UPBEAT Giants officials report the McAlpine Stadium is in perfect condition to stage tomorrow's pre-season Super League clash against Castleford Tigers (8.00).
Despite the Arctic conditions which have gripped the nation all week, the game will definitely go ahead.
The stadium's undersoil heating has been on all week and all approaches to the ground have been gritted.
And with milder weather forecast for tomorrow, the mood inside the McAlpine is positive.
"The pitch has already been marked out and the rugby posts have been put up for the first time in 2004," reported Giants spokesman Richard Thewlis.
"And I have to say the pitch is looking in superb condition.
"Barring an absolute catastrophe, the game will definitely be on."
Admission to the game is £12 and £6, and it is ALL pay, although the season's car park passes are vaild.
But Vice Presidents must note they need to show their passes at the Giants office in order to be handed a matchday pass to guarantee their access.
