What effect will the loss of O'Donnell have on the Huddersfield squad?

Given the limited number of games LOD played for the Giants owing to injury, I think the main impact is a big wodge off the wage bill;this may be a temporary reduction if a signing is made but it is unlikely to be somebody who would command a wage akin to Luke's.

You could argue that the Giants need players with his type of experience if they are ever going to win a pot though, although it only applies as an argument if they are fit to play.

My guess would be an Aussie half-back no-one's ever heard of.

The Giants need cover at half back, so you may be right.

We may have heard of the half back- Luke Gale for example! ;)

If you cough up enough money then perhaps. But do it properly this time though won't you?! :P

The Giants always do it properly.

A mate of mine who's not one for blowing smoke has got wind that Gale wants to come to the Giants. :D;)

Brough and Robinson are a fantastically balanced half back pairing to me so signing another seems lower priority than Anderson seems to think.

O Donnell was super tough and will be a loss for sure.

I think Hudds are the closest team to breaking into the top four this year but are still a couple of players off being real contenders.

Whoever turns up with the right attitude will win this game. I go for Wigan by less than 6.

I agree. The giants look strong and well balanced. Be a great one for Wigan to win.

Really?

That's interesting. Wigan also having four players practice their kicking

Josh at full back, Gelling on the wing. Rather than Richards... Not the formation you would perhaps expect.

2 tries in 2 minutes, 0-10. about 14 gone.

Is this being played at Huddersfield?

Wigan getting everything from the Ref as usual

Giants keep putting the ball down in good position

Only got it on the radio but it seems pretty even. in fact it sounds like their was a period where Hudds were only getting out of their own half due to penalties...

22-10 FT

Great defense from Giants. Cracking game, with only one score in it though out and a full lenth try right at the hooter as the icing.

Sounds a good game. Was thinking we kicked off at 430, so rather missed our best moments. Shame to lose, but no disgrace to lose to a good Giants team. Still above Saints (thanks FC :)).

Please keep that hushed up because Wiganers think the Saints enjoy all the calls from the ref. :D
