Lunt: Success down to team spirit

Huddersfield star hooker, Shaun Lunt believes that the Giants success so far this season bores down to their “attitude and effort” each week.

With five matches until the end of the regular season, the Giants lie one point clear of both Wigan and Warrington at the top of the table having won a total of 17 matches.

 “We didn’t set targets at the start of the season – we didn’t say that we want to win the Challenge Cup, Grand Final or the League,” he said.

“Our goals were set on attitude and effort and were to play for each other and give our all each week.

“We knew that would put us in a good place to win something and touch wood; so far we’ve done that.

“We’ve worked hard for each other and we’ve not just got results, but we’ve put in some good performances.

“The one in Catalan stands out for me because we went a man down and still managed to win that game in hot weather.”

Paul Anderson’s side travel to Wigan in ten days time for a match which will have a major bearing on the outcome of the league but Lunt believes that his teammates just have to take one game at a time.

“If we carry on in the same way for these last few weeks, we’ll give ourselves a good chance of winning the League Leaders Shield.

“I’d absolutely love to be able to do that because it shows you’ve been the most consistent team throughout the season and that’s an honour.

“It’d be great for the club as a whole as there’s no hiding the fact that compared to other top teams in the division, we aren’t supported too well.

“But we can’t look too far ahead. The match at Wigan is obviously going to be massive in terms of that but we’ll view it as just another game.”
