FIVE former Giants could be in action for Castleford Tigers in tomorrow’s Super League XV clash at the Galpharm Stadium tomorrow.
Captain Ryan Hudson, Steve Snitch, Stuart Jones, Paul Jackson and Ryan Clayton are in coach Terry Matterson’s 19-man squad for the West Yorkshire derby.
It would have been six Huddersfield ‘old boys’ had centre James Evans not been sidelined through injury.
In fact, injuries are proving a major headache for Matterson as they prepare for battle.
Missing tomorrow will also be fellow senior players Richard Owen, Kirk Dixon, Brent Sherwin and Brett Ferres.
Giants: B Hodgson, Cudjoe, Lolesi, Whaturia, D Hodgson, Brown, Robinson, Crabtree, Mason, Gilmour, Fa’alogo, Raleigh, Griffin, Lawrence, Faiumu, Grix, Aspinwall, Horne, Brough.
Tigers: Shenton, Wainwright, Chase, Sargent, Huby, Hudson, Snitch, Westerman, Jones, Higgins, Jackson, Clayton, Netherton, Thompson, McGoldrick, Ainscough, Cooper, Tuson, Walker.
Super League leaders Wigan will be without in-form Amos Roberts for eight weeks.
The utility back collided with a post while scoring a try during Monday’s 54-14 win over Wakefield and has suffered knee ligament damage..
