Could Jake Connor leave Huddersfield on loan? Here’s what Ian Watson said

Super League

Ian Watson has confirmed that star signing Jake Connor will play reserves this weekend.

This is to get him properly up to speed after he joined the club injured.

“Well he didn’t play obviously against Warrington, we had him in the squad against Warrington but like I say the squad was basically the squad, what we had there as well as obviously Jake being involved,” Watson explained.

“But this week we’ve decided that the best thing for Jake is to just get to build on what we’ve been doing in training really and getting them K’s and miles and getting extra strength and work into his leg and his knee.

“He’s been doing a lot of leg sessions, he’s been doing a fair little bit of running, some extra stuff he’s been doing himself in terms of rugby and running. So he’ll play in our reserves now tomorrow night just basically to tick some more boxes now to get him fit.”

Asked if Huddersfield could loan him out, with plenty of teams struggling, Watson said the Giants weren’t interested in this:

“No, no, no, it’s not a consideration at all. We know what we want Jake to do. If we send him out to another club, they might not be looking at them, saying the kind of things or have an idea of what they want or where they want to get him in terms of his physical conditioning.

“We want him to be able to do the things that we need him to be able to do for the best for the team at Huddersfield. So if we sent him somewhere else we can’t keep our eyes and we can’t develop him the way we want to develop him.”
