SL Preview: Huddersfield v Bradford

Craig Kopczak is set to face his former club having been included in Huddersfield’s 19-man squad for the home fixture against Bradford on Sunday.

Paul Anderson‘s side will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten record in Super League having won all four games so far.

Bradford meanwhile, will be looking for a response following their 36-10 defeat at home to St Helens last weekend.

Kopczak left the Bulls last season in controversial circumstances when they were facing financial difficulty and contracts were transferred to the new club owners.

Marquee signing Ukuma Ta’ai is also included in the squad and he could be in line to make his eagerly anticipated debut. Losing their places in the side are Stuart Fielden and Josh Johnson.

Bulls coach Francis Cummins has named an unchanged 19-man squad.

Matt Diskin sustained a dead leg against St Helens but has been included.

Huddersfield 19-man squad: Grix, George, Cudjoe, Wardle, McGillvary, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Kopczak, Ferres, Faiumi, Patrick, Chan, Ta’ai, Murphy, Cording, Fairbank, Mullally
