THE Huddersfield Giants will have their three Exiles on duty as they head for Castleford in the Super League on Sunday.
Although initially Huddersfield trio David Fa’alogo, David Faiumu and Jason Chan had all been pencilled in to face England – and their clubmates Eorl Crabtree, Leroy Cudjoe and Danny Brough – at the Galpharm Stadium in the second Test last night, none of the trio played.
Fa’alogo and Faiumu pulled out of the side, who were 32-20 winners to level the series, through injury earlier in the week, while Chan will be fresh to play at Castleford after he was left out of the final 17 by Exiles coach Daniel Anderson.
“Fuey (Faiumu) is right to play at Castleford and we are very hopeful that David (Fa’alogo) will be too,” said Giants head coach Nathan Brown.
“As for the England boys, we will just have to see how they go and how they recover, but we would hope to have at least two of them in the side.”
All three of the Giants England players came through unscathed with Brough landing two goals on his debut and Cudjoe grabbing a late try in a defeat that was watched by a crowd of just 7,865.
