Cunningham wary of wounded Giants

St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham is treating Huddersfield with caution ahead of his team’s clash with the Giants at Magic Weekend.

The Saints coach believes that Paul Anderson‘s team are in a false position in the table, and his team need to be careful.

“Huddersfield are playing well and are probably in a false position,” Cunningham told his club’s official website.

“They are similar to Leeds and if you take the Cas result (against Leeds) out of it you’d probably say both have been unlucky on a number of occasions.

“‘Baloo’ (Paul Anderson) is working hard there and the boys are starting to get some belief at what they are doing.

“They went to Catalan and nearly rolled them so they will be on a high and coming into the game full of confidence. But we aren’t doing so badly either.

“When we played in the rain at the beginning of the season we deserved to win the game. Our kicking game was very good that night. I have watched a lot of their games this season and I am shocked with where they are at.

“They’ve lost by a couple of points and not had the luck.

“All we can do is take care of ourselves though. The Hull game wasn’t good and we had a vast improvement for the Salford match. We will try and improve again in those areas we are deficient in.

“Magic does skew the table and can be a little unfair, but it is what it is. We have to showcase rugby league and push the boundaries. I enjoy the concept and playing there. Last year was a good game. We are looking forward to it.”
