Giants still want top spot

Paul AndersonHuddersfield Giants coach Paul Anderson remains confident his side can still finish top of the Super League this season after an impressive win over Catalans Dragons (Giants 66/1 Regular Season outright).

Huddersfield ran in three tries as they beat seventh-placed Dragons 38-16 on Sunday to reinforce their position in the Super League’s top six.

The West Yorkshire side are now five points clear of Dragons and four behind league leaders St Helens (5/4 Regular Season outright) who beat Widnes Vikings on Friday.

The race for the League Leader’s Shield took another turn over the weekend as Wigan (9/4 Grand Final Winner) and Warrington (9/2 Grand Final Winner) suffered surprise defeats to Bradford and Wakefield respectively.

And while Saints are in a strong position with five matches left, Anderson is not giving up hope just yet.

“There is everything to play for,” he said. “We want to be in that top four, we still want to finish top if that’s possible.

“It was disappointing conceding 16 points but, in the first half, apart from one little misread on our tryline, I thought we were pretty good defensively. Catalans are a good team but our effort and endeavour was good.”

Huddersfield (14/1 Grand Final Winner) finished top of the Super League in 2013 but were beaten by Warrington in the semi-finals.

The John Smith’s Stadium club finish the regular season with matches against Wakefield, Widnes, Warrington, Hull FC and St Helens.
