I'm in two minds as to go watch this game tonight or not.

The earlier match up this season between these two Giants at the Galpharm was an awe inspiring game which featured the very best defence and attack from both sides, with Huddersfield running out victors by twenty six points to twenty in front of over ten thousand.

This evenings match up has a somewhat somber feel to it with Huddersfield not being in the best of form of late despite a thirty points to twelve home win against Brian Nobles Crusaders last weekend.

While Leeds will want to get back on track following last weeks Hull Kingston Rovers master class as they left Craven Park very much the wounded Rhinoceros.

Could be a good one, could be a scrap for the points with sides looking to climb the table to claim a top four berth.

I'll say Leeds to just edge Fartown by as little as a try.

Where are the Huddersfield supporters?

I'll go as far to say that they have the poorest following out of all the current sides currently occupying the top eight.

Give it a rest will you?

It's about time there was a post limit on this board simply to knock your boring nonsense on the head.

A late change to the referee as Ben Thaler will take charge from Thierry Alibert.

The pa bloke at Headingley makes me laugh, he's so biased towards Leeds yet he does the Challenge Cup and Grand Final games.

Fingers crossed Huddersfield put up a good show as they enter the field.

It will be followed by a further 20+ posts, where he assumes that he is providing a public service as a reporter. Get off your phone, watch the game, lose some weight and get a woman.

Thing is can anyone say what leeds team will turn up? Gives the oppo confidence knowing that the rhinos implode every three weeks. Gwan Hudds.

Leeds Rhinos 0-0 Huddersfield Giants after 09:00 minutes.

Huddersfield down to 12 men after Griffin goes in late on McGuire and from the restart with Leeds declining the easy two points, Sinfield drops the ball.

Huddersfield in trouble early on, down to twelve.

Leeds Rhinos 0-0 Huddersfield Giants after 12:00 minutes.

Leeds score the opening try but it's been chalked off by referee Thaler as a very predictable South stand shows it's disapproval of the ball.

Sinfield drops the ball on the Huddersfield line after they were very fortuitous to be awarded a penalty on the last tackle.

Huddersfield slowly getting back into this game as a contest.

Oh my word, Ben Thaler has given the second forward pass call against Leeds and the south stand look stunned and as I type Huddersfield are given the penalty with six minutes to half-time.

Massive set of six.

Half-time

Leeds Rhinos 6-4 Huddersfield Giants

Great game if not a bit scrappy and ill disciplined (the penalty count stands at Leeds 5-4 Huddersfield) at times, but Huddersfield finish the half on top after Leeds certainly bossed the first twenty minutes.

It's been a game of few chances as you would expect with these two West Yorkshire giants neck and neck in the table.

Huddersfield get us underway for the second forty and it's Leeds who'll have first use of the ball.

Leeds Rhinos 6-8 Huddersfield Giants after 42:00 minutes.

Brough puts the grubber into the corner behind Lee Smith who just stops to let the ball run dead but the chasing David Hodgson touches down right on the dead ball line, referee Thaler consults the in-goal judge who nods his head and the try is given to a shocked stunned silence.

Brough can't convert from the touchline 0/2.

Leeds Rhinos 6-14 Huddersfield Giants after 45:00 minutes.

What a start to the half from the visiting Huddersfield Giants as David Hodgson scores his second as he beats Donald to the corner once again and the Huddersfield supporters on the Western terrace are celebrating as if they have won the Grand Final.

Headingley is shocked and Brough converts his first from out wide 1/3.

Leeds Rhinos 12-14 Huddersfield Giants after 52:00 minutes.

I don't know what's going on at the DW stadium 60 miles west of here but Jesus, both sides are realy going for it now as Leeds force their second drop-out of the game and from the drop-out the Rhinos go out wide down the right and Senior has the ball stolen but the loose ball ends up in the hands of Hall and he will cross in the corner.

Super stuff from Thaler to keep the whistle at bay, as Leeds benefit from great use of the advantage law.

Sinfield converts 2/2 and what a game we have here.

Surely these two can't keep this intensity up as there really battering each other down the middle.

Twenty minutes to go, can the Giants hold on?
