Luke Robinson misses out for Huddersfield

Huddersfield Giants star Luke Robinson has missed out on selection for the club’s West Yorkshire derby against Leeds Rhinos this Thursday.

Robinson is not included in a Giants squad that is seeking its first win of 2015, following defeats to Hull FC and Wigan in the opening two rounds of the season.

However, long-term injury victim Kyle Wood is back in the squad. Wood had spent time out on dual-registration with Oldham in recent weeks to build up his match fitness, and he will likely be a direct replacement in the Huddersfield squad for Robinson. With no Scott Grix in the squad, Jake Connor will likely continue at fullback.

Huddersfield squad to face Leeds: McGillvary, Cudjoe, Wardle, Murphy, Brough, Crabtree, Lunt, Huby, Ferres, Hughes, Bailey, Lawrence, Kopczak, Wood, Ta’ai, Broughton, Mullally, Ellis, Connor.
