Wigan Warriors team news for trip
to Bradford Bulls
The Warriors side is as follows -
Shaun Briscoe, Brian Carney, Sean O'Loughlin, Martin Aspinwall, David Hodgson, Nick Graham, Adrian Lam, Craig Smith, Terry Newton, Terry O'Connor, Mick Cassidy, Gareth Hock, Andy Farrell Subs: Danny Tickle, Luke Robinson, Danny Sculthorpe, Kevin Brown
Carney and Sculthorpe return to the squad after injury, Brian has had a hamstring injury while Danny has been suffering with a shoulder problem, Paul Johnson again misses out having not recovered from his hamstring problem.
The Bulls have beaten Wigan twice already this season in the Challenge Cup Semi-Final and more recently at the JJB Stadium 14-8 in the League, looking ahead to Saturday's trip to Odsal, Coach Stuart Raper said,
"They have beaten a few times on the bell, I think we have been a bit unlucky, Bradford are a very good side, they are very well drilled, they do know how to win a game but we are going to go there with no fear. "
"I think sometimes they can intimidate a side before you even turn up for the game. We will give them plenty of respect but we are quietly confident we can go out there and do a job. We want to get some of these games they have got us on the bell and we want to start getting a few back and that starts this weekend for us."
