Smith ruled out for season

Huddersfield prop Daniel Smith will not play again in 2016 as he recovers from a foot injury.

Smith injured his foot against Leeds and has undergone surgery.

But Giants coach Paul Anderson expects to have prop Craig Huby back from injury at Easter. Hudderfield notched its first victory of 2016, a 38-6 win over Hull KR.

“Winning is definitely better than losing,” Anderson said.

“It does relieve some pressure, the boys are happy in there. There was no real sense of panic but we can’t rest on that. We have an opportunity to start knocking some points off.

“For 40 to 50 minutes you could tell both teams were a little bit nervous but we settled the quicker and created a lot of opportunities. We stayed patient and came up with some good sets.”

“We just need to get people back on the field and training continuously. We’ve not lost anybody else today which is a positive.

“All the people who came back grew into the game and Jordan Tansey had an impact and is only got to get better as gets to know our structures.”
