CASTLEFORD Tigers will provide the Giants with one of their biggest tests ahead of the start of Super League XVII.
The two clubs have confirmed they will face each other at the PROBIZ Coliseum in a first-team trial clash on Sunday, January 15 (3.30).
Huddersfield are in the process of arranging at least two more warm-up matches before the new top-flight campaign gets under way in early February.
But the big Tigers test – prices have already been fixed at £13 for adults and £6 concessions – could be the most significant.
All the Giants’ six new signings will be expected to wear the claret and gold for the first time, with Jason Chan (from Crusaders), Greg Eden (Castleford), Luke George, Tommy Lee, Aaron Murphy (all Wakefield) and Tony Tonks (Featherstone) in the frame.
At the same time, it will also be a big day for hosts Castleford, with new Tigers coach Ian Millward ready to give his latest senior recruits a first run-out.
