Anderson hails Cudjoe – McGillvary combination

Huddersfield Giants coach Paul Anderson is very happy with the way that Leroy Cudjoe and Jermaine McGillvary have combined this season.

The two threequarters have been an impressive part of the Giants’ success so far this season, and both have been tipped for England places in recent weeks.

“There’s no doubt they’re a very good combination, aren’t they?” Anderson told the Huddersfield Examiner.

“They know exactly what each other’s doing and are always helping each other out.

“Again, Leroy’s another player who’s level of ability is ridiculous. He’s without doubt one of the best players in his position.

“We’ve managed to get one or two little things out of his game and got the ball in his hands a bit quicker, and it’s reaping its rewards.

“He’s doing well, Jerry’s doing well, and so are the others on our right side, like Jamie Ellis and Jack Hughes.”

McGillvary’s form, in particular, has had him strongly tipped for an England starting spot by some observers.

Anderson feels that a surge of confidence in his own ability has helped McGillvary relax and improve.

“We used to talk in the past about how Jerry had the potential to be a rep player, and he was having none of it,” the coach added.

“But with the confidence he now possesses he genuinely knows he has the ability, which I always knew he had.

“Whether he does get his rep call for England remains to be seen, but the fact we’re talking about it shows he’s a good player and must be doing something right.”
