ANTHONY MULLALLY will make his Giants Super League debut on Sunday.
Huddersfield chief Paul Anderson has confirmed the 21-year-old former Widnes Vikings prop will be in the 17 to face Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium (3.30).
The 6ft 5in, 17st 6lbs forward missed out on a place in the opening three rounds as the Giants stormed to the top of the table.
But Anderson feels he’s ready to make his claret and gold bow – and is confident he’ll do a good job.
“Anthony’s been disappointed to have missed out so far, and that’s the way he should be,” said Anderson.
“But I told him a couple of weeks ago he’d have to wait until the Wakefield game to get his chance, and he accepted that.
“He’s remained patient and is now ready to show us all what he can do.
“Like everyone else in the squad, he’s had a good pre-season and he has shown up well in the trials.
“So we’re all looking forward to him taking that into the game at Wakefield on Sunday, and I know he can’t wait to get out there.”
Anderson admits a final decision on who’s place Mullally will take has still to be decided.
But with Craig Kopczak still struggling with a sore neck, it’s possible the former Bradford Bulls man could be the one to miss out.
“We’re in good shape after what was a physical game against Wigan,” he added. “It’s a case of waiting to see which way we decide to go.”
