SHANE ELFORD is ready to resume his Giants’ Super League career.
The 29-year-old Australian utility back, right, has been given the all-clear by his specialist to return to the Super League fold.
And Giants chief Jon Sharp has confirmed that could be as soon as this Sunday when the Giants entertain Warrington Wolves at the Galpharm.
“Shane is fit and ready to go,’’ said Sharp.
“He has worked really hard on his rehab and his reward is to return ahead of schedule.
“His return is good news all round.’’
Meanwhile, Hull KR have offered Melbourne Storm’s Australia centre Matt King a deal for next season.
Wigan were thought to be favourites to sign the powerful 26-year-old, who has expressed a desire to play in England.
But it is Rovers who have been the first to declare their hand with an offer conditional on them retaining their place in the engage Super League.
Coach Justin Morgan said: “Matt King is a top-quality player.
“We have put an offer to him and we have had a very positive response from his agent and he is likely to come to the UK.
“Whether that is with us or somebody else I don’t know.”
King is expected to make a decision on his future after playing for New South Wales in today’s State of Origin against Queensland.
