FORMER England winger David Hodgson is still looking to secure a new Giants deal.
The 29-year-old missed just one of Huddersfield’s opening seven Super League XVI fixtures.
But in the last nine matches he has played on only three occasions, with Jamie Simpson, Jermaine McGillvary, Leroy Cudjoe and Michael Lawrence getting the nod for the wing spots.
Hodgson did, however, produce another try-scoring display in last weekend’s 30-16 fifth-round Carnegie Challenge Cup home triumph over Catalan Dragons.
And he’s hoping he did enough to help him keep his place for Sunday’s trip to Hull FC – and prove to Nathan Brown he deserves a new contract in the process.
“I’m trying not to think about being out of contract at the end of the season, I’ve just got to keep my head down and keep on working,” said the former Wigan, Salford and Halifax flier.
“But, hopefully, I’d like to get something sorted out at the Giants, even though this past few months have been pretty frustrating.
“You never like to miss games, but that’s something you have to accept when you’re playing in a team with so many quality players.
“What you have to do is make sure that when you get your chance you make the most of it, which is what I always try to do.”
