Warriors and Wolves announce squads

Wigan aim to secure their first back-to-back victory of the season on Friday and hope for favours from Hull and Leeds as they seek to further close the gap on engage Super League leaders St Helens.

Victory in the majority of their seven remaining home games is the minimum requirement if Brian Noble?s men are to pull off the great escape and Hull and Leeds can help their cause when they host their nearest relegation rivals Castleford and Wakefield.

However, there will be no re-appearance of long-term favourite Kris Radlinski, who is rested after making a comeback against the Catalans.

?His knee is a bit sore,? said Noble.

?We have to look after him properly and he won?t feature until next week.

?The reality is he jumped from 15 months of doing nothing into the fray. We need to manage the injury properly if we are to get the maximum out of him for the rest of the year.?
