Wigan announce the release of forward duo

Wigan have announced the departure of two of the club’s academy product forwards.

Caine Barnes has spent time on loan with Workington, who he has since joined on permanent terms, while Samy Kibula will join Warrington at the end of the year, after having spent much of this year on loan with Dewsbury and Swinton in the Championship.

Wigan transition coach Darrell Goulding said: “Both Caine and Samy have found opportunities hard to come by in the Wigan Warriors senior set-up since their promotion from the academy.

“We wish them well in the future and we thank them for their efforts.”
