Winning home games is a minimum for teams wanting to challenge

By how much is another matter...

I can see this being another tough one, Giants forwards will have to step up from last week but you can only play as well as the other team let you, Wakefield pack were good in the second half and i expect Bradford to be just as tough, we have had some right maulings from the Bulls over the years ,but then so have most teams, We need to defend like we did against Wigan and we will be ok, Bulls showed what they are capable of end of last season, i think they still are, should be a very good game.

As Baloo has said in't local rag - respect possession is the key and patience, no trying to win the game on every pass

Hudd by 8 - been pleasantly suprised by Huddersfield so far, I thought they'd struggle this season.

Always hard to tell how a team will fare under a new coach, especially when said coach is a 'rookie', but Baloo talks a good game and has produced them so far. He's a good guy and I hope he does well to be honest, though a bit of adversity (as a learning experience?) might be beneficial this weekend.... B)

Paul Anderson and Barry Macdermott must be the men with the most changed image in the game. You'd think that both had been gentle giants as players, when, as I remember, both started off as being nasty customers.

I remember being very dubious about the Bulls taking Paul Anderson on, but he was a brilliant signing. I can't even remember him getting yellow-carded.

Bad tendon injury in a friendly preseason unfortunately - hopefully he'll be back to his best and showing he should be considered for the England squad

Can't see past a Giants win here.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Can't honestly remember Ando being particularlty bad, other than his injury record, before joined the Bulls but Barrie Mac certainly had a bad reputation and I remember a few pretty nasty clashes between him and namesake Brian and then Stu Fielden after Brian retired, usually when Barrie had bother keeping his arms below horizontal. I seem to remember that discipline (or lack of) was probably the main reason he left Wigan and moved to Leeds along with the fact they had plenty of other good forwards who weren't giving away quite so many penalties. Agree he's changed though, he talks pretty well these days.
