Having successfully made the Super 8s series and making a final push to reach the top four, numerous players have impressed this season. Jermaine McGillvary is second in the Betfred Super League for metres made, Sebastine Ikahihifo has made the most tackle busts in the League and Ryan Hinchcliffe battling it out with Danny Houghton, Jon Wilkin and Matt Parcell to be the League’s top tackler. Sam Rapira, Shannon Wakeman, Dale Ferguson, Oliver Roberts, Ukuma Ta’ai and Paul Clough have all made their presence felt in the pack this season by regularly getting the Giants on the front foot for the backs to showcase their attacking talent.

Leroy Cudjoe, Lee Gaskell, Aaron Murphy, Danny Brough, Alex Mellor and Adam O’Brien have all fed off of the forwards and played a key role in the intricate play that has seen the Giants notch 605 Betfred Super League points. Danny Brough has been as influential as ever, guiding the Giants around the field with a sublime kicking game that sees him top the League for kick’s in play with over 250 this season.

New arrivals Jordan Rankin, Jordan Turner and Jake Mamo have hit the ground running this season and have contributed heavily despite limited time, with Jake Mamo scoring 12 tries in only 9 games, including stunning hat-tricks against Castleford Tigers and Catalans Dragons.

Young Giants Darnell McIntosh and Kruise Leeming have enjoyed extensive play time this season with Leeming battling with James Roby to be top of the League for metres made from scoots and being one of only two Giants players to have appeared in every match this season. McIntosh has touched down an impressive 12 tries in 21 games, including a memorable try away to Salford Red Devils and a brace in the 46-18 win over Hull FC. There’s also been 6 tries in 9 appearances from 20 year-old Sam Wood, who has stepped up in the centres this season and shown his first-team qualities.
