Huddersfield Giants vs St Helens: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Huddersfield and St Helens meet in what could be described as the game of the round and potentially a dress rehearsal for this year’s Challenge Cup Final.

After dropping a point at Leeds, Huddersfield will want to remind the league that they can compete with the likes of St Helens at the top by taking their outstanding comeback against the Rhinos and turning it into a complete performance.

The Saints will be looking to use this game as a statement to demonstrate that they’re a cut above the rest having already beaten one challenger to their crown on Friday in their derby win over Wigan.

Kick-off time and TV channel:

The game will kick off at 15:00.

There will be no live TV coverage of the game but highlights will be available on Super League’s YouTube channel.

Predicted Line-ups:

Huddersfield Giants
Ian Watson will be forced into a number of changes with Theo Fages, Owen Trout, Chris McQueen and Matty English out. Oliver Russell will come into the halves for Fages, Oliver Wilson will start at prop with Oliver Roberts completing the Oliver trio by filling in the backrow. Michael Lawrence will also return to the side on the bench and there could be an appearance for Sam Hewitt amongst the subs. After a great performance off the bench against Leeds, Ashton Golding will keep his spot as replacement nine.
