Brough can’t wait to get season started at Wigan

Huddersfield and Scotland captain Danny Brough is relishing kicking the 2014 Super League season off against last year’s champions Wigan this Friday.

The 31-year-old had a massive part to play in the Giants’ League Leaders’ Shield win in 2013 but is still ruing their failure to finish the job off in the play-offs.

“Round one against Wigan will be like a final and that’s the way we’ll be treating it,” said the former Wakefield and Hull half-back.

”We failed at the back end again last year. I don’t know if a few people thought it was already ‘job done’.

“We have to knuckle down this year to bounce back and there’s no better place to start than Wigan.”

Who do you fancy to kick their season off in perfect style? The reigning champions, who have the World Club Challenge to prepare for, or the fresh, pressure-free Giants? Let us know by commenting below.

Huddersfield took on Wigan in the season opener in 2010 and pulled off a superb win. You can relive that match by watching the following video.
