Anderson hails ‘world-class’ McGillvary

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson has paid tribute to Jermaine McGillvary, hailing the winger’s fine display against Castleford Tigers on Thursday evening.

McGillvary turned in barnstorming display against Cas, scoring two tries and looking like an international winger.

“He’s a world class player isn’t he?” Anderson told his club’s official website.

“He’s a great player and I’d sooner be playing with him than against him.

“The form he’s in at the minute and the way he’s finishing things, he’s not just a try scorer he’s more of a yardage player, he causes teams a lot of problems when he’s bringing the ball back.

“I have joke with him that he’s going to be a front rower when he’s older because he carries the ball like a front rower but at a million miles an hour.”

Anderson also praised Giants centre Leroy Cudjoe, whose partnership with McGillvary on Huddersfield’s left flank looked really dangerous against the Tigers.

“I think Leroy’s had a very good last month,” he added.

“He’s getting the ball in a little more space. You’ve seen our right edge getting together a little bit more with their combinations and we’re getting the ball in hands a little bit earlier which is making them run a bit more.”
