IN-FORM Luke Robinson has admitted he’s as delighted for the fans as much as he is for his own teammates that the Giants have strung back-to-back away wins together.
After failing to win away in their opening 10 Super League fixtures in 2008, the Giants have now won two on the trot – at Wigan and Castleford.
And Robinson believes his team owed it to the supporters to prove they could win on the road.
“Winning any game is always fantastic but, after the season we’ve had, these last two have been really sweet,” said the 24-year-old scrum half.
“I just hope the fans enjoyed them as much as we (the players) did, because they deserve to.
“It can’t have been easy travelling away to watch us this season, we’ve let them down on so many occasions.
“But you could see how much the wins meant to those fans who were at Wigan and Cas.
“And, personally, I’m really delighted for them, because we feel we owe it to them for all the earlier disappointments.
“The fans have a massive role to pay. They’ve done their bit so many times this year, but we haven’t done ours.
“Fortunately, everyone played their part yesterday and the result went exactly how we had hoped.
“We made a great start to the game, and then Cas fought back well to make it 14-14.
“It was then that the fans played their part.
“They really lifted us when it mattered – when we were being put under pressure – and with them keeping us going we got there in the end.
“You know it’s never going to be easy coming here, and we were delighted to get this victory.
“We’ve got another hard game coming up at Hull on Sunday. But I’m sure that we can do it for the fans again.”
