Challenge Cup Third Round Predictions & Tips: Leigh Centurions v Huddersfield Giants (Sunday 14:30 BST)

Two Super League clubs without a win this season will lock horns in the third round of the Challenge Cup on Sunday – and there has to be a winner. Leigh Centurions entertain Huddersfield at Leigh Sports Village with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs. Leigh have been beaten by Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves on their return to Super League, while the Giants have been turned over by Hull Fc and Catalans Dragons. Former Wigan prop Ben Flower is in line for his Leigh debut, while Nathan Peats could also start for the first time. The Giants will once again be without Aidan Sezer, while Joe Greenwood is suspended. Louis Senior and Jack Ashworth have been drafted into the squad. At first, I though the Giants would win this one, but without Sezer they are going to really struggle. The inclusion of Peats will improve Leigh dramatically, so I am backing the Centurions to win this and grab their first win of the campaign.
