Huddersfield Giants v Hull FC Preview
The Huddersfield Giants take on Hull FC in a West Yorkshire vs East Yorkshire derby match up that has the potential to be an exciting one.
On paper these 2 sides are relatively evenly matched but of course matches aren’t played on paper and the inconsistent nature of both clubs makes this a difficult match to predict as whilst if they both play to their strengths and perform close to their best it could be a tight game that is in the balance throughout but if one team doesn’t show up, as has happened far too often over the past few years with these 2, it could be a one sided game.
On the plus side is the fact that there is so much quality on both sides of the field and both teams have star half backs that can produce match winning performances.
The Giants are struggling at the moment with no wins from their last 5 outings.
Hull FC have won 4 of their last 5 and come into the game fresh after their derby with Hull KR was postponed last time out.
The John Smiths Stadium plays host to this game and whilst it is one of the biggest and best stadiums in Rugby League when full, it can provide a difficult place to play in smaller matches due to lack of atmosphere.
Thankfully that isn’t often the case when a team such as Hull FC are in town as they bring a big following and a vocal backing.
That should give the players the perfect setting to produce an exciting 80 minutes of action.
