Huddersfield For the league

The giants have now played a couple of relatively easy games,
the big test is sunday against Keighley.  I'm sure they well
be tough especially as they lost to Hull.  Although with more
concentration in defence, we should have no problem at home.
Good luck Keighley, hope you only lose by 40 points.  If we
pass this test, then I feel only Hull will beable to stop us.

Wakefield and featherstone just don't have the kind of squad
to cope with the full season, so I don't see them being
serious contenders for the title.  The season may have only
just started, but with only 20 games, any early set back, is
disasterous.

Matt a giants in the game

It's a bit early but it does look like it's going to be Hull or
Huddersfield.  There's already a load of teams with two defeats.  If this
season goes anything like last that means it's probably already too late
for them.  They can't afford to lose anymore.  The two Hull/Huddersfield
games look likely to be the deciders.  Having said that, you did get
Keighley at the end of a week where they'd already lost to Saints and us.
Not the best way to prepare for one of the two biggest away games of the
season.  Also, you've still to play them at Cougar Park.  And don't forget
that we've already played you home and away this season.  3 points to us, 1
point to you if it was the league.  Could this be a repeat of the 79 season
when Hull win the division by winning every single match?  Maybe not!
