Gene Ormsby and Darnell McIntosh look to be vying for the wing spot vacated by the injured Jermaine McGillvary for the Giants.

England winger McGillvary has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a quad tear and sits out the clash against Hull FC on Thursday along with back-row forward Ukuma Ta’ai.

Ta’ai has accepted an early guilty plea for a Grade B high tackle on Ben Jones-Bishop during Huddersfield’s 24-16 home win over Wakefield. Ta’ai is banned just for the one game.

But coming back into the squad is Giants skipper Leroy Cudjoe, who missed the Wakefield game with a knee injury.

There’s also a place in the 19 for young back-row forward Mikey Wood, for the first time this year.

Included in the Hull side is former Giants utility back Jake Connor, who moved from Huddersfield to Hull at the end of last season.

Meanwhile, opponents Hull are boosted by the return of half-back Albert Kelly after serving a one-match ban.
