DELIGHTED Giants coach Jon Sharp is hoping his club now starts to get the recognition they deserve after going top of Super League.
Sharp last night watched his side destroy Widnes Vikings 38-6 at the Halton Stadium to make it two league wins out of two .
More significantly it was a win which took Huddersfield back to the very top of British rugby league for the first time in over half a century.
And Sharp hopes that will be the signal for the whole of the rugby league world to start taking his club far more seriously.
"When I first moved to the Giants from St Helens it hit me like a bolt of lightning how differently the two clubs are perceived and treated," he said.
"It's something I would love to see change.
"I want everyone to treat the Giants with far more respect and with much more credibility, and to give this club the recognition it deserves.
"Surely that will now be achieved after we've moved to the top.
"I know that we probably won't be there by the end of the weekend, but surely it demonstrates the club is heading in the right direction.
"It's also a reward for all the hard work that is being put in by a great many people.
"I'm proud of what the players are achieving, and I'm delighted with the way they are playing.
"It's not every group of players who can say they are playing for the club that's top of Super League, but that's what the boys at the Giants can say today.
"They deserve to be in the position to do so.
"And I'm also delighted they were able to go top in front of the Sky TV cameras."
* St Helens were tonight setting their sights on knocking the Giants off the top of Super League.
They are red-hot favourites to win at London Broncos in the Sky TV clash (6.00), and history underlines that fact.
Saints triumphed over the Broncos twice in the League and once in the play-offs last season, and this year's form suggests there will be little change.
