Huddersfield Giants face the Leigh Centurions at the John Smith’s Stadium this Sunday in the Betfred Super League, 3 pm K.O.
The season has nearly come to a close for Huddersfield, and after a campaign of ups and downs, there is only one game left to play.
The Giants will be facing up against recently relegated side Leigh Centurions. So far this season the Centurions have only won two games, giving them a total of four points for the whole season.
This is very unfortunate for them as their team is not all that bad and if you were to see them play, I do not believe that they look like they have only managed to win two games so far this season.
Huddersfield previously played Catalan Dragons where they got a solid win against the top of the table side. This was probably one of Huddersfield’s best performances all season and a game which they are going to be able to look back on and see what capabilities they have as a team.
The last time that the Giants and Leigh met was back in May where Huddersfield managed to get a really good win against the side. The final score was 44-6 to the Giants and it was a well-deserved victory.
Leigh kicked off the game with an early try but after that, it was a total takeover from Huddersfield scoring 7 tries in the game.
Huddersfield were expected to win the game, and this is exactly what happened. But Leigh’s overall performance was not that bad and if you were to disregard the scoreline I do not think they played all that bad.
It was the small mistakes that cost them the game and the reason the scoreline was as heavy as it was.
One player to watch this weekend for Leigh is Ryan Brierly, this player has himself a total of 10 tries so far this season despite the number of losses that Leigh has had. He has stood out and is a brilliant player.
After Huddersfield’s massive win at the weekend, it would be nice if they could hold this momentum and get a win for their last game of the season at the weekend.
Leigh has had a really bad run this season, but they won’t just be giving this win away, so it is important that the Giants go into this game like they would go into any other game and make sure that they get the win and end the season on a perfect note.
