Huddersfield Giants star Brett Ferres believes the club have proven they can cope without key half-back Danny Brough – admitting it is great to finally dispel the myth they can’t play without their captain.
The Giants cemented a top-four finish without needing the services of Brough last weekend, who was sidelined due to injury. Huddersfield ensured they would finish in fourth courtesy of that 17-16 win against St Helens, and will have to go again without the Albert Goldthorpe Medal winner tonight as they take on Wigan in the opening match of the play-offs.
And although Ferres says it will great to get Brough back when he does return from injury, it was fantastic to show to everyone that the team can play without him out on the field.
“Everyone keeps telling us we can’t win without Danny Brough and Huddersfield Giants can’t are nothing without Danny Brough – but obviously we don’t believe that in our own camp,” Ferres said. “I think the younger lads and the people who have stepped up have proved that we can play without Danny and we can beat a very good side without Danny in the team.
“Obviously to get Danny back will be a massive boost for us, but we have shown we can do it without him now which is great to finally prove.”
