Huddersfield face early injury worries

Click to follow

Huddersfield face a shortage of props for the new Super League season following a training ground injury to Larne Patrick.

The front-rower broke his wrist and has had to have an operation that will rule him out for the first few weeks of the campaign. Eorl Crabtree is also recovering from surgery, while Tony Tonks is suspended.

Giants' coach, Nathan Brown, will also start without two other forwards, David Fa'alogo and Luke O'Donnell, with long-term injuries.
