Stone happy with Turner’s debut

Huddersfield head coach Rick Stone praised Jordan Turner after the Giants’ new signing bagged a try on his debut on Sunday.

Turner’s effort was one of eight tries Huddersfield ran in as they romped to a 44-4 victory over Warrington to move up to ninth in the Super League table.

Stone said: “At 14-0 I said ‘look, if we keep working hard then things will open up for us and things might get a little easier’.

“We probably played too many errors in the second half and played a bit like the Harlem Globetrotters at times which frustrated me a bit, but it was good to see them enjoy going in front and going in for the kill a little bit.

“I know Warrington are down a little bit on troops and they are a bit banged up with the short turnaround, but I suppose through this year we have had plenty of that ourselves so it’s good to see us take advantage of an opportunity for a change.

“We probably just gave something back towards our home crowd. We haven’t been good to our home crowd this year, we have disappointed them several times. Hopefully they walked away with a smile on their face today.

“Looking at Jordan, he has a little bit of class. He can definitely draw a pass and get his winger into space if he gets that half-opportunity.

“He did that a couple of times for Murph (Aaron Murphy). I think Murph will have a good time sitting outside Jordan Turner in the future. He will be happy to get that eighty minutes out of the way.”
