Ex-Leeds Rhinos back Ashton Golding to miss start of new Super League season - Huddersfield Giants No 1 injures shoulder in training
Golding, who joined Giants from Leeds at the end of 2019, is set to undergo surgery this week and could be sidelined until late-May.
He added: “We expect to see Ashton return to the field in late-May, but in the meantime we will be working to make sure he improves himself and hits the ground running when he returns to Betfred Super League action.
“Ashton is a strong individual who has come back better from injury before. We back him to do the same in recovering this time with the help of our medical department.”
Huddersfield’s new Australian signing Jack Cogger is due to join the squad this week after completing his quarantine on arrival in the UK.
