TOMORROW night's clash at Huddersfield is being viewed as Saints' toughest game of the Super League season so far.

Although the Giants. now under the stewardship of ex-Salford boss Ian Watson, have lost all their opening three games - Saints' boss Kristian Woolf remains wary.

As an an added ingredient to the mix, the two sides will lock horns again in the first week of May when a place in the Challenge Cup will be at stake.

Woolf said: "I look at it as potentially our toughest challenge yet.

"If you look through the Huddersfield squad they have a lot of real quality there.

"They haven’t won a couple of games early on, but they have certainly been in the contest.

"If you look they have guys like Luke Yates and Michael Lawrence in the middle who compete all the time.

"Then they have Aiden Sezer and Lee Gaskell are real quality players. Their back five are big and very experienced who have done it club level and internationally for a very long time."

Woolf expects Giants to turn it around with Watson at the helm.

"I do know watching them play that they are a well coached side with a very good structure about them," he said.

"They already defend in a similar way to Salford last year, you can certainly see Ian Watson’s fingerprints all over them.

"He has had terrific success over the last few years so I would expect Huddersfield sooner rather than later to get up and win a couple of games and sometimes that is all you need to get on a bit of a roll.

"What we need to make sure is that it is not this week, and that is entirely in our hands.

"When you do lose a couple of games, like Huddersfield have, you get a real steel to want to turn that around and I expect from them this week.

"The flip side is that we are confident and have a real steel about what we want to do, this week and for the competition as a whole.

"We certainly expect teams to be at their best when they play us – that is what we get every week."

Saints are without Tommy Makinson, and still missing forwards Matty Lees and Morgan Knowles. But they welcome back Sione Mata'utia and hope to have Mark Percival back on board.
