Huddersfield v Wakefield

Really important game in the battle for play off places and one which i expect to be very close. With Rovers losing in France the Giants would sneak into 3rd position with the win. A win for Wakefield and that would see them join the Giants on 22 points.

Its fair to say these are 2 sides most would probably not have expected to be doing so well but both managers, Brown in particular,deserve great credit.

The Giants are one of the best defensive sides in super league and that line speed is second to none. Most of their best performances have come on the road though. Im not totally sure why that is but there has been a number of times this season when punters and the bookies have expected them to easily deal with the so called smaller clubs at the Galpharm but its been a real struggle.

Maybe their style is suited to going away, maybe its the lack of support from the crowd. Whatever it is, Salford controlled the game here winning by 20, Castleford beat them the other week and should have won in the cup game too. The big 2 Saints and Leeds were easy winners here and Hull also took the points. 5 defeats at home for the Giants this season.

Wakefield have won 3 of the last 4. Maybe not wins over top sides but 6 points and some decent form and momentum going into this one. Looking at their squad its almost back to full strength and for once they do look pretty well off for forwards. Obviously thats going to be important as the Giants have a lot of power in their forward line and Wakey have to match that.

This game, in recent years, has been very tight with only 1 score between the sides.

Yes, only a few weeks back the Giants hammered Wakefield by 50 points on their manner. But the Wildcats had lost a number of their best players for that game and had some off field problems in the build up to that game. Brough, Drew and Ferguson will all be playing this time, different side altogether.

Oddly enough, i actually think that hammering will be to the Wildcats advantage and that we will see them fired up for revenge. Players can forget losing, no one forgets losing by half a century and i am sure its been the talk on the training field all week.

I expect a big match from Brad Drew, This will be the 1st time he faces his old side and ofcourse he was a very popular player with Giants fans. He will be desperate to show them what they are missing. All the Wakefield forwards will have to perform, for them to win this game but i believe they will and Moore should make the most carries.

I think this game will be so tight that possibly only a drop goal seperates the sides at time up.
