CAPTAIN Brett Hodgson admits the Giants are still smarting from Saturday’s home defeat to Super League champions Leeds Rhinos.
But he has made it clear that hitting the panic button is the last thing on anyone’s mind.
Huddersfield remain third in Super League and travel to face a Warrington Wolves side on Sunday (3.00) buoyed by a big win at struggling Bradford Bulls last time out.
Yet despite the clubs’ contrasting fortunes last weekend, Hodgson admits the Warrington clash couldn’t come soon enough.
“We were all disappointed with the way things went on Saturday,” said Hodgson.
“Apart from an odd exception, I think every player knew they hadn’t done themselves justice against Leeds.
“But the good thing in footy is that you usually don’t have to wait too long to get back on the field to try and put things right.
“To be honest, I think we’d have all liked to have played the day after the Leeds game if we’d had the choice!
“Unfortunately, that isn’t the case and we’re having to wait until Sunday.
“Last week’s defeat hasn’t dented our confidence, it’s just given us a wake-up call.
“We’re still third in the table, and there on merit, so the last thing anyone is doing right now is hitting the panic button.
“Last Saturday just wasn’t our day.”
