BIG Jim Gannon is aiming to lead the Giants pack by example and lay the foundation for a historic Super League victory over Bradford Bulls at Odsal tomorrow (3.00).
The Australian prop is well aware that Huddersfield have never beaten Bradford in their seven years in Super League.
But Gannon believes all that could change this weekend, with his duel against faltering Bradford's Great Britain prop Stuart Fielden setting the scene for an explosive afternoon.
"This week we've spoken a fair bit about the fact we've never beaten Bradford," said Gannon.
"And, as far as I'm concerned, up until now there have been two certainties when I face the Bulls.
"One, is that we never beat them, and the other is that I have a go against Fielden!
"Confrontations with opposition props are almost inevitable given the physical nature of the game.
"But when I face Stuart it always has that tendency to boil over, and that could carry on tomorrow.
"In my opinion, that's more likely to happen than for the Bulls to beat us again.
"I'm not going to come out with any rash predictions and say we're going to do this, that or the other against them, but we are going there expecting to give a good account of ourselves.
"We're feeling confident and good about ourselves, and we're really looking forward to getting into an arm wrestle with them.
"Bradford are under a bit of pressure right now and we intend to add to that tomorrow."
Gannon has been in excellent form all season and with the rest of the pack following his lead, the former Halifax man believes the Giants have the firepower to trouble the hosts.
"We know we're going to have to stop the go-forward of Fielden and Vagana and the offloads of Peacock," he added.
"If we let then get on top, then it's going to be difficult for us.
"But we've enjoyed the forward battles this season and there aren't may teams who have got the better of us.
"And, personally, I believe I've benefited from the signing of Paul Jackson.
"He has to be one of the most consistent prop forwards around right now, and he does take some of the pressure off me.
"Paul's not a flashy player, he just gets on with the hard work, both in attack and defence.
"He's just the sort of player you need to match Bradford head-on.
"What happens up front will count for a lot."
