TALENTED teenager Simon George has admitted that gaining promotion to the Giants' Super League squad is likely to be the easiest part in making his dream come true.
The Huddersfield-born back-row forwardhas been rewarded for some outstanding performances in the Senior Academy side with a place in the first-team squad for 2006.
And 19-year-old George admits that being told he had earned a Super League contract is the highlight of his career so far.
But he also knows that this is where the hard work really starts!
"I've watched the Giants since I was six, and it's always been my dream to one day walk out onto the pitch as a Huddersfield player," said George.
"That dream is still very much alive, although I know I've a long way to go to make it come true.
"Getting a place in the first-team squad is hard enough, but having now trained with them I know how hard it's going to be to break into the first 17.
"There are some amazingly talented players in this squad - a number of them being back-row forwards like myself!
"As the new, young player in the squad, I know I'm behind them in the pecking order, and the only way to close the gap is to work very hard.
"But I'm happy to do what it takes to make my dream become reality, and if that means working extra hard I'm ready to do it.
"One of my main goals this season is to try and improve as much as possible, and if I manage to do that I'm sure my chance will come at some stage,"
Although George, who signed for the Giants from Huddersfield Sharks, is now a Super League player, he has begun a Health and Sports Studies degree at the University of Huddersfield.
But as yet he has had no problem combining the two.
"So far, it's going really well," he said.
