Kyle Wood deserves an extended Huddersfield Giants Super League run.

That’s the view of head coach Paul Anderson after confirming the hooker/half-back is in line for a top-flight return at home to leaders Warrington Wolves on Friday night.

The 26-year-old missed the Giants’ opening Super League XXI fixtures with a groin injury and was then easing his way back to full fitness in the next four games before sitting out the last two losses at Castleford and Hull FC with another groin problem.

And after another injury-hit start to a Super League campaign – Wood also missed the start of the 2015 season after recovering from a knee reconstruction – Anderson believes the former Wakefield and Castleford playmaker’s luck deserves to change.

“Woody will be named in our 19-man squad,” confirmed Anderson.

“And I just hope that when he does get back onto the field he finally gets some luck going his way, because that’s something he hasn’t had when it’s come to injuries for a couple of years now.

“Every time he’s started to put some good runs together, he seems to pick up another problem through no fault of his own.

“It must be really frustrating for him, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that when he finally gets back this time, he stays back.”
