IN-FORM Luke Robinson is hoping the Giants can take their winning Challenge Cup form into their Super League campaign.
The 23-year-old scrum half was the star of Huddersfield’s show in yesterday’s triumph over hometown club Halifax and was named the Carnegie man-of-the-match.
And he has immediately set his sights on using the victory to help build a firm Super League foundation.
“After a couple of weeks of frustration on the league front, this was just the sort of result we needed,” said Robinson.
“I know there were times when Halifax put us under pressure, which you have to expect.
“After all, they were the underdogs and had nothing to lose. In games like this, the pressure was always going to be on us.
“But we managed to dig deep and, in the end, we were able to win with a bit to spare.
“And even though I picked up the man-of-the-match award, I thought our forwards had a big role to play.
“I always feel we’re at our best when our pack is rolling forward, and that’s what happened for much of the game yesterday.
“When they’re doing that, it makes my job so much easier.
“So I just hope it’s the same next Sunday when we’re at Hull.
“It looks like their form is starting to pick up after a tough few months, and we’re going to need to be at our very best to beat them.
“But there were more than enough signs against Halifax to suggest we can get the better of them.
“It’s vitally important we build on this cup performance and take it into the Super League.
“We know we’re not a bad team, and that’s what made the last couple of league results so frustrating. Now we’ve rediscovered that winning feeling we want to keep it.”
