EXCITED Lee Greenwood is ready to put 12 weeks of frustration behind him and help inspire the Giants to a vital Super League victory at Hull tonight (6.05).
The 24-year-old completed his signing until the end of the season yesterday afternoon after securing his release from London Broncos.
The England international started the year in excellent tryscoring form, with six touchdowns in the Broncos' opening nine games.
But since then, he has been frozen out by London coach Tony Rea and is looking at the move to the Giants as a way of getting his Super League career back on track.
"The last few months have been really frustrating, so tonight can't come soon enough," said Greenwood, who began his career with hometown club Halifax.
"There are 12 weeks of pent-up anger inside me, and I can't wait to make my first run and make that first tackle.
"I'm feeling really fit, and in a sense it seems as if I'm about to play my first game following pre-season training.
"The aim is to hit the ground running and take it from there.
"This is my chance to re-establish myself back in Super League after three very tough months on the outside.
"I've not got long to make a big impact here, and if I don't make an early impression I know there will be one or two at the Giants waiting in the wings to take my spot.
"So, it's up to me to get straight into it at Hull tonight.
"It's a big game for us, because a play-off spot for the Giants is still very much in our sights.
"I know the squad are definitely capable of making it."
Greenwood is expected to go straight into the starting line-up, taking the place on the wing of Stuart Donlan, who is the favourite to be named at full-back in the absence of suspended Paul Reilly.
A win or draw for the Giants would take them back above Wigan into seventh spot.
They start tonight's Sky TV clash as underdogs, but Greenwood believes the Giants have the ability to take the points.
"I've only trained with the boys for a couple of days, but there's a lot of quality in this squad, and everybody's really looking forward to tonight," he added.
