Theo is a Giant plus
Huddersfield v Salford
INFLUENTIAL half-back Theo Fages (below) is back for Huddersfield, after six games out with injury.
Giants coach Ian Watson said: “It’s something we need at this point, Theo giving us that experience in managing games. It’s an area where we’ve been found wanting in the last couple.”
The Giants have a superb overall Magic Weekend record – despite the defeat by Wakefield last season in Watson’s debut year.
He said: “The record was awesome until then – hopefully, it was a blip.”
Salford, who beat Wakefield and Warrington in their past two games, have been building today’s clash up as a ‘cup final’.
But former Red Devils boss Watson has bigger targets and said: “We have a hell of a lot to play for. We’ve got to treat it as just another step.”
