Just over two years ago Wigan travelled to the KCOM Stadium looking to maintain a charge going into the unknown of the Super 8s for the first time.
The Warriors had won on their last five trips to Hull and Shaun Wane brought in Matty Bowen for Ryan Hampshire in the full-back position with youngsters Sam Powell and Ryan Sutton also coming in on the bench replacing Lee Mossop and Larne Patrick.
A victory would mean, Wigan would have a week off on the back of three straight wins.
The two sides will make history in February 2018 when they contest the first Super League match outside of Europe at Wollongong’s WIN Stadium, home to the St George Illawara Dragons before heading up to Sydney for the double-header clash with South Sydney Rabbitohs
