Wigan announce 2006 squad and new
kit

Wigan Warriors are delighted to announce their squad and numbers for the 2006 season.

Most notably Sean O?Loughlin will step into the number 13 shirt vacated by brother-in-law Andrew Farrell who left the club in 2005.

Elsewhere, new signings Mark Calderwood and Pat Richards will wear numbers 2 and 3 respectively, while hooker Micky Higham will wear the number 9 shirt. Forward Iefeta Palea?aesina is given the number 10 shirt, Scott Logan the number 8 shirt, and Bryan Fletcher the number 12 shirt.

Bryn Hargreaves and Harrison Hansen have been rewarded for their progression to first team status. Hargreaves will wear the number 16 jersey (was 27), and Hansen has moved from squad number 20 to 19.

Head Coach Ian Millward said:

?I am delighted with our 28 man squad for next season. We have a fantastic mixture of experience as well as a number of quality youngsters. Sixteen out of the twenty eight are local boys. Our squad is bigger in numbers due to our commitment to have more juniors in our top squad.?
