FRIENDLY banter has been the order of the day among the Southwell family this week.
Seventeen-year-old Jason is still savouring his Giants' Super League debut at Bradford Bulls six days ago.
But while he didn't make a tackle or get hold of the ball during his brief appearance in the final two minutes, he has at least got the better of his older brother Marcus.
And for the talented prop forward that counts for a lot!
"When Marcus played at the Giants he made it to 18th man for a Super League game at Salford," said Jason.
"But I've already done better than him, although he was still very pleased for me.
"I made the 17 and played for the Giants in Super League, and against the world champions at that. I think that's one up for me, don't you?"
But Southwell doesn't intend his Super League career to end with just 120 seconds under his belt.
"I have to admit I was very nervous when I was sitting on the bench," he continued.
"But when I got the nod to go on, that turned to excitement.
"My only regret is that I didn't have longer, but two minutes is a start.
"That experience has definitely made me more determined to pursue my dream of playing regularly for the Giants in Super League.
"I'm Huddersfield born and bred, and from a very early age all I've ever wanted to do is play professionally for my hometown club.
"I've got one more exam to take at Greenhead College before wrapping up this year's studies.
"Then I'll be training full-time with the first-team squad, and hopefully earning a professional contract.
"That little taste of action at Odsal has certainly given me extra motivation to be taken on."
Southwell keeps his place in the first-team squad for tomorrow's home clash against London Broncos (5.30) as injuries continue to bite.
With some players expected to return, he may miss out this weekend.
But his time will surely come.
