Theo is a Giant plus

Huddersfie­ld v Salford

-

Today, 1pm

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.”
