KEITH MASON is planning to make a third Millennium Stadium appearance as memorable as possible.
The in-form Huddersfield prop played in Cardiff for St Helens in their 2004 Challenge Cup final victory over a Wigan side that also included Giants teammates Kevin Brown and Stephen Wild.
He also played at the same venue when Wales were beaten by New Zealand two years earlier.
Now he is planning to make a return trip to the capital on Sunday (2.00) when the Giants take on Wakefield as part of Super League's Millennium Magic weekend.
And he is confident it will prove another highlight in his career.
"Awesome is the only way I can describe the stadium," said the 25-year-old.
"It's by far the best stadium I've ever played in, and I really can't wait to go back there this weekend.
"It's just like a colliseum, with the fans right on top of you, and because it's enclosed the atmosphere is out of this world.
"On top of that, the pitch is just like a carpet. In fact, everything about the place is fantastic.
"And I've got such great memories of playing there. It's definitely been a good place for me, and I want that to continue on Sunday.
"Now we've got the wins on the board, it's vital we maintain our momentum.
"We know it's going to be tough against Wakefield. Every game in Super League always is.
"We also know it's up to our pack to lay the right foundation.
"But we know we're big, strong, fast and fit, and we aim to prove that again this weekend."
