Huddersfield Giants’ Under 16s Scholarship side is ready for the 2016 season.
The Super League club’s youngsters will open their campaign with a trip to Warrington Wolves tomorrow (2.30pm) at Victoria Park.
They then travel to St Helens on Friday, March 11 before hosting Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on Saturday, March 26 at Moldgreen’s DRAM Centre, which will be the venue for all home fixtures.
And the youngsters will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Giants Academy graduate Sam Wood, who was a part of the 16s squad just three years ago. The 18-year-old centre did, of course, make his Super League debut for the claret and cold in the round two clash against Wigan Warriors a fortnight ago.
The 16s squad for this Saturday’s trip to Warrington is: Jack Duggan, Louis Senior, Innes Senior, Jack Cooper, Leighton Davis, Ross Whitmore, Jake Turner, Connor Murphy, Jack Flynn, Tom Hugill, Sam Smith, Drew Judge Clark, Alfie Copley, Billy Westerman, Ben Tibbs, Wojciech Drop, Jordan Lambert, Ellis Broadbent.
