Wigan Warriors' coach Shaun Wane believes his club captain Sean O'Loughlin has future leadership qualities.
Former Wigan Warriors rugby league star Sam Tomkins has made his debut in Australia's National Rugby League.
Josh Charnley scores two tries but it's not enough as Wigan Warriors lose 36-14 to Sydney Roosters in the World Club Challenge.
Reigning champions Wigan turned on the style to end the 100 per cent First Utility Super League record of rivals St Helens in a Good Friday derby of pure quality in front of a sell-out Langtree Park crowd of 17,980.
England second-rower Liam Farrell produced two devastating finishes to score two of the Warriors' five tries and former St Helens scrum-half Matty Smith kicked six goals and a drop goal in a 33-14 victory, Wigan's fifth in a row that takes them to within four points of their table-topping rivals.
Wigan winger Josh Charnley will be out for up to two months with a knee injury.
Charnley, Super League's leading try-scorer for each of the last two seasons, twisted his knee in the early stages of the Warriors' 58-6 Challenge Cup win over Dewsbury.
"Josh is going to be out for six to eight weeks," Wane said. "He doesn't need an operation but needs time off his legs. He's slightly twisted his knee but there's no ligament damage."
Reserve winger Dom Manfredi is set to deputise, starting with Friday's home game against London Broncos, who have yet to win a game in 2014. Wane admits he is tempted to rest some of his senior players ahead of the Easter schedule.
"I'll pick a very competitive team," Wane said. "We've had a few tough games this year so, if I need to rest someone before the Good Friday game at St Helens, I will.
"I've not made my mind up yet.''
