Westwood tips Giants for Grand Final glory

Warrington back rower Ben Westwood would not be surprised if Huddersfield Giants went on to become champions of Super League this season.

Wire face the Giants at the John Smith’s Stadium Stadium on Sunday, and Westwood is expecting them to be highly motivated and ready to show their quality.

“They’re unbeaten in the Super 8s so far, and they’re on a great run at the minute,” he said.

“With the top four the way it’s panning out, any of those four teams could win it.

“Huddersfield winning it would not surprise me one little bit.

“They’ve got some great players. Danny Brough‘s kicking game is phenomenal at times.

“They’ve got everything they need to win it.

“They’ve got a big pack. They added Craig Huby this year. They’ve got some real big, tough players.

“They’ve worked hard this year, and whatever they’re doing, it seems to be working for them.

“We need to step up this week again, and prove to ourselves what we’re capable of.

“It would be great to get a win and put some smiles back on people’s faces.

“That’s wll we can aim for now, and to take some good form into preseason for next year.”

Warrngton’s own chances of glory are over for this season now, something which obviously disappoints Westwood.

The focus for the Wolves now is all about ending the campaign strongly, and hopefully building a little bit of spirit to take into preseason.

“Since the Wigan game, we’ve sat down and had a long chat – probably the longest chat we’ve ever had, to be honest,” he said.

“We buckled down and got some hard graft done and it showed at the weekend.

“We showed glimpses of what we’re capable of doing.

It’d be nice to take that into this week.

It’s been a pretty disappointing year, in terms of results and where we’ve finished.

“We’ve finished with no trophies, but there’s not a lot we can do now.

“It would be nice to finish the season off on a bit of high, with a bit of pride in our jerseys, and to send some of the boys who are leaving off with high hopes and smiles on their faces.”
