EORL CRABTREE wants to celebrate his new three-year deal by helping the Giants gain more Super League respect.
The 24-year-old admits the contract extension has crowned an incredible few months, both for the forward and his club.
But while Crabtree is delighted with the way the Giants have rocketed up the Super League table into fourth spot, he feels his hometown club still hasn't received the recognition they deserve.
And he is hoping another top-quality display at Salford tonight (8.00) will help him in his mission to change all that.
"I think people are slowly starting to sit up and take note," said Crabtree.
"But, overall, I definitely feel the Giants are a club that don't get the recognition they deserve.
"It often feels to us that we are often an after-thought when it comes to Super League, and it's not a nice feeling.
"I just hope what we are doing now will start to change people's perception of us.
"And, hopefully, that process will continue against Salford tonight.
"The way we performed to beat the Bulls a week ago did catch the eye of many of the neutrals.
"But we certainly won't do ourselves any favours if we don't back it up with another good performance at The Willows.
"There's no way they can carry on ignoring us if we win again and make it eight Super League victories on the trot.
"That's the way to earn respect."
Huddersfield head to Salford as the red-hot favourites to triumph and inflict even more misery on the coachless City Reds, who are four points adrift at the foot of the table.
Their big 66-6 defeat at Catalans signalled the end for coach Karl Harrison, with rugby director Steve Simms in temporary charge.
And Crabtree knows this week's upheaval makes them a potentially dangerous side.
"We're going to be red-hot favourites, which is something we're not really used to," said Crabtree.
"In a situation like this, you could easily fall into the trap of being complacent, and we can't afford to do that.
"We'll be going there and treating them with the utmost respect, because that's what they deserve.
"There's often a positive reaction when a team loses its coach, and we've got to be aware of that.
"But our main concern is us and making sure we produce another good performance."
