GIANTS coach Jon Sharp believes his side will have the physical presence to make a bigger impact in Super League XII.
His club yesterday unveiled big Darrell Griffin as the Giants' second prop-forward capture for 2007.
Griffin follows in the sizeable footsteps of fellow front-rower John Skandalis, who has signed from Australian NRL side Wests Tigers.
They have effectively come in to replace Wayne McDonald and Jim Gannon.
Both former Giants were big men, with McDonald the tallest in Super League at 6ft 7in and Gannon coming in at 6ft 2in.
But with Griffin measuring 6ft 5ins and Skandalis 6ft 4ins, Sharp is confident the Giants will look far more intimidating next season.
"I now believe we have five outstanding props who will make sure we are strong up front," predicted Sharp.
"As well as Darrell and John, we have Eorl Crabtree, Paul Jackson and Keith Mason.
"They are all big, strong and powerful men who together will make the Giants an even more effective force.
"And I'm certain we'll start to see the very best of Darrell Griffin next season.
"He is a big, powerful athlete who has the potential to develop into one of the best props in Super League.
"I'm delighted we have been able to add him to our squad."
But while Griffin has joined, Stuart Donlan has confirmed his departure to Castleford (Page 44), while Bolu Fagborun is on his way to Rochdale Hornets.
