Huddersfield v Wakefield: 21-man squads and injury update

Huddersfield and Wakefield have both announced their squads for Sunday afternoon’s round 18 clash at the John Smith’s Stadium (KO 3:00pm).

The Giants are in a decent run of form, having notched back-to-back wins in their last two games, including a 34-16 victory over Castleford on Monday.

Trinity, meanwhile, saw their fixture against Salford postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests in the Red Devils’ camp.

Their last win came against Wigan at the end of June, before they suffered four straight defeats in July.
