Kopzcak keen to build on Huddersfield success

Huddersfield prop Craig Kopczak is looking to use last season’s play-off experience as a base to build on during the coming campaign.

While the Giants took home the League Leaders’ Shield, their play-off campaign stalled at the semi-final stage, when they were beaten by Warrington.

“For me, it was my first time to get that close to a grand final,” Kopczak told Love Rugby League.

“Some had been there and experienced it already. But this time around it’s given us a sniff of success, and we want to go out and get some more.

“That’s the feeling around the camp – that we want to go out there and get that trophy now.

“Being so close has just spurred us on even more.”

The Giants’ forward pack will also be boosted this season by the addition of Antonio Kaufusi, who has joined the club from London Broncos on a two-year deal.

“He’s a fantastic signing, a great player and a great person,” Kopczak said.

“A great addition to our squad, and he takes pressure off the rest of the forwards. 

“It’ll be fantastic to see him in a Huddersfield shirt.”
