Huddersfield Giants v Leeds Rhinos Preview
The Huddersfield Giants welcome the Leeds Rhinos for a West Yorkshire derby that is always full of excitement and full of action.
These 2 clubs have given us some great matches and great memories down the years and whilst they probably won’t be battling it out over the League Leaders Shield again for some time, we are sure we will get plenty of talking points and must see action in this one.
Whilst these 2 near neighbours may have a rivalry as been 2 Yorkshire teams, there isn’t the same level of rivalry as the Giants have the Braford and Halifax or the Rhinos with Braford, Wakefield and Castleford but that is not to say that bragging rights and local pride don’t come into during the 80 minutes of action.
Both teams have players who have played for the opposition which always gives them a boost and an extra incentive to perform.
The match is always one of the biggest attendances of the season for the Giants, which gives it a big game feel and the players rarely let us down in that regard.
The John Smith’s Stadium is home to the Huddersfield Giants and plays host to this game.
The stadium can be simply too large for the Giants on a regular match day and that can often lead to a flat atmosphere but when there is a big crowd in attendance the ground is a great place to watch and play a game of Rugby League.
Thankfully for both sets of players and for us fans, when Leeds are in town there is a big following in attendance for both teams and that creates a great atmosphere and one that helps make the players give their very best.
