Wigan Warriors vs Salford Red Devils: 21-man squads, injury news, kick-off time & TV details

Wigan Warriors take on Salford Red Devils in the first Challenge Cup Sixth Round game of the weekend.

Both come into this game on the back of a victory, with Wigan overcoming Castleford Tigers last Thursday and Salford beating Leeds Rhinos comfortably last Friday.

However, with the respite of the Challenge Cup upon us, will the new competition inspire anything different in both sides?
