Wigan Warriors squad numbers: Star man takes John Bateman’s shirt as Bevan French given new number

Wigan Warriors have confirmed their first team squad numbers for the 2023 season.

There are 29 first team players for next year, with Liam Marshall (5), Cade Cust (6), Brad Singleton (8), Sam Powell (9), Willie Isa (11), Liam Farrell (12) and Kaide Ellis (15) all retaining their respective numbers from last season.

New signings Toby King (3) and Jake Wardle (4) have been given their squad numbers.

Following an impressive 2022 in the fullback position, Jai Field will wear the number 1 shirt, with Bevan French – equally as formidable on the wing – taking the number 2 shirt.

After an impressive season where he was awarded the Warriors’ Young Player of the Season, Harry Smith moves up to the number 7 shirt – last-worn by the recently retired Thomas Leuluai.

Morgan Smithies will take the vacated number 13 shirt for the new season, synonymous with so many great Wigan players across the years.

Liam Byrne (10), Ethan Havard (16), Kai Pearce-Paul (17), Joe Shorrocks (19), Brad O’Neill (22), Abbas Miski (23), Logan Astley (24), Alex Sutton (25), Junior Nsemba (27), Zach Eckersley (28)  and Ramon Silva (30) have all been given new squad numbers. Tom Forber (29) also joins the squad.

Since 2008, the No.18 shirt has been awarded to the Wigan Warriors fans as a way to recognise their valued and loyal support and that is no different for 2023.
