Wigan Warriors vs Huddersfield Giants Tips


Wigan Warriors take on the Huddersfield Giants in the Challenge Cup Final. Wigan have better cup pedigree and are tipped to be crowned champions for a 20th time. 

Wigan Warriors Form


Wigan will be looking to secure their 20th Challenge Cup title having enjoyed an impressive record in this competition.

This season, Wigan a menace going forward with Jai Field in particular in scintillating form but do have some questions to answer after losing their last two.

Since defeating St Helens in the Challenge Cup semi-final, Wigan have been beaten by Huddersfield and Hull FC.

Wigan Warriors Team News


Wigan have been able to recall captain Tommy Leuluai for his first appearance since sustaining an injury on Good Friday. 

Kade Ellis has seen his suspension come to an end, but the game comes too early for Sam Powell, who is serving the final game of his ban. 

Huddersfield Giants Form


The Giants have just a single Challenge Cup crown to their name, that coming in a 21-10 win over the Warriors more than 100 years ago in 1920. 

They do head into this final in good form after four wins in a row over Wakefield, Hull KR, Wigan and Toulouse Olympique.

Huddersfield Giants Team News


Will Pryce makes his return following a lengthy 10-match ban for a dangerous tackle back in the Giants' game against Hull FC. 

Olly Russell is part of the squad, but question marks remain over his fitness after he went off injured last weekend.
