KEVIN BROWN is urging the Giants to make sure they back-up the blockbusting 28-18 Magic Weekend victory over Warrington Wolves with another win away at Castleford on Saturday (6.00).
Huddersfield proved far too strong for Warrington, who have been widely tipped as the major challengers to Wigan’s Super League crown this season.
But the men from the Galpharm impressed against the Challenge Cup holders – although Brown has made it clear the players won’t be getting carried away.
“It was a good win and as the new captain I was really proud to lead a team that put in an effort like that,” said the 26-year-old England stand-off.
“Everyone made a valuable contribution – the forwards, in particular – and the team spirit is just growing and growing all the time.
“To beat a side like Warrington, who are going to be up there at the end of the season, is a great start, but that’s all it is – a start.
“It was obvious to everyone that we’re still pretty rusty on attack and we need to keep working on that.
“And it’s a case that if we can get our attack as good as our defence, then we could be a good team.
“At the same time, we also need to start being consistent. We’ve had good games before but then failed to back it up with another, and that’s something we’re determined to avoid this time around.
“That means the focus this week is all about making sure we put in an improved performance at Castleford on Saturday (it now kicks-off at 6pm rather than 6.15pm).
“It’s certainly too early to read too much into an opening-day win over Warrington, even though it was one we were all absolutely delighted about.”
