THE TEAM NEWS
- Huddersfield Giants were edged by Wigan Warriors last week as they failed to make it three straight wins and they will view this as another important matchup as they aim to highlight their top four credentials.
- The Giants were not far off in that game with the Warriors but will need to do better here and in their quest to do so, they look set to be boosted by the inclusion of new signing Jake Connor on what would be his second debut for the club.
21-man squad: Connor, Marsters, Naiqama, Bibby, Lolohea, Hill, Peats, McQueen, Yates, Golding, Rushton, Trout, Ikahihifo, Wilson, Cudjoe, Livett, Russell, Halsall, Senior, Ashworth, Pryce
Unavailable: Jermaine McGillvary (Injured), Joe Greenwood (Injured), Matty English (Injured), Theo Fages (Injured), Josh Jones (Injured)
Questionable: Jake Connor
- St. Helens got back to winning ways as they were able to grind out the victory against Hull FC last week but they are still a long way from their best.
- On another day, Saints would have lost that game with a bounce of the ball going their way at a crucial moment but they will be aided by the return of a handful of players here including Sione Mata’utia and Konrad Hurrell.
21-man squad: Welsby, Makinson, Hopoate, Percival, Bennison, Lomax, Dodd, Walmsley, Roby, Lees, Mata’utia, Lussick, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Sironen, Paasi, Bell, Royle, Hurrell, Ritson, Delaney, Bruines
Unavailable: Morgan Knowles (Suspended), Ben Davies (Injured)
Questionable: Will Hopoate
Huddersfield Giants were narrowly beaten by Wigan Warriors last week and will be keen to get back to winning ways at the first time of asking. The hosts have hopes of finishing in the top four once again this season but will not want to lose too much ground at this early stage of the campaign. St. Helens have started the year in unconvincing fashion after their excellent World Club Challenge success and while there is still plenty more to come from them, their stuttering attack could lead to a low-scoring game with defences on top in this one so expect under 42.5 points to be scored.
