John Bateman will bring up a century of Super League appearances in Wigans derby against St Helens on Friday, live on Sky Sports 3. The England international reached 99 appearances in the win at Castleford two months ago but has had a spell on the sidelines after being handed an eight-week ban and a £10,000 fine for an incident with a team-mate after a trip to Haydock races.The incident, which left a gym in Wigan town centre damaged, sparked speculation that Batemans career at the DW Stadium could be coming to an end but he resumed training last month. Coach Shaun Wane confirmed on Thursday that the 23-year-old will make his return in the derby match against Saints on Friday evening. Hes trained for many weeks now and hes fit and raring to go, Wane said. Wigan v St Helens: Key Battles Tom Mordey examines three key head-to-heads in Fridays crunch Super League derby. Bateman was among the group of 31 Super League-based players who attended a meeting with England coach Wayne Bennett during his suspension and now has a chance to play himself into contention ahead of the Four Nations Series in October. Wigan will, however, be without the services of suspended duo of Josh Charnley and Taulima Tautai for the match but are boosted by the return of skipper Sean OLoughlin after his one match ban. Brian Carney previews all this weekends Super League matches including the mouth-watering clash between Wigan and St Helens Former New Zealand prop Frank Paul Nuuausala, who rejected an offer from St Helens, will make his home debut for the Warriors as they look to finish the regular season on a high.It will be good to introduce Frank to a Wigan and Saints derby, said Wane. He thought the atmosphere at Leeds was fantastic but hell not have had one like this before, even in Test matches.Hes a while off his best because hes not played for many months but when hes good hell be very good. Have a look at Barrie McDermott and Terry OConnors favourite hits from round 22 of Super League 2016 The biggest crowd of the Super League season is expected at the DW Stadium for the visit of St Helens, who are aiming for a fifth successive win after finding their best form of an inconsistent campaign.Its our most important game of the season, Wane said. St Helens are playing with a lot more confidence now.Like Leeds, I knew theyd come good. Theyve too many good players not to.Theres a lot of feeling, a lot of respect. Itll be the biggest crowd of the SL season so we cant wait now. Sean OLoughlin gets sent off for a high shot on Chris Annakin The match will provide Saints, who name an unchanged squad for the clash, with the chance to leapfrog fast-fading Catalans Dragons into fourth spot, ahead of the French sides trip to Widnes on Sunday, and coach Keiron Cunningham is hoping they can maintain their momentum against their arch-rivals.These are always big games and, because we have come off the back of some good wins, it means a little more to us to get over the finish line on Friday night, he said. There isnt any extra motivation needed for these games, itis an eagerly-anticipated match. Wigans Taulima Tautai will sit out the match through suspension All we can do is take care of ourselves. We cant influence the variables away from our games. The boys are working hard and getting the rewards they deserve.The players are working as hard now as they did back then. Sometimes things just click and as the confidence amongst the group gets better passes stick and the attack looks more clinical. The old adage that you make your own luck is true and we have found a little bit of that along the way.Wigan Warriors: John Bateman, Dom Crosby, Ben Flower, Oliver Gildart, Jack Higginson, Willie Isa, Dom Manfredi, Lee Mossop, Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Sean OLoughlin, Sam Powell, Dan Sarginson, Jake Shorrocks, Matty Smith, Kyle Shelford, Ryan Sutton, Lewis Tierney, Sam Tomkins, George Williams.St Helens: Jonny Lomax, Jordan Turner, Mark Percival, Adam Swift, Luke Walsh, Alex Walmsley, James Roby, Kyle Amor, Atelea Vea, Jon Wilkin, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Lama Tasi, Greg Richards, Luke Thompson, Joe Greenwood, Jack Owens, Shannon McDonnell, Matty Fleming, Morgan Knowles.Watch Wigan v St Helens live on Sky Sports 3 HD on Friday from 7.30pm.

Theo Riddick Jersey . -- Andy Dorman and Kelyn Rowe scored in the second half to lead the New England Revolution to a 2-1 victory over Sporting Kansas City in the first leg of their Eastern Conference semifinals series on Saturday night. Kerry Hyder Jersey .com) - Nino Williams posted 18 points and seven rebounds, as Kansas State edged No. http://www.shopdetroitlionsnfl.com/lion ... ck-jersey/. "I wouldnt read anything into what happened Saturday at Torrey Pines," Woods said Tuesday after an 18-hole exhibition for past winners of the Dubai Desert Classic. Jarrad Davis Youth Jersey .com) - The surging Montreal Canadiens will try to match their longest winning streak of the season when they visit the Florida Panthers for Saturdays clash at BB&T Center. Marvin Jones Jr Jersey . Though the 26-year-old said he was able to participate, coach Dwane Casey kept Johnson out as a precaution.1. CHUCK HAYES (Raptors): Give coach Dwane Casey credit last night vs. Boston. Jarred Sullinger was killing the Raps on the glass and in the paint and he went with a guy that was perfect for this matchup and it worked. Dont judge a book by its cover. This man knows how to play and on certain nights when the matchups work, hes a good steady/smart fit. So often coaches ride a hot hand offensively -- this one was riding a right guy at the right time. Forget the stats - hes a winner. 2. JAMES JOHNSON (Raptors): Been very impressed with his energy and play making ability. Has had some wonderful drives and neat passes so far. His defensive awareness and ability is top shelf and is a game-changer at the three or four spot off the bench. A good get the second time around. Just keep playing under control and good things are ahead for him. 3. JEFF GREEN (Celtics): Really like how hes been playing so far this season; playing with a little more assertiveness and passion than Ive seen in the past. Weve always known that hes a nice talent but there has always bbeen something missing.dddddddddddd Now Im starting to see a guy figuring it out and playing to his potential. Good for him. 4. JJ BAREA (Mavs): Love this move for both sides. He fits their system ideally and gives you instant offense off the bench. He can get in the lane and backs down from no one. He was an integral part of their championship run four years ago and gives them a veteran who knows and respects coach Rick Carlisle and what the expectations are. Didnt work out very well in Minnesota but at this stage I like this for both sides. 5. SERGE IBAKA (Thunder): I must say that in spite of the injury woes of OKC, Im really impressed with his approach/attitude. His game is improving offensively with his handle, shooting range and consistently. His defense is impactful and he plays so hard - I respect that. Even though times are tough right now, the Thunder have truly found that third guy that can play beautifully off of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Hes an emerging young player; a testament to his work ethic and maturity.
