My goodness, I had no idea the Giants' had put together a pack like that. That really is formidable. Might be a closer game than I thought, especially if it rains.

It's quite a while since we started a season in particularly impressive fashion and Huddersfield's pack does look good so you never know. I'm confident we'll get the result though and hope that Brown can bring an exciting style to the team after we were flat on so many occasions last year.

I'm not sure how much difference he can make really because we still have basically the same players with the same skillset. Sow's ear and silk purse spring to mind. It'll be interesting to see what he can do with the crew - can he teach Wello to attack in a way other than round the back and to the left for example? I doubt it but you never know.

A team with Brough in is not going to have problems creating

Last season creativity wasn't our problem. It was forward power and its lack thereof...

Saints will win this one, don't fret. Just don't write the Giants off

And hold on to your seats Saints fans come May...

5 minutes behind but I'm ok with these gimmicks of "we never stop talking about rugby league", they're a bit naff but if it helps raise the game a bit...

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

On Odsal Top baht 'at.

Willie Manu already showing why we'll miss him so badly.

Soon as I type he loses the ball...

Edit...and Hudds score from it.

Looking good value as well.

Stevo repeatedly mentioning Leeds last night is getting more insufferable than Clarke's obsession wirh the Pies.

But then, I would say that.

If Hudds can keep Copzak, Fielden and Crabtree fit that prop rotation will be devastating

Giants had one prop last season, and that's why we failed mid season
