Proud Danny Brough knows the Huddersfield Giants have what it takes to secure a historic victory at Warrington Wolves tonight and reach the Super League Grand Final for the first time.

Recently-crowned minor Super League champions, Huddersfield head to the Halliwell Jones Stadium as the underdogs to reach Old Trafford next Saturday, with the Wolves having won the last eight matches between the two teams.

The Giants warmed up for tonight’s Qualifying Semi-Final with last Thursday’s 13-try 76-18 home destruction of Hull FC.

The nature of the win has put head coach Paul Anderson’s fully-fit squad in upbeat mood for the clash against a Warrington side who have completed a 2013 League double over the Giants and won 44-24 in their Challenge Cup quarter-final meeting at the Halliwell Jones in July.

 

But having clinched the Super League Leaders Shield a month ago to secure Huddersfield’s first top-of-the-table finish in 81 years, inspirational Giants captain Brough knows his side is more than capable of turning the tables and taking the honours when it matters most.

“We’re going there full of confidence and with no-one expecting us to do anything,” said Brough.

“That means we can play without any pressure and enjoy ourselves. We know if we knuckle down and dig in we’ll give ourselves every chance.

“Everyone might be writing us off, but we’re relishing the opportunity to prove them all wrong.”
