Huddersfield Giants face the Warrington Wolves at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in the Super League tonight. 19:45 KO.
This will hopefully be a good game for Giants and potentially a chance for them to get their second win of the season.
Huddersfield last played against St Helens in the Challenge Cup. This was always going to be a tough game and the Giants did, unfortunately, lose the game with the final score sitting at 23-18.
The Giants’ efforts were not weak by any means and despite the loss, I do still think that this was a robust performance for them.
Huddersfield’s season really started when they beat Leeds Rhinos and we want to see this season stay strong by getting another win today.
Warrington are currently 6th in the table, three places above Huddersfield. From their first five games, the Wolves have three wins, one draw and a loss.
This is a strong start for them and they will be looking to keep their momentum. Going down easy tonight is simply not going to be an option for them.
The last time that Huddersfield and Warrington matched up was late October of last year. Huddersfield lost 19 points to 12.
The game was point to point until just after the second half where Warrington pushed forward and managed to score two tries a conversion and a drop goal to give them the win.
One player which has stood out to me this season for Warrington is Daryl Clark. The Hooker has bagged himself a few tries already this season and does not look like he is going to stop anytime soon.
This is going to be another close game but as we can see from the table so far, Warrington have clearly had the better start to the season.
I do think that both teams are strong in their own way with Huddersfield having put in some impressive if not quite stellar performances. Both teams are going to have to really push for it in tonight’s game.
Having struggled to gain points in the first few weeks, the Giants definitely need as many as they can get, but the overall might and good form of Warrington may prove to be too much for them.
Anything can happen, however, and if Huddersfield continues to put in good performances the results will likely come sooner rather than later. Tonight would be a good place to start.
