Ones to Watch


Liam Marshall


Wigan’s flying winger, Liam Marshall has been influential at both sides of the field, scoring tries for fun and making plenty of metres in the backfield, the winger has been a standout this year once again.



Bevan French


The utility back, Bevan French is another player that has been significant in bringing trophies back to the Wigan Warriors in recent years.  The Wigan superstar has added to his multiple Super League honours last week by lifting the Challenge Cup trophy as well as winning the Lance Todd Trophy.




Harry Smith


Crucial in the Warriors attack is stand stand-off Harry Smith that pulls the strings for Wigan. The number 7 is renowned for his kicking game and putting Wigan on the front foot. He will be one to keep an eye on against the Tigers. His impressive attacking style of play has been the difference maker this year for Wigan.
