IN-FORM Brad Drew has set his heart on a second Challenge Cup final appearance!
The Giants star heads to Salford tonight (8.00) determined to fire his side into the quarter-finals for the third time in four seasons.
It's something the 31-year-old Australian is confident will be achieved.
But he won't be 100% happy unless the Giants go on to reach the final for a second successive season - and this time win it!
"Getting to the Challenge Cup final last year was amazing," said Drew, who was the man-of-the-match in the Giants' stunning semi-final triumph over Leeds Rhinos.
"It was the first time I'd played in an occasion like this since 2001 when I played in the Australian Grand Final.
"When you start out as a player, it's games like this that you dream of playing in.
"And I know how lucky I have been to have played in several matches as big as a Grand Final and a Challenge Cup final.
"But, at the age of 31, I realise these legs won't be able to carry on for too much longer and that playing in finals will soon be a thing of the past.
"I've still got a couple of good years left in me, though, and I intend to make the most of them - and that includes doing my best to get us back to a Challenge Cup final.
"And I honestly believe this could be the year.
"Our side this season is more than capable of going one better than last year and actually winning it.
"It's taken us some time to get our act together and adjust to the new patterns of play, both on attack and defence.
"But everything is now falling into place, we're enjoying what we're doing and our confidence is sky high.
"We're well aware there's still a lot of room for improvement, and we're determined to be at our very best against Salford tonight.
"We go there with memories of last season's final fresh in our minds, and that's made us all the more determined to make sure we get the job done."
It's a sentiment echoed by everyone inside the Giants camp.
Coach Jon Sharp has made his intentions clear by naming the same 18-man squad that beat Wakefield 36-12 at the Millennium Stadium on Sunday to make it six Super League wins on the trot. It also moved the Giants up to fifth in the table.
And Drew knows his side will need to be at their best to maintain their winning run.
"Salford are struggling for some form, but I've always found them one of the toughest teams to play," he added. "So we're all braced for a very hard game."
