Finch set for first Wigan start

Wigan are ready to throw Brett Finch in for his debut in the biggest game of the Super League season so far.

The half-back was one of three players signed from the Melbourne Storm in the winter, but his debut has been delayed by a neck injury. He has been passed fit in time for tomorrow's home game with Warrington, the only team ahead of Wigan in the table.

He is likely to take the place usually occupied by Paul Deacon, who is recovering from a knock to the head. That would allow captain Sean O'Loughlin to move back to his regular position of loose forward.
