Patrick confident Huddersfield can escape bottom of league

Huddersfield Giants forward Larne Patrick insists that he believes the team are good enough to haul themselves away from the bottom of Super League.

The Giants head to West Yorkshire rivals Leeds on Friday night, with both still looking for their first point of 2016 after three straight losses in the league.

And the towering forward says that as soon as they get the monkey off their back and win their first game, things will be a lot easier – and he reiterated that the Giants are good enough to get away from the scramble at the bottom of the league.

“I think it will be intense, obviously every game with Leeds is tense but with the run of form for both teams there is that added pressure with both wanting the win,” he told the club’s official website.

“We are both good teams and I have no doubt that at the end of the year we won’t be at the bottom end of the table we just need to rack up wins.

“It is just getting that first one out the way, it’s just a matter of the best team on the day will win.”
