Huddersfield Giants v Salford Red Devils

The Huddersfield Giants welcome the Salford Red Devils to the John Smiths Stadium for this round 11 match up from the Rugby Super League in a game that could have a massive say on battle to avoid the bottom 4 in the league.

The Giants go into the round 2nd bottom in the table where they are 1 place and 1 point behind the Red Devils but with just a further 2-point gap to Widnes in 8th, a win in this one could be all that either side need to turnaround their season and it will certainly keep them in the hunt for the top 8.

A win would also end a poor run of form for both teams and could see them keep off of bottom spot as the Giants are just 1 point ahead of Catalans with the Red Devils just 2 off of bottom.

Form

Huddersfield have just 1 point from their last 5 outings which was a draw against Leeds at home.

Salford have won 2 of their last 5 outings but both of those came at home.

Team News

The injury hit Huddersfield welcome back Ryan Hinchcliffe and Danny Brough but they are still without Jake Mamo, Jermaine McGillvary and Leroy Cudjoe- amongst others.

Niall Evalds is back for Salford, as is Logan Tomkins. George Griffin replaces Luke Burgess.

Prediction

This is one of the trickier ties to predict this round as both teams have a number of issues on and off of the field.

The 2 competition point son offer could prove vital come the end of the season for both teams, but with the line ups looking evenly matched, it will come down to which team take their chances on the day.

You are also looking for that one in form player to make the difference and that puts the result the way of the Red Devils.

In Rob Lui, they have a creative player coming into top form and with Evalds back at full back, he can concentrate solely on creating try’s and organising his team to victory.
