Warriors will wear a one-off kit when they face Catalans on Saturday.

Due to sponsorship restrictions in France, shirt sponsor 188BET’s logo can’t appear on Warriors’ shirts.

Instead, the day-glow third kit will bear the Joining Jack logo for the match, which kicks off at 5pm and will be screened by Sky Sports.

Warriors rugby director, Kris Radlinski, said: “It is a fantastic gesture from the 188BET to give their position on the front of the shirt to Joining Jack and the exposure the charity receives will be great.

“The Wigan Club is proud to be able to support the Joining Jack charity again. The charity is very close to all of our hearts and the people of Wigan simply cannot do enough for Joining Jack. We are delighted to be able to wear the Joining Jack logo across our chest.”

The shirts worn by the players will be available for auction at the end of the year with all proceeds going to Joining Jack.
