ACADEMY MATCH PREVIEW: VS NEWCASTLE
The Academy are back in action tonight and are looking to make it seven in a row with a win against Newcastle Thunder
Huddersfield Giants Academy can make it seven wins out of seven tonight as they face Newcastle Thunder at Kingston Park. After their comeback victory against Warrington last time out, confidence is high and with the Thunder having won just one game all season, Huddersfield can go as high as third win a win tonight.
With three players in the Yorkshire Origin squad impressing in the 36-30 loss to Lancashire at the Summer Bash, last weekend, the Claret and Gold are the form team in the Academy Championship at the moment, and are looking to secure back-to-back Top 5 finishes.
That's 6⃣ from 6⃣ for our Academy after beating Warrington 4⃣2⃣-3⃣2⃣ today!
