Huddersfield suffer major blow ahead of St Helens clash as Jake Connor decision made

Huddersfield Giants have been hit by a big blow ahead of their clash with Champions St Helens with no Tui Lolohea in their line up for the clash live on Sky Sports.

This means that Will Pryce drops to fullback having played in the halves last week.

As consequence, centre Esan Marsters moves into the halves alongside Olly Russell.

Some might question why Jake Connor, who will make his second debut for the club tonight after returning following six seasons at Hull FC, isn’t taking over in the halves but he is only fit enough for the bench.

There are further changes in the backline with Ash Golding moving to the wing after starting on the bench last week.

Sam Halsall makes his debut after joining from Wigan Warriors whilst Innes Senior makes his first appearance of the season with Leroy Cudjoe the 18th man.

Harvey Livett meanwhile replaces the injures Josh Jones in the backrow with Harry Rushton on the bench again.

St Helens on the other hand are boosted by the return of Konrad Hurrell, Will Hopoate (both of whom start at centre with Mark Percival absent) whilst Sione Mata’utia also returns from suspension.

The game kicks off at 20:00 and Sky Sports begin coverage on Sky Sports Arena from 19:30.
