Whitehaven have made a few changes to their starting line-up as they welcome Wigan St Patrick's in the Coral Challenge Cup this afternoon.

The clash beat the early snowy weather that struck the county and saw some games called off.

But despite a freezing cold wind blowing across the Recreation Ground, both sides are here and raring to go for this third round tie.

Sam Forrester has switched into the middle of the park and starts the game at stand-off, forming a half back partnership with Callum Phillips for this game.

Coach Gary Charlton is also giving starts to centre Jessie Joe Parker, Ruairi McGoff, Sam Dowsett, Matty While and new signing Kurt Maudling for the cup game.

Skipper Marc Shackley starts on the bench, alongside Dion Aiye, Tom Wilkinson and Lewis Brown.

Haven: Burns, Thompson, Taylor, Parker, Bulman, Forrester, C Phillips, McGoff, Dowsett, While, Holliday, Maudling, Bradley. Subs: Aiye, Brown, Shackley, Wilkinson.

St Pats: Hampson, Velvin, Warburton, Arrowsmith, McGaughey, Prior, Yates, Bristo, J Higham, Turton, A Higham, Ryding, Brown. Subs: Rosser, Braddock, McGoldrick, Webb.
