Tom Johnstone will be in contention for a starting place for Wakefield a week after signing a three year extension on his contract. He joins Kyle Trout who has also been named in the 19 man squad.

They replace Tim Smith and Danny Kirmond who are the latest players to be forced out with injuries, after picking up knocks in the Huddersfield Giants fixture.

Head Coach James Webster said, "Obviously we have got a few people out from our 19 man squad from last week. Danny Kirmond and Tim Smith will not be playing. Tim has a knee injury and will need to go see a specialist and Danny Kirmond has been carrying various injuries for a long period of time, and he is just not fit enough to play.

"It gives us a good opportunity to give a run out to some of the younger players again. We go to Wigan with a mindset that we are still looking at getting a result."

The 19 man squad is named below:

Joe Arundel
Dean Collis
Jordan Crowther
George Griffin
Craig Hall
Jordan Hand
Tom Johnstone
Ali Lauitiiti
Paul McShane
Jacob Miller
Richard Owen
Chris Riley
Matt Ryan
Jarrod Sammut
