GIANTS winger David Hodgson is ready to inflict as much misery as possible on the club he’ll be joining in 2012.
The 29-year-old former England flier has signed a three-year deal with Hull KR to start next season.
But tomorrow Hodgson will line up for Huddersfield against ‘new’ club Rovers at the Galpharm (7.15) in a fixture he knows is massive for both clubs.
The Giants are desperate to secure a victory as they bid to rediscover their early-season form and strengthen their claims for a top-four Super League finish, while the Robins need to win to keep their play-off hopes alive.
“We (the Giants) need to win this weekend, it’s as simple as that,” said Hull-born Hodgson, who is looking forward to being part of the first game back at the Galpharm in two months following the relaying of the pitch.
“To be honest, it wouldn’t matter who we’re playing. I’m contracted to the Giants for the remainder of the year and I want to sign off here as positively as possible.
“I suppose the fact tomorrow’s game is against Hull KR gives it slightly more of an edge.
“I’m looking forward to going there and moving back closer to my family, but I look to play well in every game and that’ll be the case again tomorrow.
“We really do need to start to find some form again to make sure we give ourselves a really good shot when it comes to the play-offs.
“Hull KR are also desperate to get the points to keep in the hunt, but at this moment that means nothing to me.
“Helping the Giants win is all that matters.”
