GIANTS prop Darrell Griffin is hoping that Huddersfield can find a quick form of pain relief and put their Wembley setback behind them.
Following the Challenge Cup final reversal against the Wolves Griffin felt that the immediate target of Super League play-off success could provide the perfect cure.
“We are still doing well in Super League and we already know that we will be in the play-offs and the Wembley experience has only made us more hungry,” said the 28-year-old forward.
“We want more success and I feel if we can take anything from the game at Wembley it is that we want to be involved in more of these big games down the line.
“We didn’t turn up at Wembley to lose and we have to take what happened and move on.
“There is a another big final in a few weeks and maybe if we can get to that it will take away some of the pain of this result.
“Obviously, everyone at the club is disappointed and it will take time to get over it, but the sooner we dust ourselves down then the sooner we can got on with things.”
One of the lessons the Giants will have learned is that they can’t afford to make any more false starts as Warrington appeared to catch them cold.
“I think we felt we were ready to go, but may be we did suffer a little from stage fright,” admitted Griffin.
“Warrington got off to a flying start, but had we been able to deal with that then maybe it would have been a totally different result.
“We also had two tries disallowed and that hit us, but to be fair to Warrington they came into the game and set out the way they wanted to play and they did enough to win the game.”
While Griffin suffered disappointment in the cup he is looking forward to a week that should bring him plenty to smile about as his partner, Charlotte McGahey, is due to give birth.
“It has been a big week in many ways as my partner is due this week,” he explained.
“She travelled down for the final, so the day of the final was spent making a few calls to make sure she was okay.”
