FORMER Giants forward Jon Grayshon is in line to make his return for Harlequins in Sunday's Super League showdown at the Galpharm.

The 23-year-old (pictured right), who moved to London from Huddersfield at the end of last season, has not played since suffering a hamstring injury in the 64-8 Challenge Cup win at French club Pia three weeks ago.

But the Quins are without Matt Gafa and Henry Paul, who both suffered damaged ankles in last Saturday's 22-22 home draw with Wakefield.

If the Wildcats are used as a yardstick for form, that draw is in stark contrast to the Giants' 56-12 home hammering of the same opposition a fortnight before.

And Harlequins head coach Brian McDermott, the former Giants assistant to Tony Smith, knows his side will have to be at their very best.

"We're heading up there on Sunday fully expecting to play a team which is on top of the ground and full of confidence," said McDermott (left).

"I never really believed that Huddersfield were `struggling' as some would have you believe with the way they started the season.

"They have been putting in some consistently good performances, but were not getting the right results in terms of Super League points. They now have back-to-back wins.

"We were obviously very disappointed not to beat Wakefield last week.

"But after coming from 10 points behind and down a man from the opening minute, I know the players emptied whatever they had left in their tanks.

"The Easter period took its toll on everyone, and we've given the players a couple of days off to freshen themselves up."
