Wakefield Trinity Wildcats will travel to the John Smith's Stadium tomorrow to face the Huddersfield Giants in Round 23 of First Utility Super League. (Kick-off 3pm).

New signings Bill Tupou and Scott Moore are named in Brian Smith's 19-man squad and are both in contention to make their debut. Lee Smith is also included and will make his second debut for Trinity, if selected in the match day 17.

Chris Riley, Mickey Sio and Matty Ashurst are also brought back into the 19-man squad having missed out on selection last week.

Giants head coach Paul Anderson brings Kruise Leeming, Jared Simpson, Chris Bailey and Oliver Roberts back into the reckoning, replacing Scott Grix, Joe Wardle, Brett Ferres and Kyle Wood from the squad that beat Catalan last weekend.

Dan Smith is named in Huddersfield's squad and is set to face his former team-mates for the first time, having left Belle Vue for Huddersfield just a fortnight ago.

The Giants have a decent record against the Wildcats and have won the last five meetings. Trinity's last win over Huddersfield was back in 2012 when Lee Smith scored a try in a comfortable 14-35 win. That game was the start of a seven game winning run which saw the Wildcats surge into the top eight.


WILDCATS: Anderson, Annakin, Arundel, Ashurst, Hall, Johnstone, Lyne, Miller, Molloy, Moore, Mullally, Riley, Scruton, Simon, Sio, Smith, Tupou, Walker, Washbrook.

GIANTS: McGillvary, Cudjoe, Murphy, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Huby, Hughes, Bailey, Lawrence, Kopczak, Ta’ai, Broughton, Ellis, Leeming, Mason, Roberts, Simpson, Smith.

Referee: Chris Leatherbarrow
