Key Giants quartet aim to bring spur for top-six quest!
FOUR key Giants players are winning their battles to be fit for tomorrow's crunch Super League clash against London Broncos at the Galpharm Stadium (3.00).
Chris Thorman, Stanley Gene, Hefin O'Hare and Stuart Donlan all trained well yesterday and are hopeful of passing late fitness tests ahead of the clash with the capital club.
A positive outcome for the experienced quartet would give Giants coach Jon Sharp a big boost as his side bids to secure a sixth victory of the campaign that could lift them back into the top six play-off zone.
Thorman played in the Giants last match at Leeds 15 days ago, but was again withdrawn early with a recurrence of his back injury.
But he has been improving daily, as have Gene (shoulder), Donlan (groin) and O'Hare (knee).
And Sharp is keeping his fingers crossed that the fitness of all four enables them to play in a game which he believes could be particularly high in entertainment.
"The picture on the injury front is looking much brighter right now," he reported.
"Apart from Paul Reilly (hand) and James Evans (thumb), we may have everyone available tomorrow.
"The fitness of our four main injury doubts from the start of the week is continuing to improve daily and by tomorrow they could all be given the green light.
"That's obviously great news, because we know we face another tough challenge in the Broncos.
"They have some fantastic players and will add to what should be a great spectacle.
"Both London and ourselves like to play an attacking, open style of rugby and the fans could be in for a treat tomorrow.
"And if we have the likes of Chris, Stanley, Hefin and Stuart available, our attacking options will obviously increase even further."
