BRANDON COSTIN turned on the style on his return to action to help the Giants beat London 35-22 and declared: "It's great to be back!"
Injuries have plagued the Australian playmaker all season, with shoulder, ankle and hamstring problems blighting the first half of his 2004 Super League campaign.
But now the 30-year is hoping to put the injury nightmares behind him and enjoy a successful run-in to the end of the season.
And he admits his display against the Broncos is the ideal start.
"It was great to get through that match with virtually no ill-effects," said Costin, who missed the last three games with the hamstring injury.
"I did get a spot of cramp in the hamstring towards the end of the game, but I managed to run it off and keep going.
"Hopefully, with seven day's more rest I'll be even sharper and can contribute even more when we go to Hull next Sunday."
Costin's contribution against London included key roles in three of his side's five tries, four successful kicks at goal from six attempts and a drop goal.
However, he still felt his late inclusion was a major factor in his side's shaky start to the contest.
"With me coming back into the side it meant there was some disruption and I think the effects of that were evident early on," he admitted.
"The team had to chop and change a fair bit, with players having to switch from the positions they've been occupying in recent weeks.
"That meant it was alway going to take time for us to gel.
"And London came at us strongly at the start and caught us cold. They really dominated the first half.
"But once we got into our stride after the break, there was only going to be one winner.
"We began to get our combinations working and we got stronger and stronger as the game progressed.
"In the end it was a solid win, and I'm glad to have been a part of it."
