Manchester Giants head coach Danny Byrne will be playing his best possible team in the opening pre-season game against USA Select.

The new coach has settled on his roster for the new campaign, with pre-season training already underway.

The traditional exhibition against the touring USA Select team takes place at the Powerleague Trafford Sportsdome on Sunday September 3 (5pm tip-off).

Byrne said: “We won’t be bringing in any extra trialists for this game.

“We’ll be playing the starting team and start to work on our rotations.

“That will give me and Sam the opportunity to look at what worked and what hasn’t, and see what we might need to change ahead of the season starting.”

The USA Select game is being held in aid of the We Love Manchester emergency fund, and there will be opportunities to donate to the fund on the night.

New American signings Austin Rettig and David Kadiri are unlikely to arrive in the country prior to the game, following a delay with their paperwork in the US.

Next weekend, Giants will play in a pre-season tournament in Spain before a friendly away at Sheffield on September 16.
