Team News

Huddersfield Giants made plenty of signings in the off-season but none bigger than Jake Connor.

Connor was brought in and returns to the place where he broke through initially and he was seen as a key piece to push the Giants towards silverware.

Of course Huddersfield missed out in agonising fashion in the Challenge Cup final in 2022 and crashed out of the play-offs.

Connor has yet to play the first game of his second stint at the John Smith’s however Ian Watson has now named him in his 21-man squad to face St Helens on Thursday night.

The return of Connor is huge news for Huddersfield and he’s joined by Sam Halsall and Innes Senior, both included for the first time in 2023.

Josh Jones is ruled out after failing his HIA assessment vs Wigan, with Matty English still not ready for his return.

Huddersfield will be looking to bounce back following their tight loss to Wigan, whilst Saints have got themselves back in the win column after defeating Hull FC.

As for the Saints, they have been boosted by the return of Sione Mata’utia and Konrad Hurrell, both of whom served bans following their loss to Leeds Rhinos.

The pair have served their two-match suspension and will re-join the squad alongside Will Hopoate who appears in the squad for the first time this season.

Ben Davies misses out after Wellens confirmed he would require five to six weeks away with an ankle injury.
