GIANTS will monitor the progress of Graeme Horne through the week after he sustained a neck injury.
Horne suffered the knock in Sunday’s 14-10 home defeat by Warrington Wolves and the Giants will take their time in assessing the severity of the injury.
A club spokesman said: “It is a neck muscle injury and, while it is not as bad as first thought, we will still have to keep an eye on his progress over the next few days.”
Meanwhile, Huddersfield’s teenage centre Michael Lawrence has been cleared to play in the Giants’ Super League derby with Wakefield at Belle Vue on Saturday.
The 19-year-old was put on report for an alleged “spear” tackle during Huddersfield’s 14-10 home defeat by Warrington but has been told by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel that he has no case to answer.
The Giants suffered a setback in the Under 20 Championship as they went down 40-16 at Warrington.
The visitors had looked strong in the opening half of the clash at Wilderspool and the teams were tied 10-10 at the interval, however the Wolves turned up the heat to runaway with the game in the second period. Giants tries came from Joe Parkinson, Kyle Wood and Elliot Hodgson, with Greg McNally adding two goals.
Leeds centre Keith Senior met Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington to explain his critical comments about World Club Challenge referee Richard Silverwood, from Mirfield.
However, the club declined to say if the player is facing any disciplinary action after his reaction to the 18-10 defeat to Melbourne Storm, insisting it is an internal matter.
