Huddersfield Giants half-back Jamie Ellis insists that despite another failure in the play-offs last year, the club are more than capable of making it to Old Trafford.
Ellis has been handed a starting shirt in Paul Anderson’s squad numbers for 2016, receiving the No.7 shirt after initially wearing No.20 during his debut season with the club, after joining from Castleford Tigers.
And Ellis told the Huddersfield Examiner that the challenge ahead of him is one that hugely excites him – adding that there is a collective drive to take another step forward in 2016, and it’s something the Giants are capable of acheiving.
“I’m looking forward to that challenge, and I’m also looking forward to seeing us build on what we did last season (finishing third and reaching the play-off semi-finals).
“Everyone in the squad is desperate to go one better next season and make the Grand Final and do well in the Challenge Cup.
“We know we’re good enough.”
