Huddersfield Giants vs Wigan Warriors: Team news and injuries as Theo Fages confirmed blow for Ian Watson

HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS host Wigan Warriors on Friday night hoping for yet another good night at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The Giants thrashed Castleford Tigers, 36-6, last week without being utterly convincing whilst Wigan went down to Catalans Dragons at home.

It’s been a mixed bag for Matt Peet’s men, who have now won two of their four opening games whilst Huddersfield have two wins out of three to their name.

Team news and injuries

Huddersfield will be without Theo Fages and Joe Greenwood with the duo suffering injuries in the win over Castleford. However, Kevin Naiqama is set to return after missing the past few weeks with injury, with Owen Trout and Seb Ikahihifo also making the 21-man squad.

Wigan are once again unchanged as Matt Peet looks for a response from the defeat to Catalans.
