Shaun Lunt returning to top form, says Huddersfield Giants boss

Huddersfield Giants head coach Paul Anderson has backed hooker Shaun Lunt, insisting he is getting back to his best as the Giants begin to put their season back together.

The team who finished top of Super League in 2013 had suffered a stuttering start to the season – including an early exit from the Tetley’s Challenge Cup. However, back-to-back wins against Salford and Wakefield over Easter have given their campaign a shot in the arm – with Lunt playing a key role in both.

And that has led Anderson claiming that Lunt is slowly but surely returning to optimum form, as the Giants look to make use of their all-important week off this weekend.

“Lunty’s really getting back into his stride and it was good for him to get some time under his belt against Wakefield, when he played the full 80 minutes,” said Anderson.

“We considered pulling him at one point, but we didn’t and what he did was push through it. That’s a good sign for him, especially because he got a knock to a knee on Friday and still got through the full game on Monday.

“He’ll certainly benefit from that and hopefully contribute even more in the games ahead.”
