CAUTIOUS Giants coach Jon Sharp is adopting a policy of `safety first' for tomorrow's tough Super League trip to in-form Wigan Warriors (3.00).
Huddersfield travel to the JJB Stadium seeking their first double over Wigan in the Super League era.
Memories of the Giants' superb 26-10 McAlpine win in April are still very much alive, and Sharp would dearly love to get the better again over the famous Lancashire club.
But he has resisted the temptation to recall Brandon Costin (hamstring) and will leave out forward Paul Smith, who picked up a shoulder injury in the 25-18 win at Salford six days ago.
"Brandon is close to returning and Paul was 50-50 yesterday," said Sharp.
"But I didn't think it would be fair including them in case the injuries were aggravated.
"Luckily, I believe I have more than enough quality cover, and I certainly have faith in those players that will take to the field tomorrow.
"It's good to have Eorl Crabtree back after his severe bout of migraine attacks, and he'll give us a little extra bite.
"I know we have a side capable of doing well."
With Costin and Smith now ruled out, Sharp has named an 18-man squad, with Paul White once again poised to make a first start of the campaign.
Opponents Wigan will also select from an 18-man squad.
Those are the 17 that secured the morale-boosting 30-14 victory over St Helens last Friday, plus fit-again second-rower Mick Cassidy.
But Brian Carney and Kevin Brown are still out.
