SEAN O’LOUGHLIN has confirmed he will lead out Wigan in his testimonial clash against the Giants at the DW Stadium tomorrow night (8.00).
The Warriors skipper has now made a 100% recovery after undergoing surgery on a hip injury at the end of last season.
The operation meant he missed England’s Four Nations campaign.
But he’s delighted it’s given him enough time to play in the game that will honour his 10 years at his hometown club.
And he admits he’ll also be proud to enter the DW arena wearing a special benefit shirt to mark the occasion.
“There’s obviously no way I’d have wanted to miss this one,” said the highly-respected 29-year-old loose-forward.
“I hope it proves to be a great night, and I also hope the Wigan fans like the special testimonial shirt we’ll be wearing on the night.
Supporters will be paying on the turnstile as there are no tickets for this fixture.
Admission is £15 for adults and £5 concessions.
And can Giants fans note there is no club travel available to Wigan for the game.
