JOE Burgess has been named in Wigan’s provisional squad to face Castleford.

But Shaun Wane appears undecided about whether to play him on Friday night, after also including Dom Manfredi in the 19-man panel.

Wane had previously said: “I’ll have a look at Budgies’s game, have a chat with him towards the end of the week. Whether he plays or not, I’ll decide then.”

Test centre Dan Sarginson returns – a move which will allow Joel Tomkins to replace Connor Farrell in the back-row.

Matty Bowen has replaced Ryan Hampshire, who played at full-back in the 22-20 loss at Hull KR.

Wigan’s 19-man squad: Bowen, Charnley, Gelling, Sarginson, Burgess, Williams, Smith, McIlorum, J Tomkins, Farrell, Bateman, Powell, Clubb, Manfredi, Tautai, Patrick, Mossop, Sutton, Greenwood.
