Lawrence pleased to see Brough back in training

Huddersfield loose forward Michael Lawrence is pleased that Danny Brough looks like being fit for the next stage of the Giants’ play-off campaign.

Huddersfield lost 57-4 at Wigan Warriors in their first play-off outing last week, and now have to beat Catalan Dragons on Friday to progress to the next phase.

But with Scotland star Brough set to return, Lawrence is feeling more optimistic than he was when the final whistle went against Wigan.

“It’s good to have Danny Brough back in training,” he said.

“When Broughy doesn’t play it takes a lot away from our attack. He has a big influence on the game.”

Lawrence also knows that there will have to be a big improvement in the Giants’ middle unit, though, if they are to beat the French outfit on Friday.

“They can get on top of you in the middle and that’s where we lost it against Wigan,” he explained.

“Their pack performed really well against Leeds and when that happens that usually makes your half-backs lives a lot easier giving them freedom to play.

“Defence is a big part of my game and something that I pride myself on. My standards are very high. I look up to players across the world who have a solid, aggressive style. Players like Sonny Bill Williams are great to watch.”
