AT a time like this, it would be easy to hide behind excuses.
This is a bitterly disappointing time to be following the Giants, and that disappointment is shared by everyone inside the club.
I don't need to tell anyone how our performances have fallen way back in the last two weeks, the evidence is there for all to see.
And I could go on, chapter and verse, about the reasons why this has happened.
But we're not in the business of making excuses.
What we have to do as a club is put these setbacks behind us and look ahead, not back.
We know where we went wrong and we're now in the process of trying to put right all those many wrongs.
Right now, we're like a jockey that's fallen off a horse and is struggling to get back on it, which we know we will.
We just hope it will be as quickly as possible, and the signs certainly suggest that will be the case.
Physically and emotionally, the boys are ready to play.
There are two things you can do when you're going through a period like this.
You can either go into a corner, sulk and feel as if all the world is against you, or you can work even harder to make sure you come back stronger.
We are a club that goes for the latter option.
Yes, it is tough and we know we've not done ourselves any favours over the way we have been playing.
But I really could not have asked for a better response from the players in training this week.
I just hope that is reflected in our performance at Harlequins on Saturday.
We know that if we can re-discover our form, we'll be able to celebrate a second win of the campaign over the club from the capital.
When we played them at the Galpharm on March 19 we showed the rest of Super League just what we are capable of doing and how good we can be as an attacking force, capable of making life exceptionally difficult for any side in the competition.
That performance proved to everyone this Giants team is a good team, and because we've had such a poor Easter doesn't mean we've instantly become a bad team.
The nature of this Super League competition means there are bound to be many ebbs and flows, with all clubs in the competition going through good patches and bad patches.
Obviously, we're going through our bad patch right now, with our first good patch coming at the start of the season when we won four out of five and came within two points of beating St Helens, also in March.
It goes without saying that we hope this bad patch is as short as possible.
There's certainly a steely determination within the squad to put things right and it's been good to get a full week's training under our belts in order to try and put things right.
It was pretty clear with our performance at the Bulls last Tuesday that defence was an area that needed immediate attention.
Unfortunately, because we had to back-up with the Wigan game four days later, there was very little time to work on putting it right.
Thankfully, we've had more time this week.
And, like everyone else in Super League, we were very grateful to catch our breath and give the players more time to fix up their battered and bruised bodies.
I know the likes of Stephen Wild, left, has benefited from a couple of day's rest.
One of the few positives we can take during this period is that Stephen will now not need to see a specialist over his injured knee.
The injury has now cleared up and he's raring to go.
So are the rest of us, for that matter!
