The Huddersfield Giants and Salford are to share a cryotherapy chamber straight after today’s Super League clash.
The state-of-the-art mobile facility that uses low temperatures to help aid recovery has been brought to the AJ Bell Stadium as part of the clubs’ preparations for their Easter Monday games.
Huddersfield are hosting Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, while the Red Devils travel to Leeds Rhinos.
And Giants chief Paul Anderson knows how valuable this pooling of resources between today’s opponents could be.
“Player welfare is important, and the more we can look after our players, the better,” said Anderson.
“We’re very fortunate that a cryotherapy chamber is at Salford and we’re in a position to share it with them.
“All we need now is for (Salford owner) Dr Marwan Koukash to pay for us to use it, because he’s obviously not short of any cash, and it’s £300 a piece to use it!
“There’s no doubt the chamber is a vitally important resource, because it’s the best way of helping aid a body’s recovery.
“The next few days is all about rest, recovery massage and a light run-through before throwing the players back out onto the field.
“The chamber is the best way of guaranteeing they’ll be in the best possible shape for Monday as they can be.”
