Wigan Squad v London : Wed Jun 19, 2024 11:51 am  
Re: Wigan Squad v London : Wed Jun 19, 2024 12:20 pm  
Stronger squad than I expected. I thought we may see guys like Makin and Eseh in (probably for the best that Eseh goes and gets regular games at Leeds though).

I'd rest Marshall, Smith, Thompson and Farrell for a few reasons (Injuries, concussion risks, age and I'd expect them all to be involved for England next week) and the side then picks itself from the rest with French at 1, Hampshire 6 and Farrimond 7. Douglas to get another game on the wing, which I'm looking forward to seeing.

Go full strength get 60 + points.

Hopefully Wane has given Peet the nod on who he intends to select next week.

I'd be looking to go as strong as possible for this. Once the final whistle blows, the majority of the team will be looking at having 2 weeks off. There are very few compelling reasons to rest anyone for this week (unless they need it, or are playing for England). We also need to start work on reducing the points deficit Vs Saints.

I'm easy either way but Peet has already said he's going to play some young players who've been waiting for a chance (presume he means Farrimond and Douglas looking at the squad). In truth, we should be able to rack up some points regardless of the make up of the 17 against London, as long as the attitude is good. If I look back to the away game we put 60 on them with a weakened side, so what I'd like to see is a better attitude to defending against them.

Go full strength and then have Waney pick every Englishman from St helens to take part in the international, leaving our players to have a well-deserved break.

I’d imagine Saints will pick up a few ‘injuries’ on Sunday. A complete coincidence that they’ll all be English.

Well Knowles, Batchelor, Walmsley, Lomax and Makinson are already injured :D

That only leaves Percival, Lees, Clark and Welsby if any are selected.

Who are we likely to see in the England squad from a Wigan POV.

Marshall, Wardle, Thompson, Smith O’Neill, Havard, Dupree maybe even Junior ?

I’d be tempted to give the lads who haven’t had a break a week off this week if possible.

Wane has indicated it'll be a younger squad so it's hard to say but if I ignore ages and put players in probables and possibles, I'd go-

Probables

Wardle
Smith
Thompson
Farrell (if he can be bothered, I'm not sure I would be if I were him)

Possibles

Marshall
O'Neill
Havard
Dupree
Nsemba

IMO Marshall and O'Neill should be selected without a shadow of a doubt. A hooking partnership of O'Neill and Clark would be excellent. Marshall has outperformed every winger in superleague this season.
