THE TEAM NEWS

HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS

  • Huddersfield Giants’ three-match winning streak in Super League was ended as they were blown away by Wakefield Trinity in their last outing and they have had plenty of time to dwell on that after last week’s game was postponed.
  • The Giants were hit by COVID-19 issues which meant that their game with Wigan Warriors could not go ahead but they have had the all-clear to resume training and they will look to put that defeat to Trinity behind them in this clash.

21-man squad: Ashall-Bott, Cogger, Cudjoe, Edwards, Gaskell, Golding, Greenwood, Hewitt, Jones, Lawrence, Leutele, McGillvary, Michael, O’Brien, Senior, Sezer, Trout, Ja. Wardle, Jo. Wardle, Wilson, Yates

Unavailable: Jack Ashworth, James Cunningham, Matty English, Darnell McIntosh, Chris McQueen

SALFORD RED DEVILS

  • Salford Red Devils suffered yet another heavy loss as their season went from bad to worse with defeat against Hull KR last week and the pressure is surely now on Richard Marshall with his side winning just one of their nine Super League games so far this season.
  • Last week’s 40-4 reverse came on the back of conceding 62 against Warrington Wolves and having lost their last six games in all competitions, the Red Devils will have their work cut out to return to winning ways here.

21-man squad: Ackers, Atkin, Burgess, Burke, Davies, Escare, Greenwood, Ikahihifo, Johnson, Lannon, Livett, Luckley, Mossop, Ormondroyd, Patton, Roberts, Sarginson, Sio, Taylor, Wells, Williams

Unavailable: Matty Costello, Kevin Brown, Pauli Pauli, Danny Addy, Krisnan Inu, Tui Lolohea, Kallum Watkins

THE PREDICTION

Ian Watson will come up against his former side for the first side since departing for Huddersfield Giants. His new club have been hit by COVID-19 issues recently but they appear to have put those behind them ahead of this contest. They will be looking to get back on track after losing for the first time in four Super League games last time out against Wakefield Trinity. Salford Red Devils have not had the best of times under new head coach Richard Marshall having won just once in the league so far this year and with their performances continuing to underwhelm, another loss is on the cards for them here.
