RISING Huddersfield star Danny Kirmond believes yesterday’s thrilling late triumph over the Bulls sums up the superb team spirit that exists inside the Giants camp.
The home side trailed for large parts of the contest and were 22-12 down after 50 minutes before finally clinching the contest in the last five minutes.
It was the Giants’ third home win on the trot against the Bulls, with 22-year-old Kirmond admitting this latest win was a special moment.
“It’s fantastic being a part of this club, especially when we get victories like this!” said the former Featherstone winger, who is now proving a handful for the Giants in the second row.
“To be honest, I couldn’t be much happier with the way things have gone since I got here for the start of the season.
“Obviously, the fact we’re not further up the table means it’s not perfect.
“But from my own personal development, things have gone much better than I had ever expected.
“At the start of the year I set myself what I thought were some pretty realistic goals.
“One of them was to play five Super League games this season.
“I’ve already done that and, last week, I also scored my first Super League try (at St Helens), which was another great feeling.
“But I’m the first to admit that it’s only down to the support of my teammates that I’ve been able to fit in so well.
“Yes, I’m delighted with the way my game’s coming on, but I’m only able to play my part on the back of the other guys around me.
“As a substitute, it’s far easier trying to make breaks and step past defenders when the starting forwards have done their job and have helped to tire out the opposition, which is what they did yesterday.
“And I think that’s the key to our success.
“It’s the way we all work for each other and stick together that brings us rewards.
“We’ll do almost anything for each other and never really know when to give up.”
