RESERVE Team Championship chief Paul Cook is ready to cash in on the Giants’ clean bill of health.
With head coach Nathan Brown having a full-strength Super League side at his disposal, several members of Huddersfield’s full-time squad will miss out against Wigan Warriors at the JJB Stadium tonight.
As a result, it means Cook is able to field a strong side for tomorrow’s tough Reserve trip to unbeaten Wigan (2.30).
Michael Korkidas, Larne Patrick and Joe Walsh – who have all featured in Super League this season – are already confirmed in the side.
They will be joined by the two players who miss out on final selection for tonight’s encounter.
And Cook can’t wait to see what such a strong line-up can do.
“Playing Wigan away is as tough as it comes at this level,” said Cook, who is also able to include the likes of promising youngsters Keal Carlile and Josh Griffin.
“They’re unbeaten so far this season and a couple of weeks ago I saw them thrash Leeds at Headingley, so we know we’re going to have to play well.
“But with the squad I’ll be able to field tomorrow, I’m confident we can give a very good account of ourselves.
“Unfortunately, it means some of the young players we have in the Reserve set-up are going to miss out, which is disappointing, but their time will come.”
