Ian Watson reveals flu has ravaged the Huddersfield Giants camp ahead of Wakefield Trinity clash

Over a gruelling Easter schedule, there is perhaps nothing worse than adding to the physical and mental stress with a virus.

Well, that’s what Huddersfield Giants have had to contend with in recent days due to an outbreak of flu plaguing the John Smith’s Stadium.

For head coach Ian Watson, it’s been difficult to manage but that his team are raring to go for tomorrow night’s away clash at Wakefield Trinity.

“We’ve obviously had the bans, couple of niggles and we’ve had a little bit of flu running through the camp and it’s been a little bit challenging, but we’ve had all the boys in today,” Watson said.

“Catalans had something similar a week ago and I think it’s something that everyone will have to deal with along the weeks but it’s bit us in the last week from the Warrington game onwards.

Watson also gave an update on halfback Theo Fage who has been out of the Giants team in recent weeks due to concussion.

“He has been training all the time, he looks good, really good.

I’m happy to have him back and he’s all good to go.”
