Challenge Cup

Monday

Wigan v Widnes (+22) (2000 BST)

Wigan have won their last four at home against Widnes. They put 70 points on them earlier in the season at home and the bigger field worries Widnes. If Sam Tompkins plays, Wigan will win easily. They've had a blip in form but with injured players expected to return I think they'll be too consistent in both defence and attack and accumulate enough points to win and cover.
