IN-FORM Aussie hooker Brad Drew believes the Giants have nothing to fear from facing the might of Wigan in tonight's big Super League clash at the Galpharm Stadium (8.00).
The Warriors arrive in town on the back of impressive Easter wins over St Helens and Hull.
But despite Chris Thorman having failed a late fitness test on the back injury that forced him to miss last Sunday's St Helens' Cup-tie, 29-year-old former Canberra ace Drew believes the Giants have what it takes to beat their visitors and secure a fifth victory from nine top-flight starts.
"We respect Wigan, but we don't fear them," said Drew, whose head-to-head with Great Britain hooker Terry Newton could be one of the game's highlights.
"I think there could have been a touch of fear when we faced Leeds earlier in the season, and that contributed to the way we played that day.
"But we now know that if we approach games against the top clubs with the right attitude we have the ability to turn them over. We now have the self-belief that we can beat teams like Wigan, and that's what we intend to do tonight.
"We are going out there against Wigan and expecting to win, it's as simple as that.
"We know it's going to be pretty close, because Wigan are a great side, but we're really looking forward to it.
"There's probably about a 20% improvement still to come from us as a team, but we're getting there and know the wins help in that process.
"Right now I'm starting to feel pretty good about my game, and feeling pretty good about the way the team is playing.
"I'm absolutely loving it here, and Jon Sharp deserves a lot of credit for that.
"Everyone in the squad gets along really well, and when that's the case that's when I enjoy the game the most."
