FORMER St Helens assistant coach Keiron Purtill knows that if the Giants win on Sunday they will have beaten the best team in Super League.
Purtill will face Saints for the first time since leaving Knowsley Road for the Galpharm at the end of last season.
The move brought the curtain down on a three-and-a-half-year association between Purtill and the Saints.
The new Huddersfield assistant coach thoroughly enjoyed his time at the club.
But during that time he also discovered how much quality there was in the squad.
"It was absolutely fantastic being around a top-quality squad packed full of internationals," reflected Purtill, who moved to the Giants in order to play a far wider role at first-team level.
"When you work that closely with a group of players you begin to appreciate just how good they are.
"It's no surprise to me, therefore, that they are setting the early pace in Super League. I believe they are the best around right now.
"But there's no doubt that sides like the Giants are catching them up.
"I've been impressed with the quality there is in our squad, and getting a victory over the Saints is certainly not out of the question.
"If that's to be achieved, we have to improve on our win at Wakefield, which we all know we will. We can do it."
