TRIUMPHANT Giants coach Jon Sharp has warned his players not to get too carried away after cruising to victory at Leigh in his side's Super League X opener.
Huddersfield were in a totally different class as they notched a superb 30-12 victory.
It's the first time the Giants have won away from home on the opening day of a Super League season.
And the manner of victory suggests Sharp's side could be a major force in 2005.
But the Giants chief knows next Sunday's first home game against Hull will give more of an indication, with the message right now to keep feet firmly on the ground.
"We're delighted to have gone over to Leigh and got the right result," said Sharp.
"We always knew it was going to be a difficult match. This was Leigh's first game in Super League and it was inevitable they were going to be pumped up.
"But we dealt with all that superbly and put in a really good performance.
"Leigh caught us on a good day, and I think we would have beaten most teams in the competition with the performance we put in.
"But there's no way we'll be getting carried away.
"Last year we didn't finish off what we started when we made a good start and then saw it slip away.
"We've learned a lot of lessons from that, and I'm determined we don't make the same mistakes again.
"Our poor finish to this game when we conceded those two tries shows there's still plenty of work to be done, but overall, however, we've got to be pleased."
One of the highlights was the performance of new arrivals Brad Drew, Chris Thorman and Paul Jackson.
Hooker Drew put in a top show, even though he has still not fully recovered from illness - something which prevented Paul March from making the 17.
