SHAUN Wane will put his faith in Wigan’s tried and tested front-line stars at Warrington this weekend.
The Warriors coach is hoping to welcome back Brett Finch (hamstring), Darrell Goulding (concussion), Ben Flower and Paul Prescott (both leg) for Saturday’s trip to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
That means rookies Jack Hughes and Sam Powell, who were so impressive in last Friday’s win over Hull, will take a step back out of the firing line.
“Jack looked great (against Hull) – he was outstanding – but Darrell is my centre, and he’s played consistently well,” Wane said.
“There will be time for Jack, he will get his chance down the line. But I have a good memory.”
Wane is still without Thomas Leuluai, Pat Richards and Stuart Fielden, but expects Epalahame Lauaki – who left the action against Hull with concussion – to make it.
Meanwhile, Warriors have received an initial allocation of 900 tickets in the South Stand (uncovered terracing behind the posts) for the Super League clash at Hull KR on Sunday, September 2 (3pm).
