TOMMY LEE is relishing today’s home confrontation against former club Hull FC (3.00) and helping the Huddersfield Giants remain on top of the Super League XVII table.

The 24-year-old warmed up for the battle against the second-placed Black and Whites with a man-of-the-match performance in the 36-10 Good Friday home triumph over Salford as Huddersfield made it eight wins for the season so far.

The in-form utility man knows this afternoon’s challenge is going to be far tougher and could go some way to proving whether the Giants are this season’s top-flight real deal.

But Hull-born Lee has 100% confidence that he and his teammates can get the job done and send another massive message to their main Super League rivals.

“It’s a good time to be playing Hull, and I personally can’t wait!” said Lee.

“Having played in Hull derbies myself I know how tough they can be. There’ll have been plenty of bumps and bruises knocking around, and it’s up to us to capitalise on that.

“Yet have said that, I know we have the ability to get the job done regardless.

“We’ve already shown on a number of occasions this season what we’re capable of doing, and if we play to our potential we know we’ll be good enough to get the two points.

“Although this is a tough time of the year, we’ve got a relatively fit and fresh squad.

“Confidence is high in the camp, and we’re going into every game knowing teams are going to have to do something pretty special to beat us.

“Hull may be second, but that’s just going to make us even more determined to play well against them.”

And Lee is eager to produce a strong individual display against the club where his professional career got under way.

“I’m feeling really good about the way things are going for me at the moment,” he added.

“My man-of-the-match award against Salford was the first one I’ve picked up at first-team level and I can’t wait to build on that against Hull today.”
