Former Huddersfield and England forward Eorl Crabtree is this week’s guest on the Love Rugby League podcast.

Joining host George Riley, Crabtree dissects Huddersfield’s heartbreaking defeat to Wigan in the Challenge Cup final on Saturday.

Only a Liam Marshall try in the 76th minute prevented the Giants from listing the prestigious cup for the first time in 69 years. With a 16-14 scoreline, Matt Peet lifted his first major trophy in his debut year in charge of the Warriors at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Crabtree, a one-club man, also looks at the future for Ian Watson’s side in this week’s Love Rugby League Podcast.

OPINION: Challenge Cup to stay at Tottenham or time to relocate up north?
