Anderson: Giants have plenty of improving to do for play-offs

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson believes the Giants have to up their game if they are to have any chance in the play-offs.

The Giants defeated Hull FC 38-28 in round 26 to move into fifth place in Super League, but Anderson sees a lot of room for improvement.

“We won, that was the be all and end all, but we have got to be better,” he said.

“The performance was patchy, we just did enough but we have to give credit to Hull. When we decided to work together and do things we looked good.

“We were nice and direct and we had the big blokes running hard and finishing some decent tries along with forcing some errors defensively.

“We conceded five tries and that’s what happens when you take shortcuts and ‘just do enough’. Hull were a team that came with no pressure on them and just wanted to play. They had some good young kids making their debuts and that can be dangerous.

“I thought after thirty minutes that we made the decision to start and play.

“We can’t keep taking that attitude into games, if we keep taking that forward then that is going to bite us because we have some challenges ahead. We have a St Helens team on Friday that have to win to win some silverware.”
