GIANTS coach Jon Sharp believes his meeting with referees' chief Stuart Cummings proved `valuable and constructive'.
Sharp met with RFL Match Officials Director Cummings late last week in the wake of the Giants' controversial Challenge Cup defeat at the hands of holders St Helens.
The Huddersfield chief will meet Cummings again, along with the other 11 Super League coaches, at a meeting at Red Hall on Wednesday to discuss the topic of refereeing in general.
And Sharp is hoping that forum proves as positive as his one-to-one meeting last week.
"Obviously, the exact details of the meeting will remain between Stuart and myself," said Sharp.
"But I felt it was a very valuable and constructive meeting, and I thank Stuart for taking the time to listen to my views."
Cummings, however, revealed that their views did differ on key Cup-tie decisions made by referee Ronnie Laughton.
"Jon and I met last week, we had a great discussion and I got a lot out of it, altough we agreed to disagree," said Cummings.
"Ronnie was criticised for one try he disallowed for Huddersfield and for another that he allowed for Darren Albert.
"Jon believes Huddersfield scored their try, whereas I think it was a knock-on.
"For Albert's try, the officials were in a good position. The in-goal judge said he had definitely grounded the ball over the line, so it was awarded.
"The touch judge was watching the corner flag and didn't see the ball come out.
"The ball came loose, as it often does, and a Huddersfield player picked up the ball.
"The touchjudge saw the Huddersfield player pick it up and wasn't sure whether he should follow the player, and that is probably where the confusion arose among the fans."
Meanwhile, Sharp was today doing his final preparation on Bradford Bulls, who the Giants face at Odsal on Sunday.
Bradford go into the contest on the back of yesterday's 35-32 defeat at Warrington, although coach Brian Noble insists his side are still firmly in the play-off picture despite another miserable day for the Bulls.
Yesterday's defeat leaves the Bulls in unfamiliar territory in the bottom half of the table, but Noble sees no reason for panic.
The Great Britain coach said: "Things aren't desperate, there are still two thirds of the season to go and we're going to try to make sure that we're in the top six come the end of the season."
In yesterday's other game, Hull held off determined Widnes to move up to third in the table with a 32-28 win at the KC Stadium.
