Shaun Wane has spoken out about the growing injury list at Wigan - saying it justifies his decision to play youngsters earlier on in the season.
With Lee Mossop dislocating his shoulder in the game against London, Wane is also now without Hame Lauaki, Paul Prescott and Harrison Hansen.
Speaking to Wigan TV he said:
"The choice of me playing those kids in the friendlies is looking like it is going to pay off.
Even though people didn't agree with it, I am glad I did it now."
