THE Rugby Football League could be about to announce a major U-turn on the Giants' Super League trip to London Broncos later this month.
Huddersfield fans were angry when Sky TV last week announced the fixture would be switched from Sunday, July 24 to the previous Friday for the benefit of television.
But there is now a very strong possibility that the match could be back on the Sunday.
If the switch is confirmed, the RFL are expected to reveal the reasons behind the change.
These could include the major inconvenience the late change has caused supporters, with some Giants fans fearing they would lose out financially.
They include the Giants Vice Presidents, who last week claimed they would lose around £1,000 by having to cancel transport and accommodation so late in the day.
However, there is also speculation that the Broncos would not have been allowed to stage the game on a Friday night by landlords Brentford FC, who are due to stage a big pre-season fixture at Griffin Park the following day.
But whatever the reasons, the news is expected to be well received by Huddersfield supporters.
And when the Giants make the trip to the capital, they will be hoping to be involved in a battle with the Broncos to get back into the top six.
That could be achieved with victory against Leigh at the Galpharm on Sunday (3.00) and then success at Hull the following Saturday.
Giants head coach Jon Sharp, meanwhile today confirmed that Stanley Gene (knee) and Chris Thorman (ankle) are struggling after suffering injuries during Saturday's 24-16 defeat at Salford.
They will undergo late fitness checks at the end of the week.
