NEWLY-PROMOTED Giants duo Peter Aspinall and Nathan Mason could have bright Super League futures.
That’s the prediction from former Great Britain prop Stuart Fielden, who has taken the talented youngsters under his wing.
The 33-year-old arrived at the Giants two months ago following his switch from Wigan Warriors.
And in that time Fielden has been impressed with the youngsters’ work ethic, as well as that of 21-year-old former Widnes Vikings prop Anthony Mullally, another fellow new signing.
“The keenness of the likes of Peter Aspinall, Nathan Mason and Anthony Mullally has really impressed me,” said Fielden.
“You’ve got to be keen when you’re young, because you’re not going to be handed a starting spot unless there are a lot of injuries, so you have to earn it.
“You earn that through showing what you can do and by showing how much you want to improve, and that is exactly what the young lads are doing.
“They are showing the sort of attitude required to break into a Super League side, and they’ve all shown they have the potential to make a positive impression at that level.”
Former Bulls superstar Fielden is also continuing to enjoy his time generally at his new club.
“I’ve loved it right from the first week. You can’t tell the new lads from the old and that is the way it should be,” he added.
“There are no cliques and everybody is willing to listen and learn from each other, regardless of age and experience. That’s what you need to be successful as a team.”
Meanwhile, members of the Giants’ first-team squad will be at the club’s Junior Christmas party at in the John Smith’s Stadium Revell Ward Suite on Sunday (4-6pm). It is free to 2013 season-ticket holders and £2 to other children, who must be accompanied by an adult.
