Anderson wants to keep coaching

Former Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson says he is confident in his ability and wants to keep coaching.

Anderson was axed from the Giants last month after three years at the helm.

The 44-year old is currently on holiday in Australia with his family. He said he has no firm plans for when he returns to the UK.

“I’m not sure yet,” he told the RFL website.

“It’s the first time I’ve not been involved and been in a job in rugby league since I was 17 years old. It’s good to get away and just reset.

“I’m sure when I get home there’ll be a point where I’m going to get back involved with stuff. I still want to keep coaching but it’s about opportunities, isn’t it?

“The thing for me is I’m very, very confident of what we’ve achieved at Huddersfield over the last three or four years.

“We took silverware to the club for the first time in 80 years or whatever it was, top three finishes for four years on the trot so I’m really confident in my abilities, me as a coach.

“I want to keep coaching.”

Anderson said it did “not work out” at Huddersfield this season.

“It’s results driven, isn’t it?” he said.

“It was a bit different to that, without going into detail but … the results weren’t good enough.

“The excuses are that we never got our team on the field, there were a lot of off-field issues before the year, having to let people go and sell them and what-have-you, injuries and stuff like that.

“It’s just not worked out this year. It is what it is.”

Anderson wished new Huddersfield coach Rick Stone well in his role.

“Things happen,” he said.

“Good to the bloke. He’s got a challenge there and good luck to him.”
