Ferres wants to build on Saints win

Huddersfield forward Brett Ferres is hoping the Giants can kick-on from their comprehensive victory over St Helens last weekend.

They got their season off to the perfect start with a 40-4 win at Langtree Park, and they take on London Broncos at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday, looking to secure back-to-back wins.

Their impressive win against a side that finished third in last season’s Super League, and who many are tipping in the rugby league betting odds to challenge for the League Leaders’ Shield, has got fans and pundits alike talking about the Claret and Gold’s.

Ferres said: “The manner of that win over Saints has given us all a massive amount of confidence.

“Obviously, our challenge now is to build on what we did and make sure there’s a snowball effect rolling into the rest of the season.

“We’ve set a strong platform straight away, and now it’s up to us to build on it. That’s our main aim for the London game on Sunday, and we see no reason at all why that won’t be the case.”

They come up against a Broncos side that were beaten by Widnes at Twickenham Stoop, who will be looking to record their first win of the season in West Yorkshire this weekend.

Leeds Rhinos halfback Rob Burrow is wary of the threat that the Giants pose, saying: “Huddersfield always start well. I think they are going to be strong this year. They’ve got a few points to prove.”

The six-time Grand Final winner added: “The signs they showed at St Helens on Saturday just shows they can be a force. I think they’ll be involved in the play-offs right up until the end.”

Whether Paul Anderson‘s side will be able to maintain the good form they showed on the opening day will determine whether they are able improve on last season’s 7th placed finish.

As notoriously fast starters, the Giants will be keen to prove they have what it takes to be consistent throughout the entirety of the Super League season and potentially progress to the Grand Final for the first time.
