Tui Lolohea Huddersfield Giants

Huddersfield Giants have included Tui Lolohea in their 20-man squad to take on Hull FC this Friday at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The full-back or half-back has missed the last three games after suffering an ankle injury. His last game came at Newcastle’s Magic Weekend in the 30-18 win over Salford.

He has been included in Ian Watson’s 20-man squad for the visit of Hull in Round 22.

The Giants will be without half-back Oliver Russel due to a Grade B Tripping charge picked up in the win over Warrington. He received a one-match ban.

Leroy Cudjoe also returns having served his suspension.

Hull make two changes

Hull head coach Brett Hodgson has made two changes to his side that defeated Toulouse last Friday. The Black & Whites will be looking to make it a league double over Huddersfield following their 14-6 victory in March.

Connor Wynne returns from his one-match suspension. Chris Satae has also been named after recovering from an ankle injury.

The pair replace young duo Davy Litten and Charlie Severs in the squad.

Hull are without a number of players due to injury. Josh Griffin (quad), Adam Swift (leg), Manu Ma’u (hamstring), Ben McNamara (back), and Cameron Scott (groin) remain on the sidelines. 

Ligi Sao continues to serve his three-match suspension. Harvey Barron keeps his spot following his try-scoring debut in the 30-6 win in France last week. Will Smith, who also scored on that day on his first appearance, has also been included. 

Huddersfield: Pryce, Golding, Lolohea, Fages, Levi, Lawrence, Jones, McQueen, Yates, English, Greenwood, Trout, O’Brien, Wilson, Cudjoe, L.Senior, ISenior, Ashworth, Hewitt, King.

Hull: Connor, McIntosh, Gale, Houghton, Satae, Lane, Lovodua, Evans, Fash, Brown, Johnstone, Wynne, Vulikijapani, Hookem, Taylor, Barron, Laidlaw, Walker, Simm, Longstaff, Smith.
