THERE’S a feeling among many of us that our home win over Hull on Easter Monday was our best of the season.
And there’s also a very strong feeling that Sunday’s Challenge Cup fourth-round tie against the same opposition is our biggest fixture of the season so far.
There’s certainly no question we’re determined to do as well as we possibly can in both competitions, and with our confidence sky high right now we do feel we’re ideally positioned to challenge on all fronts.
We want to win Super League and we want to win the Challenge Cup, it’s as simple as that.
We know it’s going to be a tough ask, but if you don’t adopt that attitude you have to question whether there’s any point turning up at all!
It’s for that reason why Sunday’s game at Hull is our biggest of the season.
We’re certainly looking forward to the tie, even though all our bodies are feeling a bit bashed about at the moment due to the fact we’ve played those two games in the space of four days over Easter.
I have to admit my body was probably the sorest it’s ever been the day after Monday’s game, that’s how tough it was.
To be honest, a lot of us felt the same way.
That will also have applied to the Hull boys, too, although I’m sure their aches and pains felt even worse seeing as they’d lost! It’s funny how that always seems the case.
As a result, the outcome of this weekend’s tie could be down to which squad is in the better shape as much as anything.
And I’m confident we can win that battle.
