Wigan winger Abbas Miski will feature for London Broncos in the Championship this weekend after the two clubs announced a dual-registration agreement.

The Lebanon international will feature in London’s Championship clash at Keighley on Sunday afternoon.

Wigan have formed a strong relationship with the Broncos in recent weeks. Youngsters Harvie Hill, Zach Eckersley and Ramon Silva have already spent time on loan there this season.

The Warriors also have a dual-registration agreement with League 1 club Oldham.

Wigan transition coach John Duffy said: “We have formed a great relationship with London over the past few months on and off the field.

“We have been really impressed with Ramon, Harvie and Zach, the boys have gained some very valuable minutes and they have learned some lessons in life and culture.

“We now have a partnership in League 1 and in the Championship where we can allow our players to develop when we don’t have reserve-grade fixtures.”

Abbas Miski spent the 2021 season with London before making the move to Wigan. He scored 18 tries in 21 appearances for the Broncos.

Matt Peet pleased with Wigan’s win at Castleford

Wigan coach Matt Peet paid tribute to his side’s character after they turned on the style in the second half to ultimately thump Castleford 36-0 on Friday night.

The Warriors led just 6-0 at the interval after in-form winger Liam Marshall scored the first of his three tries.

But the Challenge Cup holders moved through the gears to devastating effect after the break as Ethan Havard touched down from close range before Marshall claimed a superb long-range interception try.

Toby King and Jai Field then added further scores before 26-year-old Marshall went over in the left corner in the closing stages to complete his treble.

Peet said: “It was a very pleasing win and very much the kind of game we anticipated.

“Credit to the players – they managed to weather that early storm. It was definitely the kind of game where you have to defend your goal-line for large parts against some very good attacking players.

“Once we did that, and especially with the enthusiasm we showed, I was confident we could post points ourselves.

“Maximum credit to the players but also to Sean O’Loughlin, who as our assistant coach takes the lead with a lot of our defence.

“To not concede any points for two weeks running, Sean deserves a lot of credit.”

Liam Marshall for England?

Marshall has now scored 103 tries for Wigan and Peet paid tribute to his prolific wideman, who narrowly missed out on selection for last year’s World Cup.

He added: “England have got some good wingers and outside backs, but Liam’s certainly playing very well at the moment.

“He knows what he has to do and all he can do is to keep performing.”
