IN-FORM Danny Kirmond will make his 50th Giants appearance tomorrow – and has immediately set his sights on reaching his century.
The 25-year-old, left, is expected to play another leading role as Huddersfield bid to bounce back from last week’s heavy defeat at Super League champions Wigan with victory over Crusaders at The Shay (3.00).
The former winger-turned-second-rower was one of his side’s better performers at Wigan a week ago.
And the ex-Featherstone man is determined to play even better this weekend and mark a half-century of Huddersfield appearance by inspiring his side to victory.
“It’s amazing to think I’ve nearly played 50 games for the club,” he said. “And I’d love to get to 100!
“Whichever club you’re at, you have to take it one game at a time, but in the future I’d like to rack up as many games as possible for the Giants.
“I’m enjoying life at the club and there are a lot of faces around now who are here for the future as well, which makes it even more exciting.
“But first things first, we’ve got to get back to winning ways after what happened at Wigan last Saturday.
“We were really poor last week and we came up against a Wigan team who were on top form, so that result was inevitable.
“I’m confident you won’t see us turn in a performance like that for a long, long time to come, if ever!
“We were well below par in a lot of areas and I know you’ll see a far better performance from the team this week.”
