One of Super League’s brightest young stars returns

Two teams who won’t be best pleased with how it went for them at the Magic Weekend meet this week.

Huddersfield Giants were thumped by Super League and World Champions St Helens 48-6 despite taking a 6-0 lead.

Meanwhile, Warrington Wolves were beaten by Hull FC despite leading 12-0.

The Wolves subsequently ended the week no longer in top spot as they continue to struggle for consistency after an eight game winning run ended.

They have lost the last two and will hope to turn things around against Huddersfield live on Sky Sports on Saturday.

The team news is now in.

Daryl Powell has again named Dean Riley in his squad after recalling him from his loan spell at Featherstone Rovers.

Josh Drinkwater is included after a late injury scare last week.

Unsurprisingly there is no Joe Philbin after his injury whilst Josh McGuire begins his huge 12 match ban.

As for Huddersfield, Jermaine McGillvary is still absent as is Josh Jones and Ash Golding.

Olly Russell, one of the league’s best young halfbacks, returns with Ian Watson hinting that one of their star players could be dropped in the shape of Jake Connor, Tui Lolohea or Theo Fages.

Adam Milner is again set to feature after joining from Castleford Tigers.
