GIANTS pack star David Faiumu is  confident the Giants can conjure up  the win that would take them back  above St Helens in the Super League  table – even if it would mean ripping  up the usual script.

Huddersfield go to the Stobart Stadium  tonight (8.00) seeking their first away win  against Saints in the summer era.

All four of the Giants’ Super League  successes against Saints have been achieved at  the Galpharm.

The Giants last league win at Knowsley  Road was a 16-15 victory on November 26,  1978 – with Saints winning 17 successive home  competitive fixtures between the two clubs  since then.

But Faiumu has his sights set on taking third  place away from Royce Simmons’ side and not  on the history books.

“They are only one point ahead of us and our  target is definitely to get above them,” said  Faiumu.

“They are a class outfit, but we will be  looking to roll in to some good form for the end  of the season and get a win against a team who  have been playing really well.”

While St Helens were being beaten in the  Challenge Cup final last weekend, the Giants  squad were enjoying a break from action  following their 46-26 home victory over Hull  KR.

And Faiumu felt the break had been of  benefit for the Giants squad.

“I think that the break has helped us –  certainly it has helped the injury situation,”  said the 28-year-old.

“There were those who needed to get over a  few niggles and those who have been injured for  a bit longer.

“There have been quite a few of the guys out  over the past six weeks or so, and the break has  helped because we are now getting them  back.

“The boys are now looking renewed and  refreshed and we are ready to go into these big  matches that are coming our way until the end  of the season and then the play-offs.”

Recent away showdowns against Super  League leaders Wigan and second-placed  Warrington have not been happy occasions for  the Giants and Faiumu said the camp were well  aware they had to set their stall out early  against another of the top sides.

“We know that we have got to start well  against Saints,” he said.

“When you play sides like St Helens, Wigan  and Warrington, or even the top seven sides or  so, you know you have to start strongly or they  will punish you.

“Sides like that have got too many good  players in their ranks so you know that you  have got to impose yourself on the game.

“Saints, particularly, have got great players  in their ranks so you have to do what you can  and take what they give you as well – but we are  well capable of handling it.”

While Saints might be licking their wounds  from last weekend’s painful derby defeat,  Faiumu said that was basically none of the  Giants business.

“We can’t really think about what happened  in their game last week, we have to turn up and  get on with doing our job,” he added.

“We have not talked about their game last  week and I am sure they are going to have got  over it.

“They will front up with their best 17 and be  wanting to show what they can do.

“They will be over the Wigan game now  because they will have worked to put that  behind them as quickly as they can and get  focused on what they have to do in Super  League.

“They are too good a team to let something  like that get to them.”
