News

This will be the fifth time the two teams have met this season with the Lions taking two Championship wins by relatively narrow margins and winning the two-legged Trophy semi-final.

The home team go into the game as BBL leaders and the Giants will be underdogs. But a win will go a long way to helping their Play-off ambitions.

What the coach says

Danny Byrne: “The players are excited to get going again after the international break and they’re refreshed. It’s the fifth time of playing the Lions and we know the dangers they pose. This is a different proposition to the Trophy game. We won there last time but they were well ahead from the first leg. It’s another blank slate and we have nothing to lose. We’ll go there looking for the win.”
