SUPER 8S PREVIEW: Wigan v Hull FC

Wigan are finishing the season strongly, and Shaun Wane names an unchanged squad from the one which defeated Catalans at Millwall last weekend.

The Warriors will go level on points with Leeds at the top of the table should they beat the Airlie Birds.

Hull coach Lee Radford has to contend with a cripplingly long injury list, and has been compelled to turn to youth.

Players such as Masimbaashe Matongo and Ross Osborne are in line to make their Super League debuts.

Wigan Warriors (19-man): Bateman, Bowen, Burgess, Charnley, Clubb, Crosby, Flower, Gelling, Gildart, Manfredi, McIlorum, Mossop, O’Loughlin, Patrick, Powell, Smith, Tautai, Tomkins, Williams.

Hull FC (19-man):
Abdull, Downs, Fash, Hadley, Houghton, Lineham, Logan, Matongo, Minichiello, Naughton, Osborne, Paea, Palea’aesina, Rankin, Shaul, Sneyd, Turgut, Watts.

Stats:

Matty Smith needs one appearance to reach 100 for Wigan. Smith made his Warriors debut as a substitute in a 52-10 win at Wakefield on 8 July, 2012.
