GIANTS' Australian centre James Evans has wasted little time getting back to business with the Super League club.
Within hours of jetting back to Britain on Friday following a break back home, the former Canberra Raiders ace was training with the rest of his teammates.
Just like prop Jim Gannon, who also spent the past two months in his native Australia, Evans has been working hard in the gym and has hit the ground running.
He has also offered to help out on the commercial front, and will be at the Giants' town centre Sporting Pride Shop on Cloth Hall Street tomorrow night between 6.30 and 7.30pm.
The 25-year-old will be on hand to sign autographs, pose for photographs and sign any merchandise for supporters.
The club have a new range of small merchandise in the shop, which are ideal for Christmas stocking fillers.
These include new desk clocks, mouse mats, mugs, umbrellas and drawstring bags, as well as a range of Giants babywear.
Replica shirts for Super League X can also be pre-ordered on the night, with deliveries expected in the next few days.
"We're hoping for a busy run-up to Christmas and initial sales of the new merchandise have been going extremely well," reported Giants marketing manager Jonathan Wilkinson.
"James is looking forward to meeting the fans again after his trip away, and hopefully there will be a good turn-out tomorrow night."
The Giants have now released their 2005 season ticket posters and cards, which have been sponsored by Dual Seal Glass.
The cards, which fold up to credit card size, show all the Giants fixtures.
Posters are available to collect from the Giants offices and Sporting Pride shops and the Giants are asking all fans for their co-operation in distributing the posters to any shops or places of interest that would help to boost the awareness of the club.
If anybody can help to distribute, please contact the club on 01484 530710 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
