GIANTS matchwinner Brandon Costin has admitted it was down to complete luck that his side were able to celebrate victory over Castleford on the opening day of Super League IX.
It wasn't until the 76th minute that Huddersfield took the lead for the first time when the 29-year-old pounced on his own kick-through to score the winning try.
But the loose-forward admits it was a score which was down to good luck as much as judgement.
"When Eorl Crabtree offloaded the ball on halfway, I saw Sean Penkywicz was looking to pick it up and run," reflected Costin.
"I was having none of that, so I decided to kick it ahead with the intention of trapping the full-back in the in-goal area and then trying to steal the ball off him if possible.
"But when I got to the tryline I saw the full-back was hesitating and knew this was my big chance.
"I pounced and hoped for the best, and luckily the ball stuck.
"It has to go down as one of the luckiest tries I've ever scored - not that I'm complaining, of course!
"This was one of those games where we were happy to take the win however it came.
"Until the final few moments we were never in control of this game at all. I'm sure that in years gone by, there's no way the Giants would have won a tight match like this, but it's all changed now".
