Hodgson out for a month

Former Wests Tigers skipper Brett Hodgson has been sidelined for at least a month after suffering ankle ligament damage in Huddersfield's 14-10 home defeat by Warrington on Sunday.

The Huddersfield fullback and captain played on for about 25 minutes before realising the severity of the injury he had suffered to his left ankle.

Hodgson, 32, scored 88 goals and 220 points last year in his debut season in Super League, helping Huddersfield to a third-place finish in the table as well as picking up the league's Man of Steel award.

Hodgson has already secured two man-of-the-match awards in the Giants' wins over Bradford and Hull KR this season but missed their defeat at Hull with a back problem.

"This is hugely disappointing but I'd rather be injured now than towards the end of the season when the key issues could be settled," he said.

Leroy Cudjoe will once more switch from the wing to deputise for his captain at Wakefield on Saturday, with Jamahl Lolesi expected to return to the side on the wing after being rested against Warrington.
