Well it was “a belter”!

We all watched a resurgent Giants team flow up and down the pitch like an ever-rippling wave to finally overcome Leeds Rhinos. We are now only two games away from another Challenge Cup final appearance.

This is getting real exciting. Watch out Wildcats you are next.

For us watching from the Revell Ward stand across to the Britannia Rescue stand we could hear the fans in fine voice as their songs and chants echoed across the field of play.

Our part of the stand is not so vocal but it is incensed by the referee missing a clear case of opposition offside or rising to its feet to salute a Giants try.

Now we don’t want to raise an old argument but at some point during the second half from the Britannia Rescue stand there burst forth that ancient battle-cry of FARTOWN.....FARTOWN.....FARTOWN.

It galvanised the team, sent shivers down the spine and silenced the opposition fans. What an electric moment to be cherished.

They may be “Leeds Rhinos” but we are FARTOWN as well as Giants and the club’s supporters association is fully behind a team that is rising in confidence and will shortly be rising up the Super League.

We sit close to the opposition dug out alongside where those players who are not playing for their team sit.

Among the ranks were Ryan Hall, Carl Ablett and Danny Maguire. If they had been playing would it have been a different story?

However, thinking about it we realised that we were without Craig Huby, Daniel Smith, Jamie Ellis and Scott Grix.

So the match came down to a contest between the younger players and we have to say on the evidence before our eyes our young men are better than their young men.

What a rugby team Huddersfield has and what a team it is going to have in the future.

Finally, part of our trip to Huddersfield is the meeting of the Supporters Association before the game at the Turnbridge WMC.

The beer is good and cheap and they serve trays of black pudding and slices of dripping, which to a Southerner like me is to die for!

Going to the Turnbridge having a drink, eating black pudding (notice I have my priorities right), meeting like-minded fans, enjoying the gossip and rumour is an integral part of the game.

HGSA puts on a lively monthly programme of events normally held at the Turnbridge and if you haven’t been before we recommend you give it a try.
