Huddersfield Giants have England winger Jermaine McGillvary back to replace the injured Aaron Murphy, while half-back Martyn Ridyard and hooker Adam O'Brien are also available after sitting out the defeat at Salford Red Devils but Seb Ikahihifo is out through concussion. Jordan Rankin makes his home debut and winger Gene Ormsby is back in the reckoning.

Widnes Vikings, who are still without the suspended Rangi Chase, are set to switch Corey Thompson to full-back in the absence of Rhys Hanbury and Danny Craven while Brad Walker comes in for second rower Tom Olbison and Greg Burke and Manase Manuokafoa are vying to replace the injured Eamon O'Carroll.
