  • Liam Farrell on Huddersfield semi

  • Dream Team debutant knows Giants will be desperate to reach Grand Final

  • Wigan face Huddersfield in semi final at the DW Stadium on Thursday, 8pm

Dream Team debutant Liam Farrell has warned his teammates that Huddersfield will be desperate to reach Old Trafford as the pair get set to meet.

Wigan face Huddersfield in the Super League semi final at the DW on Thursday evening and Farrell expects a tough encounter.

The Giants have been in the play offs for the previous six years but still await their Grand Final debut, something Farrell knows they will want to put right.

“Huddersfield are always consistent,” he said. “The one thing that I can guarantee is they will want to take it to the next level and win Grand Finals and Challenge Cups. We’re standing in the way of them at the moment and they’re going to come to our place and try and knock us off.”

Farrell is under no illusions to the threat the Giants pose.

“They’ve got some special players in their team, they’ve got Danny Brough and Jermain McGillvary in the Dream Team and Joe Wardle, Leroy Cudjoe and plenty of other players in their team who are pretty special players.

“We have to watch out for them, they’re a different team to the one we played last year but so are we, it’s going to make for an interesting game.”

Farrell was speaking at the Super League Dream Team announcement, the England international involved for the first time.

On his selection he said: “I’m quite pleased to be involved, you look around at some of the players and I just think it’s great to be involved.

“There are other Wigan players who could have been in but there have been a lot of players playing well this in the league so it’s a tough one to call really, at the end of the day it’s the media who decide who’s in there.”
