The 17 for ’16 – Wigan Warriors

In the penultimate of our 17 for ’16 feature, this time we look at one of the favourites for 2016, Wigan Warriors

It was a case of what could have been for Shaun Wane’s side in 2015, narrowly missing out to Leeds for both the League Leaders Shield and the Grand Final trophy.

But Wane has put his faith in his current crop of stars, bringing in just two players for the 2016 season – Sam Tomkins and Willie Isa.

So who will play for the Warriors this year? This is our predicted team when everyone is fully fit.
