They may have won convincingly against the London Broncos with a scoreline of 34-6, but that does not mean that Huddersfield Giants coach Paul Anderson was happy – labelling some of his team’s play as ‘pathetic’.

It was Giants hooker Shaun Lunt that starred, scoring 2 of his side’s 6 tries, as Huddersfield maintained their 100% record winning their first two games of the year.

On the back of a truly comprehensive 40-4 win over St Helens last week, Anderson felt that his side lacked the clinical play from last week and were poorer across the board this week.

“We were just about or slightly below average and, frankly, some of our play was pathetic,” said Anderson.

“The way this team is set up is to be direct. But for long periods we decided to play the touchline not the tryline.

“We’ve got a group of disappointed people in the dressing room after a 34-6 win, which shows where we’re at.”

On the other side of the coin, for Broncos coach Tony Rea, whilst pleased with the overall performance from his side, he pinpointed the loss down to individual errors.

“It was untidy,” he said.

“There were too many errors and it took a lot of energy out of us. We need to be more careful with our decision-making.”

The Broncos side was largely different to the one that played last week due to injuries, but Rea did not want to use that as an excuse for the loss.

“It’s a squad game,” he said.

“The lads out there were more than capable of doing their jobs. And I liked how we were as a team. There were positive signs.”
