TOMORROW can’t come soon enough for me!
I’m back in the 19-man squad for the Super League trip to Hull FC after recovering from my neck injury and I’m pretty confident of playing.
Browny hasn’t told me exactly what role I’ll have this weekend – it could be a bit of prop, it could be a bit of back-row – but simply to be back in the frame is a cause for some celebration.
I’ve obviously been cursed by injuries so far this season – I’ve had a ripped eyelid, a torn retina and a bad neck (why do I want to do this for a living!) – and that’s meant I’ve struggled to find any real form.
You only get that by playing week in, week out, and that’s not exactly been the tale of my season so far!
But hopefully I can put in a decent shift tomorrow and start to get a consistent run under my belt.
And I’m pleased it’ll be at a great stadium like the KC.
It’s without question one of the best venues in Super League.
The playing surface is magnificent – which I know ours will also be when the Galpharm pitch has been re-laid – and the atmosphere is always inspirational.
A lot of that has to do with the fact it’s bowl-shaped and keeps in all noise, which is always pretty loud from the Hull faithful.
And because our fans have been travelling in bigger numbers this year, I know the atmosphere could be something to savour.
It’s obviously a big game for us, because we want to remain right up at the top of the table and keep on building some momentum between now and the end of the season.
We certainly feel we’re capable of making this year extra-special, and the news Nathan (right) will be staying next year hasn’t done that process any harm at all.
We all know how determined Browny is to bring some silverware to the club, and it’s fantastic to know he’s sticking around in a bid to try and get the job done.
There are so many positives in the club right now, and Browny staying could be the icing on the cake.
