DELIGHTED Giants coach Nathan Brown is hoping his side will reap the rewards of winning their close encounters later in the season.
Huddersfield were again forced to dig incredibly deep in a hard-fought 22-8 triumph at Wigan last night.
That made it five wins from seven Super League XIV starts this season and put Brown’s side third in the rankings.
It was also the third time this year the Giants had won a very tight contest following the early successes at Bradford Bulls and Castleford Tigers.
And Brown believes this pattern bodes well for the future.Related content
“The big thing is that we are winning these close games, which may not have always been the case with this team,” said Brown.
“It is always important to get the wins on the board early because it can help make confidence grow in the camp and it sets you up well for the rest of he season.
“The guys are feeling pretty good about themselves at the moment which they should be. They all they will work hard for each other, as the results are now showing.
“But we are still far from being perfect. We are still not the smartest team in the world, particularly on attack, but if we continue to work hard I know we can get even stronger.”
