Huddersfield coach Simon Woolford has revealed that he will go back to Australia if the club suffer relegation from Super League.

London, Hull KR, Huddersfield and Wakefield are all joint bottom of the Super League table on 20 points, with just one game of the season remaining.

The Giants face Catalans at the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday night as they aim to avoid the drop.

Woolford told BBC Radio Leeds: “If we go down we are all out of a job and if that happens, I’ll be going back to Australia.

“My focus is on staying in Super League and finishing the job I’ve come here to do. There’s a lot of things in place on the proviso we are safe.

“We’ve got 20-30 odd players whose livelihoods are on the line.

“We knew at the start of the year what the consequences would be if we went down to the Championship.”
