A decent piece in the Guardian about us.
Quote :
Some teams benefit from their reputations, others suffer unfairly, and either way they can be hard to shift. Throughout the Super League era, and possibly before that, St Helens have been known as the entertainers, and for good reason, given their penchant for brilliant tries and implausible comebacks. Huddersfield, in contrast, are generally described as a big, rough team - maybe there's a subliminal link to their Giants nickname? Yet in Saturday's game, admittedly against an injury-ravaged Saints, it was the Giants who produced some truly breathtaking moments, notably Danny Brough's individual try, and Leroy Cudjoe's stunning back-of-the-hand pass to send Michael Lawrence over for another. As Barrie McDermott pointed out in the Sky commentary, if Benji Marshall had thrown that pass for Wests Tigers, people like me would have been waxing lyrical, and feeding British rugby league's inferiority complex.

It's also worth noting that Saturday's Huddersfield team included a single overseas player - the excellent David Faiumu, whose unique sidestep must be among the best in world rugby of either code - and wondering again how many Giants will be in Steve McNamara's England team to face the Exiles at Headingley next month. Brough is now shaping as a cert at scrum half, but what about Cudjoe? He can sometimes look diffident and uncertain - their recent home defeat by Wigan offering a worrying example of that - but Saturday's pass was international class. It hasn't reached You Tube yet, but can be seen about five minutes into the BBC's Super League Show.

So are we the new entertainers?

We do score some great tries and totally out classed Saints, but we also do the tough stuff very well too. We are a well balanced quality outfit. Just need to keep the intensity up each and every game so we get some silverware this season.
