KEITH MASON is ready to make a Giants return!
The no-nonsense prop, left, has been named in his side’s initial 19-man squad for tomorrow’s home Cup clash against Catalan Dragons.
A potential place in the 17 will be decided following a final run-through this morning when Mason will have to prove he has fully recovered from the knee injury which has kept him sidelined for two months.
Opponents Catalan have been boosted by the return of scrum-half Scott Dureau, who missed last week’s Super League defeat at Leeds, with a slight knock.
Dureau has recovered from injury and is set to make his return to face the Rhinos.
But they are without Remi Casty, Ben Farrar, Steve Menzies, Clint Greenshields, Vincent Duport and Cyrille Gossard will miss the game.
Giants: Grix, Lawrence, Cudjoe, Gilmour, Hodgson, Brown, Brough, Crabtree, Robinson, Griffin, Faiumu, Lunt, Mason, Kirmond, Patrick, Horne, McGillvary, Cording, Ferguson.
Dragons: Blanch, Sa, Stacul, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Raguin, Mounis, Gigot, Baile, Millard, Vaccari, Simon, Martins, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Touxagas.
Referee: Phil Bentham
