PAUL MARCH is putting his top start to the Super League season down to his new white boots!
The Giants scrum half played a leading role in the 26-22 opening-day win over Castleford to earn a place in the official Super League Opta Team of the Week.
It was recognition that delighted the 24-year-old, who was in no doubt as to what inspired him.
"It has to be down to the boots!" he said.
"I was really pleased with my try against Cas because I've been working on my speed during the winter, and that was crucial to scoring.
"Having the right boots definitely helps."
