Joe Wardle knows a win at Warrington Wolves will show Huddersfield Giants are closing in on Super League glory
IN-FORM Joe Wardle believes a win at Warrington will be a further sign the Giants are closing in on silverware.
Huddersfield head to the Halliwell-Jones Stadium tomorrow (8.00) knowing a victory could take them five points clear at the top ahead of the Easter programme.
The 21-year-old centre knows the Giants will need to be at their very best to make it seven wins from eight top-flight starts.
But having already won at champions Leeds and St Helens, Wardle believes they have nothing to fear against the fourth-placed Wolves.
“I’ve never been in a Giants side that’s beaten Warrington,” said Wardle.
“But I can’t see any reason why that can’t change tomorrow.
“After the way we’ve started this season, we’ll be going over there with a lot of confidence, and knowing that if we play well we’ll be good enough to win.
“As a squad, we all want to win silverware, which I suppose seems pretty obvious to say.
“The big difference is that we know we’re capable of doing just that.
“I know it’s still relatively early in the season and we can’t afford to get carried away.
“But we do feel we’re making massive strides, and that we’ve not yet reached out peak.”
Wardle will again start in the centres, with Giants chief Paul Anderson having named the same 19-man squad as the one which plotted Saturday’s 24-10 home triumph over Hull FC.
