NEW Giants recruit James Evans is relishing the chance to taste the Huddersfield Super League atmosphere for the first time at the McAlpine Stadium tomorrow.
The former Canberra Raiders centre will make his home debut against London Broncos (5.30) and is determined to make a positive impression in front of his home fans.
Evans has already chalked up three appearances and scored two tries with the Giants on the road.
But he is savouring the chance to make his mark in front of the public of Huddersfield.
"What has really struck me about the game in England is the way the fans get right behind their team," said the Australian, who grabbed his side's opening try at Bradford Bulls a week ago.
"The crowds aren't as big as back home, but they make far more noise. It's fantastic.
"I can't wait to sample the atmosphere at the McAlpine tomorrow.
"In the three away games I've played, our fans have always made themselves heard. I don't know about anyone else, but it's helped give me a lift.
"So I'm hoping there's even more noise from the Giants fans tomorrow, and we can back that up by getting back on the winning track."
The 23-year-old has wasted little time establishing himself as a solid performer, and he is certain to start in the centres again tomorrow.
But even though he's made such a positive start, he believes there's still a lot more to come.
"Coaches Jon Sharp and Lee St Hilaire have been great in helping me to settle in, and that's why I'm quite pleased with the start I've made," he added.
"But there's still some improvement to be made, especially on my attack, and hopefully everyone will see that tomorrow.
"After three away games I think we're all looking forward to playing at the McAlpine, and hoepfully giving the fans something to shout about."
