GREGG McNALLY wants to play full-back for the Giants at Super League leaders Warrington on Friday.
The 20-year-old made his top-flight debut in Sunday’s 40-12 triumph over Crusaders on Sunday.
It was his first game at Super League level since arriving from his hometown Whitehaven two-and-a-half years ago.
But he showed with a strong performance against the Welshmen that he has what it takes to play at the highest level, and is out to underline that point against the Wolves in front of the Sky TV cameras at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
“I really enjoyed it out there, and I felt I coped playing at Super League level better than I thought I would,” admitted McNally, who made his name as a scrum-half at Whitehaven.
“It’s given me a lot more confidence, and I’d love to think I’ve done enough to keep hold of my place for the game at Warrington.
“Browny told me straight after the game that he thought I did all right, so hopefully that means I’ll be given another shot at it.
“I know there are some areas I need to work on and that’ll be my focus in training.
“But, overall, I did think it went well and after waiting so long to get this chance in Super League, it was fantastic to finally see what it’s all about. It was a fantastic experience.”
What could also count in McNally’s favour this week is his goal-kicking.
Acknowledged as possibly the best in the club, he landed five out of six against the Crusaders, including several from the touchline.
And he knows this could stand him in good stead.
