St Helens vs Huddersfield Giants

St Helens welcome the Huddersfield Giants to the Totally Wicked Stadium for this round 18 match up from the Rugby Super League in a game that will have a big say on things at both ends of the table.

Saints have been the dominant side so far this season and are still the big favourites for many to pick up the league and cup double this season but they will be in for a big challenge this round as they face a Giants team who are capable of making life difficult for anybody but for a number of reasons, they just cannot turn good displays into a run of wins.

Saint son the other hand have shown that when they are on form, they are dominant and when they are off form, they can find a way to win, although they do come into this one on the back of a huge shock loss in the capital last time out

Form

Huddersfield have won 2 of their last 5 matches but they those 2 wins have come in their last 3 matches and there 1 loss in that run was by a single point in extra time to Cas.

St Helens have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches, but that 1 loss did come last time out although they are still undefeated at home this season.

Team News

Saints are almost back to full strength after resting players in their loss to London with the England trio of Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson and Alex Walmsley all coming back in but James Roby is out injured.

Huddersfield are without an England international of their own with Jermaine McGillvary injured.

Prediction

At full strength and under normal circumstances, this would be a difficult match for the Giants but with them missing some big names and with Saints coming into this one fired up and looking to put last week behind them, it is difficult to see anything other than a home win and a comfortable one at that.

If the Giants can start strong and capitalise on what could be a small lack of confidence in the Saints squad, a shock could be on the cards but even then, Saints have shown this season that when the going gets tough, they more often than not have an answer.
