IN-FORM Stuart Donlan believes his new Giants role is helping bring the best out of him.
The 25-year-old utility back was again in outstanding form as Huddersfield returned to winning way against Widnes yesterday.
And the former Lancashire County of Origin player has put that down to the way he has been switching positions during matches.
"What has tended to be happening is that I've been starting on the wing and then swapping to full-back later in the game," explained Donlan, a close-season recruit from Halifax.
"It's something I've really been enjoying, because full-back is where I played most of my early career and I've always felt at home there.
"And now I'm getting more regular starts my fitness is getting better.
"It was obviously a little frustrating at the start of the year when I was on the bench a lot of the time, but I've waited for my chance and I hope Jon Sharp has been happy with my contribution. Overall, I'm pleased with the way it's gone."
Donlan's most eye-catching moments during yesterday's contest came with his two long-range second-half breaks which would surely have brought tries with better support.
But after playing three games in seven days, Donlan was just delighted to see the Giants get back to winning ways.
"The result meant everything. We were obviously feeling tired towards the end, but we managed to hold on," he added.
