Brown wants cup success

Huddersfield captain Kevin Brown wants Challenge Cup success for both the club and outgoing coach Nathan Brown in 2012.

Nathan will leave the club at the end of the season and move to St Helens, who beat the Giants in the 2009 Challenge Cup Final.

Huddersfield’s first step to a possible final comes on Sunday, when they face a tough clash with Hull at the KC Stadium.

Stand-off Brown said: “It’s going to be tough for us. Hull FC are one of the teams who will be eyeing the cup as a real target this season and we know it won’t be easy to get past them.

“But we want to win and we want to go as far as we can in the competition. I played in the final in 2009 and it was a very hard experience to be part of a losing side when you’ve got that far, but we’re all hardened to the occasion now.

“A lot of the squad have been there and had that losing experience and we’re ready to go to the next step and hopefully this is the season when we do that.

“With Nathan (Brown) leaving at the end of the season as well it would be a great way for us to send him off and thank him for all the hard work he has done during his time here. But a major trophy would also be great for the club in general and a great boost for the supporters.”
