Brough, the reigning Super League Man of Steel, is the only player to have started all 20 of the Giants' matches this year but is facing a spell on the sidelines after picking up head and ankle injuries in the 36-10 home defeat by Salford last Saturday.

Scotland's World Cup captain left the field on the hour clutching his jaw after being the victim of a late and high tackle from Salford forward Lama Tasi.

Coach Paul Anderson is set to switch Luke Robinson back into the halves alongside Kyle Wood and give a first appearance of the season to 18-year-old hooker Kruise Leeming in the continuing absence of first-choice number nine Shaun Lunt with a nagging calf strain.

In the absence of Brough, second row forward Brett Ferres will captain the team against his old club and his England team-mate Leroy Cudjoe will take on the goal kicking duties.
