Luke Robinson believes the Huddersfield Giants’ battling 24-24 draw at bogey team Warrington will give them a vital boost of confidence ahead of the play-offs.

Huddersfield ended a run of 10 defeats on the trot against the Wolves with their thoroughly-deserved point at the Halliwell Jones Stadium .

The Giants dominated large parts of the contest and could count themselves unlucky not to return home with both points.

 

And half-back Robinson knows the performance bodes well for the future.

“This result has given us a massive boost of confidence at just the right time,” said Robinson.

“It’s never easy going to a place like Warrington, particularly when our recent record against them has been so bad.

“But we felt comfortable for large parts of that game, and I can’t remember feeling like that at the Halliwell Jones Stadium before.

“In that sense, we feel a bit gutted not to have won, because when we were 23-6 ahead early in the second half we should have
finished them off.

“If we get into this position again, we’ve got to make sure we’re a lot more ruthless and don’t let our opponents off the hook.

“But this performance was definitely a big step in the right direction.

“We’ve got the two games of the regular season remaining and then the play-offs, and we’re now feeling even better about our prospects.

“It’s all about hitting your best form at just the right time, and we feel that’s what we could be doing.”
