Huddersfield Giants v Widnes Vikings Preview

Huddersfield will be looking to get their first win of the season after coming up just short against Wigan in round 2. The Giants are still without key players including Captain Danny Brough. Coach Paul Anderson will be looking to keep the same 17 that lost to Wigan with lots of youngsters showing they are up for the challenge. There were many encouraging signs that the youngsters are going to be great stars of the future. Jamie Foster will be looking to build on his return to Super League after scoring on his debut. Jamie Ellis will be using his experience to get the Giants their first win of the season. The club has marketed this Sunday as a Family fun day with lots of pre match entertainment in and around the ground to suit all ages.
Widnes on the other hand will be looking to bounce back after their disappointing loss to Salford last weekend after making such a promising start to the season. Captain Kevin Brown will be looking to get the upper hand over his ex-club after losing to Huddersfield the last time the two teams met. Rhys Hanbury could make his 125th Super League appearance if chosen to feature against the Giants. The Vikings will be looking to repeat their performance against the Rhinos which saw them become the early leaders of the Super League. With excitable players on both teams, this game is a game not to be missed.
