IN-FORM Steve Snitch is predicting an exciting – and successful – run-in to the end of the Giants’ season.
The 24-year-old was a key performer as Huddersfield fought back from a 13-0 half-time deficit to win 24-23 at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at the weekend.
It was a victory which brought to an end a run of five Super League fixtures without a win, with back-rower Snitch believing it will give his side the confidence to mount a successful play-off challenge.
That process continues at fifth-placed Harlequins on Saturday, which is clearly a massive test for the Giants, who are ninth.
But ex-Wakefield favourite Snitch knows the right result can be achieved.
“This game is another tough one,’’ he said.
“But the win at Wakefield will do us no harm whatsoever. We had to dig really deep, and it showed we’re still capable of beating those other teams who are competing with us for a top-six spot.
“I’m sure if we can continue to play as well as we did in the second half at Wakefield we’ll have a great chance.
“To be honest, we don’t dwell too much on the games that have gone before – I didn’t know the win at Wakefield was our first in six League games until someone told me – and we don’t like to look too far ahead.
“But we are aware we’ve got a decent run-in ahead of us, and that we’ve got a great chance of making the play-offs for the first time if we can maintain the form we showed at the weekend.
“As far as I’m concerned, the next two months should be really exciting!”
