Wigan Warriors v Catalans Dragons Super League Magic Weekend Betting Tips (Saturday, 15:45 BST)

Jai Field returns to the Wigan Warriors squad for their Magic Weekend clash against Catalans Dragons at St James’ Park in Newcastle on Saturday.

Australian Field has been out of action since damaging his hamstring in their 34-6 win over local rivals Leigh Leopards back in March.

The Warriors have missed Field, not necessarily in terms of results, but they have missed his quality and speed. They have mainly had to rely on Bevan French, so having Field available is a huge lift.

He is the only change to the squad that beat Hull Kingston Rovers in golden point extra time, he replaces youngster Harvey Makin who did not feature in the game.

Dragons coach Steve McNamara has named Sam Tomkins, Mitchell Pearce and Alrix Da Costa in his 21-man squad. Matthieu Laguerre, Cesar Rouge and Ugo Tison all miss out.

The French side are currently third on the ladder with 18 points. They are level on points with the Warriors, but Wigan have a better points difference that edges them into second spot.

These two met in March with the Dragons edging out the Warriors 18-10 at the DW Stadium. I am backing Wigan to get a measure of revenge and get the two competition points with a margin victory of 11-15.

Having Field and French on the pitch at the same time gives Wigan so many attacking options. I expect them both to score tries, while I am backing Abbas Miski to grab the opening try of the game.
