TRY SCORING hero Michael Lawrence believes the Giants will have revenge on their minds when they face Catalan Dragons this weekend.
The Super League sides go head-to-head in the Carnegie Challenge Cup at the Galpharm Stadium on Sunday, with a place in the quarter-finals at stake.
The tie is just three weeks after the Dragons inflicted a heartbreaking 13-12 Super League defeat on Huddersfield in the south of France.
It was a loss that hit the Giants hard, with their inability to take a number of chances proving their downfall.
But Lawrence, who scored that magnificent try to beat St Helens 40-18 on Sunday to remain second in the Super League table, feels this is the ideal time to make amends. “We owe Catalan one, it’s as simple as that,” said in-form centre Lawrence.
“We know we didn’t play to our potential in France the other week, and this is our chance to make up for it.
“To be honest, we only had ourselves to blame for that defeat. Had we taken all our chances we’d have won fairly comfortably.
“That’ll give us a lot of confidence for this Sunday.
“The win over Saints the other day suggests we’re getting back to our attacking best and, hopefully, we’ll show that again this weekend.”
Sunday’s Challenge Cup clash is an all-pay fixture.
Adult admission is £15, with £10 for concessions and £5 for children.
Supporters can pay on the turnstiles, while junior season-ticket holders get in free by using the voucher in their season-ticket booklet.
