Wigan Warriors Coach Stuart Raper has announced the following line-up for Friday's Tetley's Super League clash away to the London Broncos at 8pm -
Shaun Briscoe, Brian Carney, Martin Aspinwall, Sean O'Loughlin, David Hodgson, Nick Graham, Adrian Lam, Terry O'Connor, Terry Newton, Craig Smith, Mick Cassidy, Danny Tickle, Andrew Farrell
Subs - Quentin Pongia, Gareth Hock, Luke Robinson, Kevin Brown
Wigan are without Brett Dallas who has returned to Australia for a short while for personal reasons, Paul Johnson who received a bang in the win over Wakefield and Danny Sculthorpe is still sidelined after a knee operation. Returning at Prop is Craig Smith who has served his one match suspension.
London come into the contest on the back of a 50-8 defeat at Warrington last Sunday, asked about that Coach Stuart Raper said,
"I don't think that result is great for us, they will be disappointed and very hurt and will be looking to make amends. We have trained well this week and it is a very important game for us. We went there last year and it was a good arm wrestle and I am expecting a similar game.We were very disappointed to lose at home to them earlier in the season, especially after being 16-0 up and it's one we want to get back definitely."
