Huddersfield Giants FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/SPORTYORKSHIRE 1 “It’s been coming all year. I’m not one to make excuses but we’ve had our injuries, having to bring new people in and it’s just been very unsettled. To go out there with a settled thirteen, it just gave us the platform to stand up and step up and you know, on Magic Weekend’s, everyone has to step up and I believe we did that.” “… Every time we concede a try, I take that personally so for me it’s good and for the team it’s massive, it shows we can go for eighty minutes. This part of the table is so tight, so when it gets down to the actual crunch time and you look at the top five, points difference could be the difference between a team making it and not making it. “We realised that once we got our foot in the door, we said let’s just strangle them and go for it and be relentless in what we do today.” The club also works hard to play an important role in their local area through their Huddersfield Giants Community Trust which is a non-profit organisation delivering sports and education-based initiatives into the community. They state on their official website, “We are here to inspire, create opportunities, promote being active, and as a whole build a stronger community where everyone belongs. Huddersfield Giants Community Trust has the ability to engage, improve community cohesion, improve fitness and well-being and raise the hopes and aspirations of the people of Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield.” There is clearly much to admire about the work that Huddersfield Giants carries out both on and off the field. If they continue in the same manner they should be able to look forwards to a bright and successful future for many years to come. If they continue to produce performances like the one against Hull then this may prove to be a campaign to remember as well. • Perm • Te Proud Sponsors of Huddersfield Giants RLFC At the forefront of Engineering & Manufacturing Recruitment • Aerospace • Building & Construction Products • Automotive & Fleet • Chemical & Pharmaceuticals • Energy & Utilities • Food & FMCG • General Manufacturing • Oil & Gas • Permanent Recruitment • Contract Recruitment • Temporary Recruitment • Executive Search • Retained Recruitment Projects TEL: 0808 178 2523 WEB: EMAIL: E3 Recruitment (E3R) is at the forefront of manufacturing and engineering recruitment in Yorkshire and the UK.

Commenting on E3R’s involvement with Huddersfield Giants, E3R Director James Soden said: “E3R was approached to become a part of the Huddersfield Giants rugby league family and an official club partner in 2014. There were a number of attractions for us as a business to really engage with the Giants at that time, as there was a great deal of synergy between us and the club with it receiving a lot of recognition and coverage on the M62 corridor, with rugby league clubs based all along the route, where many of E3R clients are based.” “We have not only acquired new clients via other club partners, but our involvement has also provided a great environment to meet and entertain existing client. We have also been very keen to provide our employees and workers with the opportunity to utilise the hospitality on offer. “Personally, I was introduced to rugby league when I re-located to Huddersfield for university back in 2001. I was more of a union player before that time, but I have quickly become part of the rugby league family. “I would just like to say how engaging and personal the club is, it provides an amazing family environment, with partner training days - where we are able to eat and train with the first team at the John Smith’s stadium - plus charity fun days, and a real acceptance to children and families being a huge part of the club. In my opinion there really is no other professional sport that is so accessible and engaging for all.” 36 Issue 01
