Huddersfield Giants make two changes as Leigh Leopards look to extend winning run

Friday night sees two teams in contrasting form face off when Leigh Leopards travel to the John Smiths’ Stadium to face Huddersfield Giants.

Huddersfield have lost three in four however they have all been on the road, the sole win during that run coming at home against Catalans.

As for the Leopards they’re on a run of three wins having only conceded 12 points during those three games as well which is even more impressive.

The Leopards have been without young prop Ben Nakubawai due to injury of late, who despite featuring in last week’s 21 man squad didn’t play on the night.

As for the Giants they’ve seen players miss out due to form including veteran winger Jermaine McGilvary, but their main problems lie with injury to their halves Theo Fages and Oliver Russell.

Ian Watson has bolstered his squad with the return of Jake Bibby and Matty English, but McGilvary still misses out suggesting Bibby and Senior could 0perate on the wings.

As for the Leopards they’d been unchanged in their 17 for the last three weeks and their 21-man squad features a lot of familiar faces again.

The omly change sees Aaron Smith miss out and Tom Nisbet takes his place instead.
