Sheffield news Wigan Warriors faced with hooking crisis after naming squad for Warrington clash PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - The injuries keep on coming for the Warriors.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Sam Powell is the latest frontline absentee for Wigan Warriors to contend with ahead of Friday's clash with Warrington Wolves. Matt Peet's 21-man squad does not include the hooker, who suffered an injury in the victory over Hull Kingston Rovers last weekend. With captain Tommy Leuluai still unavailable due to his own injury problems, Peet's shortage of senior hookers has been exacerbated by the loss of Brad O'Neill too. He picked up a suspension after making contact with a match official in a recent reserves match, leaving Wigan without any specialist senior hookers. With the likes of Iain Thornley and John Bateman also still out injured, there are call-ups to Peet's 21-man squad for youngsters Junior Nsemba and Harvie Hill.

. There are makeshift options for the Warriors head coach to consider, including half-back Harry Smith, who could deputise at hooker in a move that would allow Bevan French to slot into the halves, perhaps. But with Wigan light on numbers, there will certainly be a significant tactical reshuffle as the Warriors look to keep the heat on league leaders St Helens - and inflict further relegation worries upon the Wire in the process. Wigan Warriors 21-man squad: Bevan French, Jake Bibby, Liam Marshall, Cade Cust, Brad Singleton, Patrick Mago, Willie Isa, Liam Farrell, Morgan Smithies, Kaide Ellis, Harry Smith, Oliver Partington, Liam Byrne, Kai Pearce-Paul, Joe Shorrocks, Jai Field, Abbas Miski, Sam Halsall, Junior Nsemba, Mike Cooper, Harvie Hill.
