Oliver Roberts believes he’s now establishing himself as a Huddersfield Giants Super League player.

The 21-year-old former Bradford Bulls back-row forward was unable to break into Huddersfield’s senior side during his first year at the John Smith’s Stadium in 2015.

But with injuries meaning he’s been a virtual ever-present in 2016, Roberts is feeling more and more comfortable with every game he plays.

“I’d like to think I can class myself as a Super League player now,” said Roberts, who produced another very strong performance in last weekend’s narrow 16-14 defeat at Catalans Dragons.

“With every game I play I’m feeling more confident and comfortable, although I know how much I’ve still got to learn. I’m learning all the time.

“I’m getting a lot of tips off Joe (Wardle) and doing extras with Ukuma (Ta’ai), and that’s helping to bring my game on all the time as well.

“And to go to Catalans and feel as comfortable as I did out there is another positive for me. I didn’t feel intimidated by the opposition or the atmosphere at all, in fact I enjoyed it.

“I’d like to think that’s a sign that this is the level where I belong, and I’m looking forward to keeping on improving and getting even better.”
