Sadly, Saints, unless Brown plays 13 hookers.

Saints by 16 Manu to get a few on his home debut unless Hudds target Turners defence.

How long has Sky been in charge of our viewing schedule? And you have to ask?

Saints by few

Possibly. I'm not so confident. We have had a good pre-season, but last time Hudds visited they didn't have any of their first choice packmen out and so it's hard to know what impact their return will have.

It's always your year, it's always your year, just like the last, it's always your year.


Saints to beat the BIG pack of Huddersfield by 18 in a positive game.

Saints to win this one I think.

Brown will still be focussed on the job. He doesn't get bored and start tinkering until Round 12 or so.

That's me.  I'm done.

He will need to tread very carefully in that respect at Saints. My club fires coaches who ruffle the feathers of the senior players!

Saints will win. We never win at Saints.

They'll win by 2-3 scores too I think, though I'll also confidently say more than one will be down to some shocking VR calls - and I'm prepared to bet good money the game will be reffed in a different way to Friday nights.

A Brown coaches club will get off to a flier. It will be very interesting to see if he manages to resist tinkering with a winning team...

People writing the Giants off could be in for some surprised. Much tougher team than last season, the massive weakness in the pack has been sorted and with Grix back at full back out spine is much more rigid.

Sum of it is we might not come out all guns blazing this season, but we'll have some ammo left after Easter for once...

Saints under Brown to cruise home this one, weve stuffed 2 teams already in pre season, and i know they are only friendlies but still seems like were playing attacking attractive rugby again. Saints to start with a bang and set the marker high and win by 20 plus

I think that Saints will win this.

It will be interested to see how P Anderson's game plan plays out.

80 minutes of Brough behind a big pack will strain quite few defences this season.

We hope so.

Think Bradford Bulls in their glory days and their four props causing mayhem............. :unsure:

Some forward power in that squad!

Creativity may be a difficulty for Huddersfield this season.
