Challenge Cup holders’ Wigan Warriors are set to travel to Whitehaven to face the Championship side in their first pre-season game with a very young squad that’s primed to gain levels of experience.
Plenty of youth will make the trip to Cumbria in a team that will be led by Academy Head Coach, John Duffy.
As such plenty of academy and young prospects will travel to the Recreation Ground to get minutes under their belt.
The club released the squad via their Twitter and website.
“John Duffy has named the youthful side as the Warriors will field some of the promising talent from the Academy set-up, as well as a number players who were promoted to the first team set-up for 2023 including Harvie Hill, Jacob Douglas, Junior Nsemba, Tom Forber and Zach Eckersley”
