Tickets for the Giants trip to Leigh are on sale until 4pm today (Friday).
Huddersfield Giants star Danny Brough spoke to giantsrl.com ahead of Saturday’s visit to Leigh Centurions at the Leigh Sports Village, kick off 3pm
Brough and the Giants are coming off the back of their best win of the Qualifiers so far, a 40-4 victory over London Broncos, and the half-back was pleased to be back out on the field.
“It was good to get 80 minutes under my belt. I thought we put a really strong defensive performance together in the second half and gave ourselves a good platform to build on.”
After being one of the stand out performers last week, Brough was keen to highlight the contributions of other Giants.
“We’ve got a good squad and the players have done a good job. We’ve won the last three, two games without me. The boys are doing well, people are coming into the team and done well in the team.
“I did my job and if everyone does their job, it makes us a better team. I thought Leroy was outstanding and deserved man of the match.”
The Giants scored plenty of tries through their second row forwards against the Broncos and Brough played a key part in that success.
“They are big guys running at little fellas and sometimes it’s easier to give them the ball and let them run, you don’t have to create much. That’s what happened at the weekend, players weren’t coming forward in defence and the big fellas were running over them.”
Looking forward to this weekend’s game, Brough knows that the Giants will be tested by a highflying Centurions outfit.
“It’s a big game, every game is a big game in the Qualifiers otherwise we’re going to be stuck in that million pound game. We’ve just got to keep focused and try and grind out a result against a physical side.”
“Leigh are a good team, they’ve beat two Super League teams. We have to be one of those Super League teams that turn them over. That’s our job and something we need to do.”
“They stay in the grind and come strong in the second half like they did against Hull KR. We’ll be looking to build on our own game and keep our game strong in the second half.”
The Giants number six is looking forward to seeing as many Giants fans over on the other side of the Pennines.
“The fans are important in every game and if many can travel it’ll make it easier for us. It’s all on the day and both teams will be going at it, so it should be a good game.”
Giants supporters are advised to purchase their tickets through the Club as this will be a busy game and fans who wish to travel by coach need to book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets for this game will remain on sale until 4pm on Friday 9th September.
