Warrington Wolves vs Huddersfield Giants Super League Round 13 Preview

Huddersfield and Warrington sit at two opposite ends of the spectrum right now, Huddersfield last week scored 4 points, Warrington scored 54 points (against Bradford in League 1), which is fairly fitting of how these two side shape up coming into this game, 1 side scoring a decent amount of points and the other is currently 11th for points scored so far this season.

One of Huddersfield's two wins this season actually came from their last meeting with the Wolves, a 20-6 victory over a slow starting Wolves side. That victory now means that Huddersfield have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between these two sides, however, the Giants haven't beaten Warrington on the road since the 27th of March 2015 leaving them without an away victory over the Wolves in their last 5 attempts.

The most notable returning name in the Huddersfield squad is fullback Jake Mamo, he is named alongside Michael Lawerence and Jared Simpson as the three changes to last week's beaten side, replacing; Shannon Wakeman, Adam Walne and Innes Senior. Ben Murdoch-Masila returns to Warrington's lineup after a lay off caused by medial damage in his knee, Ben Currie however is missing after scans confirmed he would be side-lined for a prolonged period of time.

Warrington Wolves: Sitaleki Akauola, Ryan Atkins, Kevin Brown, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Bryson Goodwin, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, George King, Tom Lineham, Harvey Livett, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Declan Patton, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Morgan Smith, Ben Westwood

Huddersfield Giants: Jake Mamo, Jordan Turner, Aaron Murphy, Lee Gaskell, Sebastine Ikahihifo, Kruise Leeming, Michael Lawrence, Ryan Hinchcliffe, Jordan Rankin, Oliver Roberts, Ukuma Ta’ai, Paul Clough, Daniel Smith, Adam O’Brien, Alex Mellor , Darnell McIntosh, Tyler Dickinson, Sam Wood, Jared Simpson

I'm backing the Wolves to take this win, although Huddersfield have a good recent record against Warrington, I don't think as things currently stand that the Giants are strong enough to down Warrington, especially at the Helliwell Jones, I'm prdeicting Warrington by 13+.
