NEW recruit Brad Drew believes the tag of being the ``Giants biggest Super League signing" could bring the very best out of him.
Top Huddersfield officials, including chief executive Ralph Rimmer and general manager Richard Thewlis, have stated that securing Drew on a two-year contract from the start of the 2005 season will go down as the club's biggest coup.
This has immediately placed added pressure on the 28-year-old Canberra hooker to live up to his massive reputation.
But Drew is confident that will help inspire him to great things at the McAlpine.
"I've never been labelled in terms like this before, and I have to admit it's flattering," said the former Penrith and Parramatta star.
"But I'm sure it will help me focus even more when my time begins in England.
"I'm certainly not coming over for a holiday.
"I'm a very proud man. I'm proud of what I have achieved in the game in Australia and I want to be proud of what I achieve over in England.
"It's always been my dream to play in England, and now I'm about to fulfil that dream I don't want it to be shattered by not doing myself or the team justice.
"Coming over to play Super League with the Giants next year is a massive challenge and I'm already very excited by the prospect."
One of Drew's reasons to come to England is to gain more game time and try and make the hooker spot his own.
Although he has played in nine of Canberra's 11 matches this season, many of those have come as a strike player from the bench.
On several occasions, Drew has emerged the matchwinner which he has thoroughly relished, but he admits he would like a far bigger role at the Giants.
"I gather this was one of the main reasons why Ben Roarty left Penrith to come here," added Drew.
"And from what I've seen and heard, Ben's done a fantastic job for the Giants.
"I've always admired Ben's style of play, and I'm excited about linking up with this quality of player and also being coached by someone like Jon Sharp.
"His ideas have already made a positive impression on me."
