With the extended period of lovely hot weather, could Sunday be the survival of the fittest ??


If so, my money's on the wires

Would like to know people's thoughts?

I dont know, the Giants have toughed out a few games this season with 12 men on the field - last round of the cup for example...

I'd take any of the pots on offer this season, I'll get picky when we've won one ;)

That said I think whoever wins on Sunday is going to go on and lift that famous old trophy

Hudds are a fairly young team and this may have an impact in the conditions, if they can play a quick game. On the other hand Wire have more creative players with experience of big games and winning trophies, so who knows how it will go

 

I'm looking forward to this. I enjoy watching Wire play, so here's to a cracking game. Have said that I'll take a one point win in a dour arm wrestle.

Hudd by 4 in a low scoring snoozathon with Ray French under the impression they're playing at Wilderspool.

I think we'll see a repeat of the semi when Wire were far too strong. Everyone's tip for the treble and rightly so. Wire's top side is the strongest in the league. The Giants may well win the LLS without the distraction of 2 extra games.

 

 

I don't know anyone tipping them for the 'treble' ?

Warrington Wolves and Huddersfield Giants will go head-to-head in the Tetley's Challenge Cup Quarter Final this Sunday afternoon at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, 4.15pm.
The sides have met twice already this season with the Wolves winning both encounters but there is not much separating the two teams this year sitting just one point apart in second and third on the Super League table.
Recent times have seen the Wolves lift three Challenge Cup trophies in the last four years and each year Warrington have played Huddersfield on the way: 2009 Final, 2010 Fifth Round and 2012 Semi Final.
Wolves' head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith said: "Huddersfield are a dangerous team. They have performed well in Super League this year and they are experiencing their most consistent season so far and they'll certainly be a team that we need to concentrate for the full 80 minutes against. They've got some facets of their game that they are very good at and we need to make sure we handle that as best we can and hopefully try to exploit some areas that aren't their strength."

It has the makings of a blinder. Would have made a good final.....

The heat is bound to be a factor so a strong kicking game is crucial.

Looking forward to seeing how Brough goes in a big game like this.

Enjoy!!

Another game that could go either way. Too hard to call. Would prefer a Huddersfield win, just to guarantee a different finalist!

Nah, We'll win, don't worry, just enjoy a great game of rugby.

May the best team win.


















I'd rather lose at the 1/4 than the semi or the final.


I'm impressed with you lot this year and as wellsy says, the cup needs new finalists.

We need to win one of three this year, if rather do it sooner than later lol

Just hope the Giants can perform on this stage against Wire and the two teams do the game proud :)

It's going to be a classic I can feel it. Brough drop goal in the dying minutes of the game to win it for the giants.
