A QUALITY quartet. That's the way the Giants' four new signings have been described.
And it's hard to argue with that assessment.
One of the new arrivals is an Australian Test centre in Michael De Vere, while fellow countryman Brad Drew has played City Origin and won the Dally M for best hooker in the Australian NRL in 2001.
Of the two Englishmen, both are former Giants players who are returning `home' after establishing themselves for rival top-flight clubs.
Chris Thorman is back at the Giants after playing for top Australian club Parramatta Eels, having earned a place in the Great Britain train-on squad, and Paul Jackson returns following solid spells at Castleford and Wakefield.
But the vast majority of the Giants' signing attention has focused on the capture of De Vere.
The Brisbane Broncos legend, who is the club's record points scorer, could have had his pick of any side in the Super League competition.
But he chose to join the Giants, and has no regrets about it.
"I've been asked many times why I chose to join the Giants," said the 28-year-old, who is still a month away from making his debut after undergoing a knee reconstruction towards the end of last season.
"But there was so much that appealed to me about coming to Huddersfield, not least of which was the fact that I believe I can make a positive impact at the club.
"One of the things I was keen to do was to play for a club where I could make a difference, and I believe I can do that here.
"It seemed to me the Giants are a club that needed just a few good players who could bring in a winning culture, and then things could really take off.
"The very top clubs are already there, and joining a club like that didn't seem to be that great a challenge.
"And as I have always enjoyed a challenge, the Giants seemed a great move."
Only time will tell if De Vere's latest move meets all his expectations.
He arrives at the Galpharm after spending nine glorious years at top Australian NRL club Brisbane Broncos.
Before then he played for St George Under 19s, so moves haven't figured highly on his curriculum.
That makes the switch to the Giants a major development in De Vere's career.
But the initial signs suggest he'll adapt comfortably to his new lifestyle.
"I've only been in Huddersfield a month or so, but I've already got a good feel for the place," added De Vere, who has arrived here in West Yorkshire with his wife Olivia and daughters Brienna (three) and Yasmine (one).
"It obviously helped that I have played at the stadium before (in 2003) and scoring a try for Australia in the third Test against Great Britain at the venue was a brilliant feeling.
"The stadium is great and the playing surface is absolutely fantastic.
"So I'm hoping scoring a try at the stadium is a good omen and that it will be the first of many in the next few years.
"In a way the ground gave the Giants a bit of a head start when I was looking for a move, because I knew from day one that if I came to Huddersfield I would be joining a club that boasts fantastic facilities.
"But the more I looked at the club, the more appealing it became and I knew it would suit me down to the ground.
"I was keen to find out as much as possible about the place and the people, and that included two members of the Broncos coaching staff.
"Those were our head coach (and Australia coach) Wayne Bennett, who said how much he enjoyed playing a season in Huddersfield and how friendly everyone was.
"And the other was Darren Smith, who had been coached by Jon Sharp at St Helens.
"Darren said he was great at his job and I should jump at the chance of working alongside him.
"So, here I am!"
