Schofield blasts ‘pathetic’ Huddersfield

Garry Schofield has launched another attack on the Huddersfield Giants team following their recent defeat to Wakefield.

After labelling Danny Brough and Jamie Ellis as the worst halfback pairing in Super League while writing for League Express, the Rugby League Hall Of Famer went on another tirade during Radio Yorkshire’s ‘The Last Tackle.

Discussing their Challenge Cup quarter-final defeat to the Wildcats, Schofield said: “They were pathetic, absolutely pathetic.”

“The person I feel sorry for is Ken Davy. Ken Davy was absolutely seething after the game, and rightly so. The dedication he has put into the club since 1996, and what Ken Davy said about them players he said rightfully so. Totally dishonest, they were totally dishonest in that performance and they were absolutely pathetic.

“My question to the players is if you don’t want to be at Huddersfield, go to Ken Davy and be honest with him.

“I also feel sorry for Andy Kelly because Andy Kelly might be wanting to put himself back in the shop window for a head coaching job in Super League, but with those performances aren’t going to help him one little bit. Those players have got rid of Paul Anderson, if they want to deny themselves on television as well that’s fine, but that performance was quite clearly not good enough, and Ken Davy and Andy Kelly do not deserve that sort of performance.

“As a team, forget about being a team because they’re not a team, it’s that simple.”
