St Helens vs Giants by MagicRat
Just two points separate these two teams with St Helens in third place in the league and Huddersfield just one place behind in fourth. This is an important game for both teams as they look to cement their places in the top four and try to chase down the top two, Wigan and Leeds.
St Helens are coming off an embarrassing defeat against Leeds last week which their coach described as a "debacle", therefore I expect them to be a much tougher team to beat this week, especially in front of their home fans. Just three of their last eight matches have gone over 46.5 points and crucially they have the second best defence in the league, especially at home where they have conceded 20 points or less in each of their last seven home matches.
Huddersfield come into this match in great form having won their last three matches, all of which have actually gone over 46.5 points, however, Huddersfield possess the best defence in the league.
I expect this match to be a tight affair as the result of this match is vital for the ambitions of both teams, therefore I think the defensive qualities of both teams will come to the fore just like they did earlier in the year when the two teams met and St Helens won a low scoring game 11-8. This was just one of many low scoring games between these teams as just one of their last six meetings has gone over 46.5 points.
