George delighted with Giants start

Huddersfield winger Luke George scored one of the tries of the season so far on Sunday, and he’s delighted with the start the Giants have made to 2012.

George, 24, moved to his hometown club in the close season following five seasons at Wakefield, and he has made an impressive start to his Huddersfield career, scoring six tries in their opening five matches.

His latest try was in the 17-16 win over St Helens at the weekend, racing on to Scott Grix‘s pass following a lightning break by scrum half Danny Brough.

George told the club’s official website: “I was delighted with the tries and for me there is no better feeling than I have coming away from this game. I am just this finisher in all this though and I can’t give enough credit to everyone, from 1-17. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be presented these opportunities to finish.

“It has been a fantastic opening for us and we have got some good victories already. Even the defeat against Warrington we were in it right until the end, it’s a start we all have to be happy with.”

Huddersfield opened up their campaign with a fine 20-16 win at Wigan, before thumping Widnes 66-6 at the Galpharm Stadium.

They suffered their only loss of the season the following week, going down 32-22 at home to Warrington in front of the SKY TV cameras, but bounced back with a 30-16 win at London and Sunday’s narrow victory over St Helens.
