Leigh v Huddersfield: 21-man squads and injury update

Leigh and Huddersfield have both announced their 21-man squads for Sunday afternoon’s round seven fixture at Leigh Sports Village (KO 3:00pm).

The Centurions remain in search of their first win, having fallen to a seventh defeat in all competitions against Wigan on Monday in front of their returning home fans, losing 30-16.

A number of Giants fans will be in attendance on Sunday, as they cross the Pennines to cheer on their team for the first time in over 14 months.

Ian Watson’s side come into the game on the back of a huge 26-20 victory over Warrington.

Leigh Centurions

Leigh make two changes, with off-season Australian signing Brendan Elliot in contention to make his Super League debut after recovering from a knee injury. Also recalled is Adam Sidlow, with Alex Gerrard and Nathan Mason (finger) dropping out. Ben Flower (hamstring), Joe Mellor (hamstring), Blake Wallace (head) and Keanan Brand (hamstring) remain unavailable.

21-man squad: 1 Ryan Brierley, 2 Matty Russell, 3 Iain Thornley, 4 Junior Sa’u, 5 Lewis Tierney, 9 Liam Hood, 10 Mark Ioane, 11 Ben Hellewell, 12 Jordan Thompson, 13 James Bell, 14 Matty Wildie, 16 Nathaniel Peteru, 17 Jamie Ellis, 18 Matty Gee, 20 Adam Sidlow, 21 Tyrone McCarthy, 22 Craig Mullen, 25 Brendan Elliot, 26 Nathan Peats, 30 Ben Reynolds, 32 Anthony Gelling.

Huddersfield Giants

The Giants are unchanged after last week’s surprise victory and will likely mean halves Lee Gaskell, Jack Cogger and Aidan Sezer will all start in the spine. Jack Ashworth misses out again, as do longer-term absentees Ashton Golding (shoulder) and Joe Wardle (hamstring).

21-man squad: 2 Jermaine McGillvary, 3 Jake Wardle, 4 Ricky Leutele, 5 Darnell McIntosh, 6 Lee Gaskell, 7 Aidan Sezer, 8 Luke Yates, 9 Adam O’Brien, 10 Michael Lawrence, 11 Kenny Edwards, 13 Josh Jones, 14 Matty English, 15 Joe Greenwood, 16 Jack Cogger, 17 Chris McQueen, 19 James Cunningham, 20 Oliver Wilson, 21 Leroy Cudjoe, 22 James Gavet, 25 Owen Trout, 27 Sam Wood.
