Leuluai to make long-awaited return
Wigan scrum-half Thomas Leuluai is set to make his comeback from a broken leg in Sunday’s Stobart Super League match at Hull KR, where victory would enable the Warriors to clinch the league leaders’ shield.
Leuluai, who is leaving Wigan at the end of the season to rejoin New Zealand Warriors, has been sidelined since June after being injured playing for the Exiles against England.
Wigan coach Shaun Wane said: “Tommy has a chance of playing this weekend and we will assess him tomorrow.
“I had always looked at the Hull KR game for him. It is not 100% he will play but, if we can have him play for half-an-hour, then great.
“He is a great player and a great asset. Before he got injured we were playing some great rugby and to have him back before the play-offs is a bonus.”
