Hudds 22 Leigh 12 early doors 2nd arf.

Sounds like James Bell is having a bit of a game according to my pal who's at the game.

Hudds try by Senior, BBC Radio Manc commentary team reckon it was offside.

26-12 now.

England RU Coach Eddie Jones : "I spent a bit of time up at Hull and I like the full back there Connor, he's a tough, skilful player"

Jake Connor : "I've never played Union, it doesn't look that hard, you never say never but it looks too boring for me"

Jack Ashworth having a mare, been in the bin (twice maybe?) and made crucial errors under his own posts leading to at least two Hudds tries.

Now 42-20 after the latest error.

Mate of mine couldn't make the game today, turned Radio Manc off because it was patently so insane. As he said "Twitter was better. Let that sink in, twitter was better than Radio Manc"

Giants never really looked like they had to get our of 3rd today, and typically we're mostly very good but just switched off to let Leigh score, one eye on Mad Monday I'm sure.

 

But you can see the changes Watto has wrought, and with the new additions and a full preseason it could be a good season ahead.

Ollie Russel has had a stack of game time this season and is absolutely looking the business at 7 for us and with Will Pryce in the mix we have some superb talent in the halves.

Bring on 2022!

 Bless, Leigh never got out of 3rd gear either. #Underachievers  🤪

Your point being? One team won in cruise control. The other had 40 points put on them.

To call Leigh under-achievers is harsh on underachievement 

Bless, congratulations on your 9th place finish with your expensively assembled squad. #mustdobetter  🙄

A nothing game between 2 nothing teams and one i said would be you score we score and i was more or less right.

Massive game again from Olly Russell who is now starting to look like the player most of our fans said he would never be, another superb game from him, Josh Jones is an absolute beast and as someone asked does he bounce of EVERY 1st tackle? well yes he usually does.

Will did what Will does - ripped another hole in another defence despite been only on the field 2 minutes.

Big shout outs to the Huddersfield legends triangle of Bruno, Jerry and Leroy, still pretty much the glue in our side even after 12/13 years.

Leigh were poor but worked out we were poor down our left and took advantage a few times.

A win yes but my biggest joy was it was the last game of the season and we can get back to a proper one(hopefully) next year.

Ironically the expense was mainly sat in the stands injured or disinterested for most of the season, it was the kids and the back up players who stood up for us this year.

BBC Radio Manc commentators were Trevor Hunt and Jack Dearden and they came out with this halfway through the second half...

Jack Dearden : "Jack Ashworth has just knocked on under his own posts, that's his second bad error, his first earlier on this half was when Leigh's problems started"

Trevor Hunt : "Leigh's problems started in March, Jack."

Well, I guess that an issue on a locked thread is now settled, for according to the BBC match report, "Huddersfield Giants signed off their Super League season with a high-scoring win over relegated Leigh Centurions."

 

Four legs good - two legs bad

It was a nothing of a game, somewhat entertaining due to the lack of any kind of jeopardy, both teams made errors allowing the other to take advantage.

Both teams played some decent stuff at times and scored some tries, Will Pryce's was a thing of beauty, he'd be getting talked up of getting the England team built around him if he played for any of the darlings.

Ultimately even in 2nd or 3rd gear we were just too good for Leigh.

But like Daz, I'm just glad it's over now and we can hopefully look forward to a proper, hopefully more entertaining and free flowing season next year.

I hear they have changed it to Dissapointed Monday at the Giants after a season of so much expectation, new coach, expensive squad, good young talent but still jointly in the bottom 3 on win %, Leigh did far better than expected and won 2 games even though they were against the 11th and 12th placed teams, I know only to well of all the pitfalls of Leigh Centurions and supporting them nothing to come back here with Ant, only an admittance of yes we should have done do much better than we have.

I very rarely listen to the RL on BBC Radio Manchester now, it’s Dearden who puts me off.
