Huddersfield Giants interim boss Chris Thorman has recalled young prop Matty English and could give debuts to half-back Oliver Russell and centre Jake Wardle. They take the places of injured trio Aaron Murphy, Oliver Roberts and Jared Simpson.

Widnes Vikings have hooker Aaron Heremaia, centre Charly Runciman and prop forward Wellington Albert all returning from injury as they look to end a five-match losing run and avenge their home defeat by the Giants.
