GIANTS assistant coach Paul Anderson admits some tough selection decisions will have to be made between now and Friday’s Super League trip to Wigan Warriors.
All 17 players who were part of Sunday’s 46-6 home thrashing of Harlequins reported back to training yesterday injury-free.
And now available are New Zealand Test hooker David Faiumu and second-rower Andy Raleigh.
On top of that, fellow forwards Michael Korkidas, Larne Patrick and Joe Walsh are also keen to get into the squad to travel to the JJB Stadium.
“You can’t beat having competition for places, and that’s what we’ve got at the moment,” said Anderson.
“Some were unlucky to miss out on Sunday and, all being well, we’ve got more coming back this week.
“That’s going to make selection tough, but that’s the way you want it.
“Making changes, if any are to be made, won’t be easy.”
Martin Aspinwall (calf) is the only senior player on the sidelines but he could be back in contention for the Challenge Cup trip to Harlequins the following Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Giants are continuing to be linked with a move for Kiwi Test half-back Nathan Fien – for next season.
Huddersfield coach Nathan Brown revealed two months ago he had been keen to sign Fien as a replacement for Australian superstar Todd Carney, who failed to be granted a visa to play in England.
He’s out of contract at the end of this season.
