Wigan lead the way in Super League having won all three of their matches since the restart, whilst Hull KR sit at the foot of the table, failing to register a win since the opening round of the season.
Rovers suffered a double injury blow last time out against St Helens, with Adam Quinlan and Ryan Brierley both sidelined. This allows Jez Litten and Harvey Livett to come into the squad.
The Warriors have made five changes to their squad which includes Oliver Gildart for the first time this season, Oliver Partington, Joe Burgess, Mitch Clark and Jack Wells also return. Morgan Smithies, Liam Marshall and George Burgess all missing out.
Despite a raft of changes, Wigan should retain top spot in Super League on Thursday night, despite Hull KR producing an encouraging performance against Saints last weekend. Adrian Lam’s side haven’t been at their free-flowing best this season, but should have too much for Tony Smith’s charges.
