HUDDERSFIELD Giants Under 19s are ready to take centre stage.

With no Super League games this weekend because of Friday’s England v Exiles Origin clash at Warrington, the club’s academy youngsters are looking to step up.

Coach Chris Thorman’s side host Widnes Vikings at Huddersfield YMCA on Saturday (2.00) seeking an eighth win from 15 starts.

And the in-form Giants should be confident of success after securing a 34-22 triumph against Hull KR at Craven Park last time out.

Back-row forward George King led the way with two tries, while there was one each for full-back Jake Connor, winger Jared Simpson, hooker Kruise Leeming and substitute Jack Blagborough.

Scrum-half Jack Miller added five goals.

Also in action on Saturday are Huddersfield’s Under 16s who face Widnes at the Stobart Stadium (2.30).
