Giants desperate to make history


31st August 2013

Huddersfield Giants will get the chance to secure their first major silverware of the modern era in front of their home fans when Wakefield Trinity Wildcats visit the John Smith's Stadium tomorrow.

The Giants are a point ahead of Warrington Wolves and need to win only one of their two remaining games of the regular Super League season to clinch the league leaders' shield.

Warrington kept alive their own chances of topping the table thanks to a 29-16 win at St Helens last night but Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson maintained all along that he was not looking for any favours.

"Our destiny has always been in our own hands," Anderson said. "Everybody has kept telling us all year we can't do something so we've just kept doing what we do and we've achieved something.

"We've already got the most points in the competition a Giants team has ever had and no Giants team has been top of the championship with two rounds to go.

"We've talked all along about our own story and creating our own history and legacy and that's what we've done

"We've got an honours board in our gym and we're desperate to put something on it."

It is 81 years since Huddersfield last finished top of the table and Anderson is determined his players will not allow their big chance to slip through their grasp because of complacency.

"We don't achieve anything without getting the two points and I'm sure Wakefield will have a say," he said.

"Wakefield have not been blown away by any team this year. They're competitive and they work hard for each other."
