I DON'T think anyone will be surprised to hear that everyone inside the Giants camp is on a real high right now.
We go into Sunday's massive home clash with Bradford Bulls having made an unbeaten start to our Super League campaign.
That makes this weekend's fixture a genuine top-of-the-table clash.
And next week we will, of course, be preparing for a Challenge Cup tie against National League II club York which could take Huddersfield into the semi-final of rugby league's most famous knockout competition for the first time in 33 years.
There's no doubt that those who have been making the Challenge Cup draws have been very kind to us.
Three times I've wanted non-Super League opposition at the McAlpine, and three times I've got my wish.
But, once again, I feel I have to re-iterate the point that we shouldn't get too carried away. York next Sunday will be tough opponents.
There's also no doubt that the Challenge Cup can be a major Super League distraction if it is allowed to be, and I'm obviously well aware there is a lot of talk about the Challenge Cup at this particular moment.
I can only control the environment when I'm with the squad at the club, and I can assure everyone that the subject of reaching the semi-final of the Challenge Cup has never been raised.
I'm obviously aware the players have been bombarded with excitement and questions about the Challenge Cup away from here.
But I believe the players are smart and professional enough not to be too distracted.
When we went into the Widnes Super League game we knew we would be facing Doncaster a week later with a Challenge Cup quarter-final place at stake.
That proved no distraction whatsoever in our build-up to the Widnes fixture, and that's been good practice for the Bradford Bulls-York City Knights scenario.
All our attentions are focused on Bradford, and that has been getting our individual attention.
Only when that match is out of the way will I allow people to start to think about York.
But the thing with the Bulls is that you need to give them your undivided attention whatever the circumstances.
If you don't, you will certainly suffer the consequences.
Even though Bradford have suffered on the injury front in the opening weeks of the season, they still have a quality squad which is well-coached and extremely difficult to beat.
Whoever comes in to replace their injured players will be a top-line player who knows what he is doing and will have no difficulty slotting into a quality operation.
But it's not all doom and gloom for the Bulls on the injury front.
By all accounts, Robbie Paul will be making his long-awaited return against us.
I was coaching against Robbie when he suffered his broken arm against St Helens at Odsal last season, and no-one likes to see a player pick up an injury of this nature, particularly someone as gifted as Robbie.
And while I would have preferred him to have been sidelined against us, I'm pleased for him, for the Bulls and for the game in general that a player of his quality is about to return to the major Super League stage.
Robbie's return adds to what should be a great occasion this weekend, and I definitely believe this is an interesting time to play them.
It will give us a benchmark to see exactly where we are right now.
Without being rude to the teams we have played and beaten so far this season, Bradford are at another level - a level we are looking to aspire to.
Win, lose or draw, we will gain tremendously from this fixture.
By Sunday evening I'll know a lot more about my Huddersfield Giants.
