Simon Woolford: One of the best wins of my career

Huddersfield coach Simon Woolford said their win over St Helens was one of the best of his coaching career so far.

The Giants came up with a shock result as they stunned champions Saints 12-10 at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday night.

Woolford said: “I couldn’t be prouder. I’ve been around rugby league a long time as a player and a coach and wins don’t come much better than that.

“It takes a massive effort to do that. There were a lot of things that went against us but we found a way. There were a lot of things to like about us tonight.

“We learned some lessons last week but to come away with a win like that, under those circumstances, is worth more to me than two points. It was important that we proved last week (losing against Wigan) was an aberration – we let ourselves down.

“Tonight was a really good night for us. We were hit by adversity but we just kept turning up. We had to defend our bums off right to the end. We just kept finding a way to keep them out.”
