Giants looking to make it two in a row against Rovers


Huddersfield Giants are hoping to get consecutive wins for the first time this season as they welcome Hull Kingston Rovers to the John Smiths Stadium tonight.

The Giants beat Widnes Vikings last time out 28-12 at the Select Security Stadium with the boot of Danny Brough proving vital to their success. While the Rovers lost out 18-16 to the previously winless Catalans Dragons.

Huddersfield make one change from the squad that beat Widnes last week with Jordan Turner replacing Michael Lawrence. Turner is a centre and can also play at loose forward.

Hull KR on the other hand, make two changes from their defeat in the south of France as Shaun Lunt is ruled out with a lacerated knee (an injury he picked up in a freak accident at home), and Danny Tickle also drops out. James Donaldson and George Lawler return from dual registration at York City Knights.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm and the referee will be Ben Thaler.
