Adrian Lam has made two changes to his Wigan side that lost at St Helens last week. Jack Wells and Ethan Havard come in for Leuluai (back) and Joe Bullock (knee). Bulgaria-born Havard could make his first-team debut for the Warriors.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester has made one change to his outfit that lost to Castleford last time out. Chris Annakin replaces Craig Kopczak (quad).

Tyler Randell could return for Trinity after withdrawing in the build-up to last week’s game.
