Huddersfield Giants head coach Paul Anderson admits he is looking to exact revenge on former club Bradford, as they look to avenge two defeats to the Bulls last season.
The Bulls picked up a surprise 43-18 win at the John Smiths Stadium at the beginning of the 2013 season, before backing that up with a 58-6 win over a youthful Giants side in the final game of the regular season last year.
The Giants did beat their West Yorkshire rivals at the Magic Weekend but Anderson – a former Super League winner with the Bulls – admits it was tough to take, and is keen to get one back on his former club.
“I think we owe Bradford one,” declared Anderson.
“In my time in charge at the Giants, it’s 2-1 to Bradford, and I’m looking forward to making it 2-2 this weekend!
“They (the Bulls) took advantage of a poor start by us early in the season and then completed a League double in the two regular rounds when we fielded a bunch of kids.
“The saving grace was the win at Magic Weekend, and we’ll obviously be looking for something similar to that on Sunday.”
