GIANTS prop Paul Jackson is relishing the chance to lock horns with two of Super League’s most feared front-row forwards at the Galpharm tonight.
Up against Jackson and his Huddersfield teammates will be Warrington’s Great Britain prop Adrian Morley and New Zealand counterpart Paul Rauhihi.
But rather than being daunted by the prospect of facing such formidable foes, Jackson (left) can’t wait to get cracking!
“They are a really tough side, who are coming off the back of a good win against Bradford,” said Jackson.
“They have a big set of forwards and I’m sure it will be a good contest.
“It was a close game at the Millennium Stadium in May and we were disappointed we didn’t win that day.
“Obviously, if we are to gain revenge tonight it’s going to be down to the forwards to lay the platform. And, I have to admit, I’m really looking forward to the challenge.
“I enjoy playing against the internationals in my position, and this week it’s Adrian Morley and Paul Rauhihi.
“As far as I’m concerned, it’s good for me to compare and compete against some of the best front rowers in the world, and I intend to enjoy this latest experience, especially if we win!
“In our last three home games we’ve played really well and we want to back that up again tonight.
“Beating Bradford was a great day for the club, as was the win against Harlequins where nobody really expected us to get a victory.
“That was a real backs-against-the-wall performance.
“To be honest, we have nothing to lose from now on in, the pressure will be on the other teams, so hopefully we can post a few more wins.
“The key for us is to get a bit of consistency together and make sure we finish off the season strongly.
“We’d obviously like to get more wins under our belt and move away from the bottom part of the table.
“We all know we have under-achieved this year but we haven’t had a settled side on a consistent basis.
“There’s no doubt that if we play to our full potential, then we are a genuine threat to any side in the competition.
“So, the aim right now is to make sure we can produce our best, because if we do that then we’ll give ourselves every chance.
“Warrington are a good, tough side, but we know they can be beaten.”
