Anderson happy as Huddersfield backs get creative

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson is delighted with the way that his backline is playing at this stage of the season, with more payers taking the creative burden from Danny Brough.

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.

“The biggest thing during this time is the improvement we’ve seen from Jermaine McGillvary, Leroy Cudjoe, Jamie Ellis and Jack Hughes.

“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.”
