Wigan Warriors vs Huddersfield Gaints Super League Round 7 Preview


Wigan host an out of form Giants side unable to string consecutive wins together in 2018, coping with the injury of their star player Jake Mamo and facing the ominous prospect of the bottom 4 if the poor performances continue.

Huddersfield and Wigan have a strange 2017 head to head record, Wigan claiming the only win out of the three meetings of these clubs, the other two fixtures were a 19-19 draw and a 16-16 draws. Digging a little deeper though, the 29th of May 2014 was the last time Huddersfield recorded a victory against Wigan, since then these two side have played 11 times, resulting in 9 Warriors wins and 2 draws.

Huddersfield's injury woes continue as they lose another crucial player, Oliver Roberts is sidelined by injury this week, he joins Jake Mamo and Tom Symmonds in the casualty ward, however, the Giants do welcome back Adam Walne, Daniel Smith and Michael Lawerence who are all named in the 19. Joel Tomkins has been deemed fit to play after recovering from a swollen knee, he is named in Wigan's 19 man squad.

I can't see this been the game that Huddersfield end their poor run against Wigan, they were incredibly poor last week and I don't see there being a dramatic change in form or fortunes in the last 7 days, I'm backing the Warriors by a margin of 12+ points.
