Warrington and Huddersfield are both boosted by the return from injury of key men ahead of their meeting at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday.

Huddersfield welcome back Jake Mamo, who was injured in the game against Widnes back in March which was the last time the Giants tasted victory.

For Warrington, big back-rower Ben Murdoch-Masila hasn’t played since Easter Monday due to a knee problem.

The Wolves also welcome back a number of players having rested them for last weekend’s Challenge Cup win over Bradford.

Huddersfield also bring back Michael Lawrence and Jared Simpson, with Shannon Wakeman, Adam Walne and Innes Senior dropping out.

Chris Thorman continues to take interim charge of the Giants, who sacked Rick Stone last month.
