Ashton Golding will miss the start of the Betfred Super League season having suffered a dislocated shoulder in training.
The fullback is out until at least late May, with the 24-year-old needing surgery on the affected shoulder. The club are hoping that surgery will take place this week.
Huddersfield Giants Head Coach, Ian Watson said: “While it’s obviously disappointing that Ashton has sustained this injury, we expect him to make a full recovery and return stronger than ever. We expect to see Ashton return to the field in late-May, but in the meantime we will be working to make sure he improves himself and hits the ground running when he returns to Betfred Super League action.
“Ashton is a strong individual who’s come back better from injury before and last season he was tremendous after his return from injury, showing the Giants fans how good a player he is, and we back him to do the same in recovering this time with the help of our Medical Department.”
