Match Preview

Widnes Vikings give debuts to centre Tom Armstrong and second rower Tom Olbison but they start the campaign without stand-off Joe Mellor and props Manase Manuokafoa, who is suspended, Eamon O'Carroll, Jack Buchanan and Alex Gerrard.

Huddersfield Giants include new signings Shannon Wakeman, Alex Mellor, Dale Ferguson, Lee Gaskell and Paul Clough in their 19-man squad, with Gaskell vying with Darnell McIntosh for the full-back role in the absence of the injured Jake Mamo. Prop Sam Rapira is the Giants' only notable absentee.
