Anderson hails Brough after win in Perpignan

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson paid tribute to half-back Danny Brough after the Giants beat Catalan 28-20 with 12 men.

The Giants trailed 16-14 when Luke Robinson saw red for an off-the-ball tackle on Dragons full back Morgan Escare in the 54th minute.

But they rallied despite the numerical disadvantage, and tries from Leroy Cudjoe and Shaun Lunt, plus three further goals from Brough, led them to victory.

Anderson told the club’s official website: “It rates as a very, very dogged and determined win.

“Broughy’s been on a drip for a few days. He’s not been well. He got a virus. His wife was sick at the airport and his kids have been ill as well.

“We had a lot of adversity. A lot of barriers kept being put in front of us but we kept knocking them down. The commitment and camaraderie amongst the group were clear to see.”

It keeps Huddersfield second in the Super League table, just a point behind leaders Wigan, and three points clear of the chasing pack.

The Giants host third place Warrington at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday.
