Scott Grix is available for the Giants’ Good Friday Super League trip to Salford Red Devils.
The 29-year-old full-back was last night fined £300 after admitting striking Hull captain Gareth Ellis during his side’s 30-6 defeat by the Black and Whites last Thursday , but escaped a ban.
Grix, who pleaded guilty to the grade A offence when he appeared in front of a Rugby Football League disciplinary panel, was also issued with a warning letter.
The ruling means he is free to continue his ever-present record in 2014 and has helped head coach Paul Anderson avoid the prospect of a major backline re-shuffle.
Had Grix been banned, it could have left the way clear for talented teenager Jake Connor to make his 2014 Super League bow.
Alternatively, the Giants chief may have opted to name Aaron Murphy as the last line of defence.
The former Wakefield utility back has covered for the injured Leroy Cudjoe at centre in the last two games.
But with the England man poised for a return from an ankle injury – as is forward Larne Patrick after a knee injury suffered during the opening-night win at Wigan – Anderson could opt for the more experienced Murphy instead.
There’s still a chance Connor could figure over the Easter period, however, with the Giants facing the prospect of two games in four days.
After playing Salford on Friday, Huddersfield then host Wakefield on Easter Monday, when the strength of Anderson’s squad will be tested to the full.
