CHRIS THORMAN chalked up 1,000 points in British rugby league then declared: "It was the win that mattered!"
The Giants captain was at the heart of his side's 46-16 Super League victory over Harlequins yesterday with a try and seven goals.
His penalty on the stroke of half-time took him past the magical 1,000 points barrier as the Giants secured four victories on the trot for the first time in their Super League history.
The win also helped Huddersfield move up to 10th in the table, one place above Hull KR, who they meet at Craven Park on Friday.
It was the victory over the Quins - and the fact the Giants now boast the best defensive record in Super League - that meant more to Thorman than topping 1,000 points.
"To be honest, I didn't have a clue I was so close to such a milestone going into the game," said the 26-year-old.
"All I was bothered about was doing my best to help us get another victory on the board.
"That would still have been the case if I had been aware of the milestone."
Thorman added: "Scoring more than 1,000 points is pleasing, but the main thing about rugby league is winning, and that's what we did.
"This was far from being our best performance.
"We were a bit loose in the first half, when our completion rate was well down.
"But a roasting at half-time seemed to do the trick.
"We need to pick things up again for Hull KR on Friday.
"It's good to know we've now moved above them in the table, but the important thing is making sure we carry on moving away from the foot."
Hull KR lost 28-24 at home to basement club Salford in yesterday's other match.
