THE TEAM NEWS
- Huddersfield Giants made it back-to-back victories as they got the better of Castleford Tigers in a one-sided scoreline but they know this will be a much tougher assignment.
- The Giants will be hoping to continue to impress defensively having conceded just six points in their last two games but will have to deal with a trio of injuries with Joe Greenwood, Theo Fages and Matty English joining the injury list.
21-man squad: Marsters, Naiqama, Bibby, Lolohea, Hill, Peats, Jones, McQueen, Yates, Golding, Rushton, Trout, Ikahihifo, O’Brien, Wilson, Cudjoe, Livett, Russell, Mason, Ashworth, Pryce
Unavailable: Jake Connor (Injured), Jermaine McGillvary (Injured), Joe Greenwood (Injured), Matty English (Injured), Theo Fages (Injured)
Questionable: Kevin Naiqama (Injured)
- Wigan Warriors failed to make it three successive victories as they produced an underwhelming performance to Catalans Dragons last week which saw them suffer a rare home loss.
- Matt Peet will be desperate for his side to produce a response here and he has once again opted to go with the same 21-man squad.
21-man squad: Field, French, King, Wardle, Marshall, Cust, Smith, Singleton, Powell, Byrne, Isa, Farrell, Smithies, Cooper, Ellis, Havard, Pearce-Paul, Mago, O’Neill, Miski, Nsemba
Unavailable: Ryan Hampshire (Injured), Iain Thornley (Injured)

This could be a brilliant game between two teams with big aspirations this season. Huddersfield Giants host Wigan Warriors with the home side coming into this on the back of successive wins after they claimed a straightforward victory against Castleford Tigers. On the other hand, Wigan will have a point to prove after they failed to fire against Catalans Dragons last week. Both teams are likely to be reliant on their defensive efforts in this game and with that in mind, expect under 42.5 points to be scored in this one.
