PAUL ANDERSON expects Gene Ormsby to make up for lost time when he returns to the Giants fold for tomorrow’s Super League XXI home basement battle against Leeds.
The Warrington winger moved to Huddersfield on a month’s loan three weeks ago but has featured in just one game at Hull FC.
He wasn’t allowed to play against his parent club a week later and then missed out on last Thursday’s side at Wigan.
Giants chief Anderson has revealed Ormsby has found that frustrating.
But he’s confident the powerful three-quarter will come up with the right response against the reigning Super League champions in tomorrow’s John Smith’s Stadium derby duel (8.00).
“Gene will play on the wing this week, and I know how much he’s looking forward to getting back out there,” confirmed Anderson.
“We obviously brought him in to play, so for him not to feature in the past few weeks has been frustrating for him, I can understand that.
“But after the way everyone played to beat Warrington the other week, it was only right we kept faith with the same team at Wigan the following week.
“Things are a little different this week, so Gene will get his chance again, and I expect him to do very well for us, particularly after the events of the past few weeks.
“I like Gene as a player – he brings a lot to us with his game – and I like the way he is around the place. I know how determined he is to put in a strong display tomorrow night.”
