victory last week.

Harry Smith will look to replicate the brilliant playmaking that he showed whilst Liam Marshall will be keen to add to his tally, scoring four tries against Trinity after having also crossed over in round one.
This could also be the game where the Field and French show takes off after the pair totalled three tries last week.
