Sam Rapira is back for Huddersfield.

But fellow forwards Eorl Crabtree and Tom Symonds will miss Saturday’s vital Middle 8s clash at Leigh Centurions.

Crabtree (ribs) and Symonds (calf) have both failed fitness tests and aren’t being risked for a game where a Giants win would significantly strengthen their bid to retain their Super League status.

Rapira missed last Friday’s 40-4 home victory over London Broncos with a slight hamstring strain and is a natural prop replacement for Crabtree, while hooker Kyle Wood is also back in the 19-man squad after missing out last week.
