HUDDERSFIELD Giants are happy to take on Warrington Wolves as part of Millennium Magic.
Super League officials have confirmed the duo will go head-to-head at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday, May 3 next year.
It will be the second game of the day, with a kick-off time of around 4pm.
Last season the Giants secured a 36-12 triumph over Wakefield in the Welsh capital.
They faced each other because it was the Millennium policy to make as many of the fixtures as possible derby games.
But Wakefield will now face their more traditional arch rivals in Castleford Tigers, while Warrington lost their noted derby adversaries in relegated Salford.
As a result, a Giants v Wolves clash became almost inevitable.
And it has now been confirmed.
“We had a feeling this is what would happen,” said Giants football manager Stuart Sheard.
“And we’ve certainly got no real complaints.
“We’ve always got on very well with everyone over there, and over the past few years we’ve been involved in some cracking matches against them.
“Obviously, memories of our 34-22 triumph at Warrington are still very fresh in our minds. It virtually guaranteed our place in the play-offs for the first time.
“So we’re hoping our game in Cardiff proves just as rewarding.
“We just hope we don’t have to play each other three times in the regular season, because four games against them in 2008 would be a little too much.”
Super League fixtures are expected to be released next month, with the Rugby Football League bringing forward the finish to next season to give England more time to prepare for the 2008 World Cup.
Newly-crowned champions Leeds Rhinos will launch the defence of their title on the weekend of February 2-3, with the rest of the clubs starting a week later to accommodate the World Club Challenge against Melbourne Storm later that month.
The season will finish with the Grand Final at Old Trafford on October 4, a week earlier than this year, to give new national coach Tony Smith three weeks to spend with the England squad before they kick-off the World Cup against Papua New Guinea in Townsville on October 25.
The news will also be a boost to Wales, Scotland and Ireland, who are hoping to book their places in the 10-team world tournament in qualifying matches over the next five weeks.
