SL Preview: Wakefield v Huddersfield

Danny Brough will move in to the top 10 Super League goal kickers of all-time with four goals against Wakefield this Sunday.

The Giants go to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium chasing a fourth successive victory, while the Wildcats have recorded back-to-back wins over Hull KR and London.

Peter Fox and Andy Raleigh will make their 150th Super League appearances if selected by Richard Agar, and Huddersfield’s Eorl Crabtree could clock up his 250th.

Huddersfield’s former Wakefield full back Scott Grix needs two tries to reach a century of career touchdowns.

Wakefield 19-man squad: Mathers, Fox, Collis, L Smith, Cockayne, Sykes, T Smith, Poore, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Wood, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Mellars, Annakin.

Huddersfield 19-man squad: Grix, George, Cudjoe, Wardle, McGillvary, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Ferres, Faiumu, Patrick, Chan, Murphy, Cording, Fairbank, Mullally, Johnson, Fielden.

Prediction: Wakefield will provide a test to the Giants but Paul Anderson‘s men should maintain their record – away win.
