INSPIRATIONAL captain Brett Hodgson will lead the Giants into action at Crusaders tomorrow as the speculation increases over a proposed move to Warrington.
Rumours around the Wolves continue to suggest Hodgson will soon be unveiled as a Warrington player for 2011.
Those have further intensified with reports that current Wolves No1 Richie Mathers is looking for a move to Yorkshire, although whether that will be to the Galpharm is not so clear.
But despite the speculation, it isn’t expected to have any major impact on Hodgson or the Giants as they look to chalk up Super League win No8 of the season in Wrexham this weekend.
The clash in North Wales will give the Giants the chance to renew their acquaintance with former chief Jon Sharp, who is the assistant coach to Brian Noble at the Crusaders.
It will be the first time Sharp (pictured) has had the chance to directly help plot the downfall of the club he left in the summer of 2008.
And he is hoping his inside knowledge of a number of Giants players will work to his new side’s advantage.
“I look back on my time there as a success and I really enjoyed it,” reflected Sharp, who spent last season as the director of football at Hull FC.
“I’d like to think I played a part in some of the good things that are happening there now.
“They’ve got fantastic players all over the park and they play with a lot of enthusiasm, but we’re looking forward to it. We’ve been playing really well of late and the boys are looking really sharp.
“We’re determined to make Wrexham a tough place for the opposition to come and play, and I think this is going to be a cracking game.”
