BIG Jim Gannon is braced for the toughest of tests against his former club when he lines up for Hull KR at the Galpharm on Sunday (3.00).
The 29-year-old left the Giants at the end of last season after four good years in the claret and gold.
It's a time the powerful prop remembers with fondness.
But he knows that will count for nothing when he steps back onto the Galpharm pitch this weekend.
And he's also aware his new side will need to be at their best if the Robins are to make an impact.
"We're in for a really hard game, we all know that," revealed the Australian, who is now a British citizen.
"I expect them to do well this season, and we're going to have our work cut-out to match them if we don't show a big improvement on the way we played to beat Wakefield last week.
"But even though it's going to be tough, I'm really looking forward to it.
"It's always special playing against a former club, and I've always enjoyed playing at the Galpharm.
"In fact, I can't get over how quickly this first match back at the stadium has come round for me.
"It only seems like two minutes ago that I was playing for the Giants against Bradford Bulls on the last day of last season!
"I got a great reception from the fans at that game, and I hope I get a good reception from the fans again this weekend.
"I would like to think I always gave 100% for Huddersfield and that the fans appreciated what I did.
"I really enjoyed my four years at the club.
"But that obviously doesn't mean I won't be doing my best to help Hull KR win on Sunday.
"You always want to do well against your former club, but I don't feel as if I've got a point to prove or anything like that.
"I want to do my best to help Hull KR get the wins we need to stay in Super League, because we're already being written off."
