Huddersfield have sorted out some internal issues that were one of the things holding back their performances. They still have around 8 of their starting 17 missing but young home produced halves Olly Russel and Will Price have been a bit of a revelation.

Trinity will be much closer to full strength and might even have Tom Johnstone back who normally scores against the Giants. They are still hamstrung by poor coaching and I expect Huddersfield to take a tight game by 8 points

Another good test for the Giants.

As noted above Wakey have been a hard one for us to overcome over the last couple of years.

But with our renowned confidence and attacking play i'm confident that we will have enough to make it 3 from 3.

Giants by 12 (ish).

The ref is James Child. I'll not be there so it will be much less painful.

When does he retire?

Wakey were 18-0 up after less than quarter of an hour.

It's now Hudds 22 Wakey 18.

England RU Coach Eddie Jones : "I spent a bit of time up at Hull and I like the full back there Connor, he's a tough, skilful player"

Jake Connor : "I've never played Union, it doesn't look that hard, you never say never but it looks too boring for me"

Opening quarter was about as bad as it could have been for the Giants, including losing Ollie Russel for the game

After that, some real impressive grit saw the Giants claw the victory out.

Not seen a Giants team with that much will to work for each other in a few years, the fact it was mostly kids from the Academy is even better.

Looks like that’s the Chester contract extension announcement delayed for another week. If and when it ever gets announced there’s gonna be fireworks I tell ya FIREWORKS!!!

I’ve not been on the Chester out team like most but something has to change that performance was a disgrace.

 Up the Trin

Did Liam Kay play hooker? It looked like he was down as that on the teamsheet.

Has he ever played hooker before? I found it strange when you’ve got a regular hooker in Kyle Wood on the bench

Kay started at loose forward I think, I'm not sure

The ref was indeed...not good...but he was equally not good, or baffling. 

The score actually flatters Wakey, in that the Giants couldn't kick a goal today

One huddersfield player must be feeling a bit miffed this evening . Innes Senior should have got the man of match. Without his two fantastic efforts they would not have got their first two try and back into the game. 

I am hoping the Huddersfield club demand his immediate return after such a stunning performance

Kay was Hooker. He was probably one of very few Wakey players who did ok today. I wouldn’t pay most of them in rusty washers and the less said about Chester the better.

Pretty sure Kay covered at 9 against Saints earlier in the season, admittedly due to injuries but he did well enough.

Played a blinder did Innes, he should’ve been taken off at HT and told his services were no longer required at Wakefield, I’m sure he’d have found his way into the home dressing room.

Even at 18-0 down I felt we would win yesterday and we did.

Wakey in my view were very poor, not that we were much better.  There second try was their highlight of the match but from there i don't really remember them troubling our defense too much.

A lot has been said recently of Watson's processes and plans etc and yet again they came to the front yesterday. We played a conservative game for the most but when we needed to we put it out wide and came up with the goods.

A lot of pressure was put on Pryce yesterday with Russell going off after about 20/25mins and at one stage i thought it was going to be too much for him, but he weathered the storm and came through.

We can still improve a lot more and no doubt we will. But for now, it's time to move on to putting another hoodoo to bed and beating Salford on Friday.

At least Watson has some processes and plans mate, I and many others are at a loss as to what exactly Chester does apart from blame his poorly coached, poorly conditioned and poorly motivated players.

And then Chester comes out and says this........

"Some of these players just aren't good enough. Some are struggling with the intensity and the pace of the game. We are embarrassed by that second-half performance."

These are the players he has signed too.

I know we are not world beaters but you could see the joy and elation and relief on the Giants players faces on the final hooter.
