The Giants won a lacklustre game 22-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium, but Anderson was delighted with the way his player handled the highly rated Carney.
“If that was a tennis match then he’s won that one sets to love,” Anderson told his club’s official website.
“He’s outplayed a very, very good player in Justin Carney. I thought collectively we definitely worked hard for each other which is the key for anything.”
Anderson was also pleased with his team’s effort levels, despite the obvious lack of quality on show from both teams.
“Imagine how good we could be if we actually kept hold of the ball!” he aded.
“We gifted away 50 percent of our possession in the first half just by dropping it.
“Jamie Ellis made a few errors but I was really pleased with how he responded later on in the half.
“He kept his composure and it was a really good response from him and the rest of the team with all the defending we had to do.”
