DARYL Powell has confirmed Matt Dufty will make his Warrington Wolves debut at Huddersfield Giants tomorrow.

The full-back has taken part in three training sessions since arriving from Canterbury Bulldogs earlier this week and has come through unscathed.

As such, he will start at full-back at the John Smith's Stadium in place of Josh Thewlis, who has been left out of the 21.

“Matt will play tomorrow," Powell said.

“He’s been great right from coming in. I went to see him as soon as he got over and he came across really well.

“He’s had three training sessions – his talk is fantastic and he looks really sharp. He’s fitted in great and the boys have taken to him straight away.

"We don’t want to put too much pressure on him but we want him to hit the ground running, play well and show what he’s about.

“From what I’ve seen so far, I’ve been really impressed with him.”

Warrington Guardian:

Powell also confirmed there was no injury involved in Thewlis' omission but that he has merely been "taken out of the firing line."

It means Greg Minikin will retain his place on the right wing having come into the side that lost at Hull KR.

“I think Josh has been class this year, but he’s had a couple of games recently where he’s just been a little bit off his best," Powell said.

“I decided I was going to take him out of the firing line this week. I thought Greg Minikin was pretty good so I decided to leave him in there.

“Josh is a quality player who has a big future at the club, but not being in a 21 isn’t a disaster for him I don’t think.

“It just gets his head out of it a little bit and he can refresh and start looking at getting himself back in the team.”

Warrington Guardian:

In terms of wider changes to the 17, Powell says the Wire line-up will "not be too dissimilar" to the one that faced Hull KR.

However, he says there will be some "adjustments" in an attempt to make the team more defensively robust.

“It won’t be too dissimilar – we want to try and get some consistency in there but clearly, we want to defend better," he said.

“Defensively, we’ve got to get the right team out there at the right times.

“We’re getting ourselves into some pretty good positions in games but haven’t been able to go on with it.

“There’s a little bit of adjustment in there but not too many changes."
