GIANTS coach Jon Sharp is promising the Huddersfield faithful a season of Super League thrills and spills.
Sharp's side open their top-flight campaign at home to Castleford Tigers on Sunday (3.00), with high hopes of building on last season's successes.
Under Tony Smith's command the Giants notched 11 top-flight triumphs for the first time in the Super League era and beat Leeds, Wigan and St Helens along the way.
But Sharp has made it clear he is ready to stamp his own style on the Giants' play - and predicted the fans could be in for a treat.
"I have been coaching my players to adopt an open and expansive game," he said. "I believe in trying to ask the opposition's defence some questions, and that's what we'll be striving to achieve.
"At the same time we obviously won't lose sight of the fact that we need to keep working on our defence.
"But I do want this Huddersfield Giants side to be known as a good attacking side.
"We do have some exciting strike players in this team and I want them to go out and express themselves.
"I know it's a style that excites the players, and I also hope it excites the fans.
"Hopefully, that will become clear with the way we play against Castleford on Sunday.
"I hope the supporters enjoy what they see."
Sharp has today named his side for Sunday's game - without inspirational loose forward Brandon Costin.
The Australian is still struggling with the ankle injury which forced him to miss the pre-season defeat at Leeds two weeks ago.
But Sharp has still not ruled him out completely.
"As we stand right now, I'm still not sure whether Brandon will play," he added.
"But he has been improving as the week has progressed.
"In case he doesn't make it I've drafted in Phil Joseph from last night's Academy side that played at Bradford Bulls.
"I'm delighted with the way Phil has worked in pre-season and I believe he's come on leaps and bounds.
"And it's ironic that he's come into the equation because of the injury to Brandon, who's been acting as his mentor throughout pre-season.
"Brandon has put in a lot of time working on his game, and that's been paying off."
