Huddersfield Giants vs Wigan Warriors
The Huddersfield Giants welcome the Wigan Warriors to the John Smith’s Stadium for this round 19 match up from the Rugby Super League in match that will have a massive say on both teams season going forward.
Both Huddersfield and Wigan have shown glimpses of the quality we all know that they have but due to a lack of confidence, belief and consistency, both find themselves stuck in mid-table with one eye over their shoulder towards the relegation scrap.
The winner of this one could perhaps relieve some of that pressure and if over results go their way, the winner could be looking up towards the play-offs – such is the tightness of the Super League in 2019.
Whilst Huddersfield have struggle don the road, there home form hasn’t been too bad, especially in their last 5 matches in which they have won 4 of them.
Wigan’s form has been up and down all season long but there have been signs of improvement on the road..
Due to the inconsistent nature of both of the se 2 teams, this is a difficult match to predict. Both teams have the quality to be far away from the relegation scrap, but both teams will be battling it out to avoid getting dragged back into the lower reaches of the league.
In match we expect to be close throughout, the better defensive performances of the Giants and there improved performances at home could and likely will prove the difference although this is one of those games that could go either way.
