The Giants are finding some fluency and form at the right time of the season, and recorded an impressive win over Castleford last week.
“Broughy’s a great player, our captain and our talisman and a lot does go through him,” Anderson told the Huddersfield Examiner.
“But over the last month or so we haven’t been as reliant on him.
“They’ve been consistent all year, but they’re now starting to perform really strongly.”
Brough’s half-back partner Jamie Ellis has become a particularly important cog in the Giants’ machine, according to Anderson.
“He is improving all the time,” the coach added.
“He has his little battles he needs to overcome every week, but we’re definitely glad to have him.
“There’s no doubt he’s been a good recruit for us.”
