HUDDERSFIELD-BORN Great Britain star Keith Senior believes his hometown club can reach the play-offs for the first time.
The Leeds Rhinos centre, one of 15 players to have been involved in all 10 Super League seasons, comes face to face with the Giants tomorrow in a big Headingley opener.
Although his Leeds side are tipped to open with a win, 29-year-old Senior is taking nothing for granted.
"You know when you are playing the Giants that they will always put up a good fight," said Senior.
"That wasn't always the case, of course, and as a Huddersfield lad I'm delighted it's all changed.
"Because this is my hometown, nothing would give me greater pleasure than to see the Giants break into the top six, and there's no reason why this shouldn't be their year.
"I know the competition to get into the top six is going to be more fierce than ever.
"But under Jon Sharp I know the boys can do it.
"A lot will obviously depend on how Chris Thorman and Robbie Paul can perform at half-back.
"If they strike up an immediate understanding, they could trouble any side in the competition.
"I hope that's the case, but not against us tomorrow!"
But exactly which clubs does Senior feel will pose a threat to his Rhinos and his hometown club in engage Super League XI?
