HUDDERSFIELD’S recent Headingley heroics will be in the back of Leeds’ mind.
The Giants have tasted success in the past two seasons at the home of the Rhinos.
In 2011, there was a 38-6 thrashing followed by a Danny Brough-inspired 22-12 win 12 months ago.
That, after a 51-year hoodoo, shows how the Giants have progressed in recent years, but Leeds’ threat is now even stronger than ever.
After winning their fifth Super League crown in six years, the champions have strengthened their squad further.
The introduction of Exiles centre Joel Moon from Salford City Reds, alongside relative unknown former Gold Coast Titans outside back Joel Vickery, have certainly given them more strike in attack.
And despite recently losing out to Melbourne Storm in the battle to be named the world’s best club side, the Rhinos have made a strong start to the season, only losing to Castleford Tigers in a low-scoring affair at the Wish Communications Stadium.
Last week’s win at Nathan Brown’s St Helens further highlighted their capabilities, and they will be looking to continue to build on that this weekend against Paul Anderson’s men.
