HUDDERSFIELD Giants are back in Super League's top six!
Last night's convincing 24-16 triumph over Wigan helped coach Jon Sharp's men jump above Bradford Bulls and London Broncos in the top-flight table.
But, just as importantly, it reinforced the Giants' status as a credible Super League force.
Three late Wigan tries gave the final scoreline a look that failed to reflect the way Huddersfield dominated the contest.
Those scores took some of the gloss off the win, but that didn't spoil the night for proud coach Sharp.
"It's a sign of the times that people are asking me if I'm disappointed we conceded three late tries against Wigan," said Sharp.
"Until the last few years, everyone would have been asking me what it's like to be a Huddersfield coach who's just seen his side beat Wigan.
"The fact this wasn't the first thought for many shows how this club is progressing.
"It's a sign of this club's current status in the game.
"Obviously, it would have been nice to have kept Wigan out and celebrated victory by a far larger margin.
"But I'm just glad to have got the points from a game that did cause me some concern beforehand - and for a number of reasons.
"For starters, we had a tough Easter with two games against sides who were very keen to take the points from us .
"Then it was followed up by the fantastic Challenge Cup game against St Helens.
"The players were dead on their feet at the end of that match and they also had to cope with the emotion of last week's controversial events.
"I was concerned that the emotion could have resulted in them coming up empty last night.
"Fortunately, that wasn't the case, and for that everyone deserves credit.
"I was pleased with what we had done in the build-up to this Wigan match and it was great to see it pay off.
"Overall, I thought we played well and handled the early loss of James Evans extremely well.
"He was causing Wigan lots of problems until he took a bang to his shin.
"That caused us some a bit of disruption, but the response was spot-on."
