Gene Ormsby has been drafted into the Huddersfield Giants 19-man squad for Friday’s Super 8s trip to Hull FC.

The 24-year-old wingman takes the place of Giants captain Leroy Cudjoe, who misses out because of an ankle injury.

That’s the only change to Rick Stone’s personnel following the 18-4 loss at Wigan Warriors – a match for which Cudjoe was originally included but then withdrawn.

Huddersfield Giants confident of agreeing new deal with Jordan Rankin

Injured trio Ollie Roberts, Dale Ferguson and Sam Rapira all miss out.

This is the third match of the Super 8s campaign for the Giants, following an encouraging win against Wakefield and that defeat at the DW Stadium. The Giants will wear their alternative kit.

Giants squad: Jermaine McGillvary, Lee Gaskell, Danny Brough, Ryan Hinchcliffe, Shannon Wakeman, Michael Lawrence, Kruise Leeming, Sebastine Ikahihifo, Ukuma Ta’ai, Paul Clough, Nathan Mason, Daniel Smith, Gene Ormsby, Tyler Dickinson, Darnell McIntosh, Alex Mellor, Adam O’Brien, Jordan Turner, Jordan Rankin.
