This should be shouted from the rooftops;

GIANTS PLAY SUPER LEAGUE GAME WITH ONLY TWO OVERSEAS PLAYERS

How many other teams can/will field so few overseas players in a game this season? Not many I would suggest.

Even the mighty Wigan, with the all the so called talent in that area, played with 9 overseas players at Hull. Or is that Nobby?

Well done Giants.

well said it was great to see so many english players doing so well for the giants, in fact we have only 5 overseas players in the squad much less than most i would say.

Think from memory think that Leeds & Hull FC are the only other teams with 5 overseas.
Good effort from these sides. Long may it continue.

Thats the way it should be, we'd all watch our teams whoever was playing..
But "mighty wigan"?? Those jokers wouldn't pick a home grown player if he was the best at the club

After reading several clubs message boards it's interesting note that fans are feeling a bit let down by their imports so far.

Players who we are led to believe are superstars have been poor and the fitness levels of players like Dean Widders, Mark Riddell and Dave Solomona are a joke considering the money they are reputedly on.

The way forward for all Super League clubs is to put time and effort into developing British players and the Giants are doing that well atm.

Odd how Celtic takes more heat for this than the rest. People should be singling out this team at the other end of the spectrum, a model to emulate.
