CHRIS THORMAN and his Giants are determined to put on a top Challenge Cup show for injured teammate Albert Torrens.
That's the message from the club as they prepare to head for Halifax for Sunday's fourth-round derby clash at The Shay (3.00).
Torrens has been ruled out for the season with a serious knee injury suffered during the 36-22 Super League triumph at Castleford.
And Thorman has revealed the players are desperate to respond to the major blow by winning the contest for the popular Australian.
"Unfortunately, injuries are part and parcel of our game," said the Giants captain, who was one of several players carrying slight knocks earlier in the week.
"But when they are as bad as the one suffered by Alby it hits you very hard as a squad.
"In fact, when we found out how bad it was, it did make it difficult to concentrate at training.
"Yet even though Alby won't be with us on the field, he still has a big part to play at the club.
"He was instrumental in our solid start to the season and his absence will spur us on to make sure we carry on his good work.
"The best way to react to Alby's bad luck is to put on a top show for him on Sunday."
