Michael Lawrence: returned from injury and scored a try in Easter Monday's thumping of Widnes
Huddersfield Giants' Michael Lawrence has expressed his delight at making a try-scoring return against Widnes after recovering from injury.
The talented 22-year-old, who operated in the pack in Easter Monday's 62-6 thrashing of the Vikings, missed the first nine rounds of action due to ankle ligament damage.
Lawrence crossed the try line in the 26th minute of their comfortable home win, although he has conceded he was nervous about how the ankle would hold up before the match.
"I was a bit nervous before the game, because you never know how the ankle is going to hold up after you've suffered ligament damage."
"I don't think it could have gone any better, to be honest," Lawrence told the club's official website.
"I was a bit nervous before the game, because you never know how the ankle is going to hold up after you've suffered ligament damage.
"But it felt strong and I managed to get through the full 80 minutes with very little trouble. On top of that, Shaun Lunt put me over for a try, so there's no reason to complain at all.
"That in itself was great, but to win, and win in the manner we did, made it so much better.
"At the end of the day, the victory was the most important thing, because we were desperate to come up with the right response after the way things had gone at Salford on the Friday. So, all in all, it was a great day."
