Huddersfield Giants Head Coach unhappy with second half display

Foster Care

Huddersfield Giants Head Coach Paul Anderson revealed that he had mixed emotions after Huddersfield’s 48-32 win over Castleford Tigers which sent the Claret and Gold to the top of Super League.

A stunning first-half display saw the Giants romp into a 36-4 lead at the break. However, Darryl Powell’s side produced an impressive fight back and got within eight points of the Claret and Gold before late tries from Aaron Murphy and Kyle Wood finally tamed the Tigers.

Victory saw Anderson’s side leapfrog Wigan Warriors at the summit of the Super League, but the Huddersfield Head Coach refused to get carried away:

“The first half I thought we showed some real intent in what we wanted to do. We went out there and wanted to put a mark on the team. It didn’t matter today who we were playing today. We spoke very little about Castleford and we spoke a lot about ourselves and the choices that we make. Eorl, Koppy (Craig Kopzcak) and Woody (Kyle Wood) at the start of the game were outstanding.

“At half-time I said the game was 0-0. But we were always in the mindset of thinking points instead of what happened in the first-half where we went set for set and Cas broke and broke. We were thinking points all the time and not pressure.

“Fair play to Castleford, they've got some good football in them and if Darryl can get some good time with them in pre-season and work on their defence I'm sure they'll do well."
