Leeds have sold over 4,000 tickets already for this game so a sizable following heading over, may be more like a Leeds home game!

 

Think we will edge this one, we are a different animal when it comes to knockout matches and we are showing far more consistency this year in general. Will be tough but as long as we can negate Brough's kicking game then think we'll win.

 

Leeds by 8

Giants have had the rub over Leeds in recent games, and like Leeds - this is the competition they really really want to win

Last week the Giants clearly had one eye on this game from top to bottom.

I can't call it at all, heart & hope says Giants by 10.

All I really really care about is that it's one of the games of the season and a bumper crowd at the John Smiths Stadium, if that happens the RL wins, which will do for me

Huddersfield, by 4.

Rhinos by 4,Danny Brough to have a melt down again for abusing the officials and get sent off this time. :D  :D  :D

A far more likely scenario is that Sinfield will tantrum at the ref until a Giants player is incorrectly sent off.

There's a magnificently pernickity argument brewing on RLFans over seating allocations and where you can sit with an "Unreserved" ticket.

Foolish in the extreme when there will be 10000 spare seats...

Not in the areas allocated to Leeds fans ;)

Anyway, as of yesterday, Leeds had sold 4,830 tickets through our ticket office. I know of Leeds fans buying tickets straight from the Giants too so there should be a very good atmosphere in the Stadium today. I think they are expecting 10,000.

The Leeds fans are all in the rubbish seats though ;)

Giants have sold about 6k and crowd over 10k expected.
