Warrington Wolves vs Huddersfield Giants: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Both these teams have gone against expectations in 2022.

As Warrington struggle to find rhythm, the Ian Watson era at Huddersfield is finally living up to the hype and defying all those who had them pegged for a bottom four spot this year.

Currently in the top four, they can rubber stamp their solid start to the season with a win at Warrington’s expense.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks 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 and BBC’s Super League Show.

Predicted Line-ups

Warrington Wolves
The Wolves have some major questions to solve especially in the spine. With no Stefan Ratchford and Gareth Widdop in the squad, Daryl Powell’s first two options at six are unavailable so young Riley Dean may come into the halves with fellow youngster Josh Thewlis at one. Meanwhile, Powell also has something to address at second-row. Neither Oliver Holmes nor skipper Jack Hughes are available so Ellis Longstaff may take over in the backrow as Powell is forced to turn to youth this week.

Huddersfield Giants
Ian Watson has more positive headaches to solve. In the backs, after impressive performances from Ashton Golding and Louis Senior last week, will Watson recall Ricky Leutele and Jermaine McGillvary to the side or could we see Jake Wardle come into the centres after a long term injury layoff. It could be too soon for Wardle especially with the form of Leroy Cudjoe. Meanwhile, I don’t see Ashton Golding being dropped entirely and should replace the absent Adam O’Brien as the replacement nine. Chris Hill and Chris McQueen will come back into the pack whilst some of the forwards who figured against St Helens could keep their place in the 17.
