INJURY could ruin Giants star Brandon Costin's chances of setting a new Super League record.
The inspirational Australian raced over for a try for the ninth successive game during the 30-16 defeat at Bradford Bulls on Sunday, which equalled the record achievements of Paul Newlove, Paul Sterling and Anthony Sullivan.
But the 29-year-old also suffered a shoulder injury after going over for his 19th try of the season, which took him to the top of the Super League tryscoring charts.
And now he is a doubt for Sunday's big clash against Widnes Vikings at the McAlpine Stadium (5.30).
"Brandon's undergone an X-ray on his shoulder and, fortunately, there's no major damage," reported coach Tony Smith.
"But he's still very sore and there's a question mark over his availability to play against Widnes at this stage.
"Luckily, there's still time and it could be a different story by the end of the week.
"He's well aware that he could set a new Super League record this weekend.
"Yet he's more determined to recover in order to help us secure a victory over one of our major play-off rivals.
"I know he's desperate to play because of that, and every effort is being made to give Brandon the best chance.
"He's receiving treatment around the clock."
But Costin isn't the only player under the supervision of the club's medical staff.
Around half-a-dozen other players picked up knocks in last weekend's Odsal clash.
The most serious was obviously the broken left leg suffered by second-rower Jonathan Grayshon.
Next on the list is the rib cartilage injury suffered by scrum half Paul March, who could be out for a couple of weeks.
"Such is the nature of our injury situation that it would probably be easier to say who's fit than who isn't," added Smith.
"Luckily, Paul Reilly has declared himself fit after missing the Bulls game and I'm hoping Jamie Bloem and Marcus St Hilaire will also be available after missing last week with groin and back injuries respectively.
"But I expect it will be a case of taking a body count at training on Saturday."
