DELIGHTED Giants coach Nathan Brown believes his side will have to go and win at Leeds Rhinos next Friday night to prove they are the real deal.

In-form Huddersfield returned to the top of the Super League table with a highly convincing 29-10 win over previous leaders Warrington Wolves at the Galpharm Stadium.

The Giants performance earned praise from beaten Wolves coach Tony Smith, who admitted his former club thoroughly deserved their victory.

But Brown is refusing to get carried with his side’s exploits at this stage.

“It is obviously a great effort to beat a side like Warrington and keep them to 10 points,” said Brown.

“But there is still a long way to go before we can think about how far we can get in the competition.

“The good teams are the ones who end up becoming champions, and they are the ones who can back up one good win with another.

“Wigan managed it last year and that’s what we have to aspire to.

“That’s exactly what we have the opportunity to do next week at Leeds.

“This week have beaten one title contender and now we have the chance to beat another.

“We’ll know a lot more about ourselves and how good a side we are after that.”

Former Giants coach Smith added: “We can’t make excuses for what went on and we were beaten by a better side who thoroughly deserved their victory.
