GIANTS chief Jon Sharp admits he is struggling to confirm his 20-man squad for the weekend trip to Catalans Dragons
All 17 players who performed so strongly in Sunday’s 50-16 Super League thrashing of Hull KR emerged unscathed.
Missing were prop Keith Mason, who was 18th man, while Rod Jensen and Thomas Hemingway were in good form for the reserves.
On top of that, Jamahl Lolesi is available again after serving a two-match suspension.
And Sharp admits that having to decide who misses out on the trip to the South of France is not going to be easy.
“As a coach, this is always one of the toughest times,” said Sharp.
“But it is obviously far more desirable than scratching around for a side!
“I was delighted with the way all 17 players performed against Hull KR.
“And I also know how desperate they all are to keep hold of their places for this Saturday.
“This is another big game for us, because we’re determined to build up some momentum on the back of last week’s win.
“And I hope that having such good competition for places will make a massive difference this weekend.
“This will be a tough game, but the players are already relishing the challenge.”
Meanwhile, Hull KR centre Ben Cockayne faces the possibility of being banned for up to six matches when he appears before the RFL disciplinary committee tonight.
He is alleged to have struck with his forearm off the ball during his side’s defeat at the Giants and, in a separate charge, is also accused of making a dangerous tackle.
