Josh Bowden is poised to return after over a year out, while Alex Mellor has overcome injury to feature for Huddersfield. 

Lee Radford has made one change to his 19-man squad after last weekend’s victory over Warrington. Bowden (ACL) could feature, having made his return in a reserve fixture two weeks ago. Jack Buchanan retains his spot, while Jordan Thompson misses out.

Simon Woolford makes just one addition to his squad having named an 18-man squad for last week’s clash with Hull KR. Alex Mellor returns from injury and takes the final place for the Giants.

Messenger’s money-maker: Albert Kelly and Darnell McIntosh to both score anytime is priced at 6/1.
