THE TEAM NEWS

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Akauola, Austin, Charnley, D. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Davis, Goodwin, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Livett, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Ratchford, Tasi, Westwood

Unavailable: Kevin Brown, Jake Mamo, Jason Clark

  • Warrington bounced back from their defeat to Salford on Good Friday by hammering Hull KR on Easter Monday as the Wolves ran in 54 points with the Wolves opening up a four-point gap in second place.

  • Josh Charnley was carried off in the Wolves' win over Hull KR and is a doubt for this game but has been named in the 19-man squad whilst Ben Currie will return in the second row having been rested on Monday.

  • Jason Clark has dropped out of the squad but Ben Westwood is likely to come back in after he was afforded a rest on Monday too with Sitaleki Akauola retaining his place having impressed against Hull KR.

HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS

Head Coach: Simon Woolford

Squad: Clough, English, Frawley, Hewitt, Lawrence, Leeming, Matagi, McGillvary, McIntosh, Mellor, Murphy, O’Brien, Russell, I. Senior, L. Senior, Ta’ai, Uate, Jo. Wardle, Ja. Wardle

Unavailable: Leroy Cudjoe, Dale Ferguson, Adam Walne, Oliver Roberts, Lee Gaskell, Sebastine Ikahihifo, Jordan Turner

  • Huddersfield managed to claim an important win over London on Easter Monday to give themselves some breathing space at the foot of the table but face a tough trip to Warrington as they look to back that up.

  • The Giants made several changes to their side for the London clash but should be able to recall the likes of Darnell McIntosh and Akuila Uate after they were rested against the Broncos.

  • Louis and Innes Senior both come into the 19-man squad along with Sam Hewitt with Jordan Turner dropping out with a knock whilst Scott Grix and Jon Luke Kirby have not been selected by Simon Woolford.

THE PREDICTION

Warrington got back to winning ways on Easter Monday as they avoided three-straight defeats when they demolished Hull KR. They now host a Huddersfield side who just came out on top against London but will need to greatly improve to take anything from this game. The Wolves will look to start quickly to build on last week’s win and with the Giants still missing plenty of talent from their line-up, a slow start for them could be costly with Warrington capable of running up a big score.
