Fans claim Hull FC are “miles off it” whilst Pryce grabs the headlines – How social media reacted to Huddersfield’s win over Hull

Last night, Huddersfield kick-started their season with a 40-26 win over Hull FC. The Giants went into the game on the back of some poor form and amidst a devastating injury crisis yet were able to produce the goods in front of their fans. That was my view anyway but how did social media see it?

Unsurprisingly, starlet Will Pryce again caught the eye with his dad watching in the Sky studio. Plenty are excited by the youngster’s promise but also found the dynamic between father and son quite amusing last night.

On top of his on-field brilliance, many viewers were impressed by his maturity applauding his post-match interview.

The consensus from Super League supporters is that if he could be just as good as his dad in the years to come.

Another of the headlines coming out of the game was Jermaine McGillvary’s four try haul. Yet in his post-match interview he was quick to side-step any praise claiming that his tries were down to the brilliance of his teammates. Plenty were impressed by his humility at the end of the game.

It was a remarkable performance from McGillvary who has had a remarkable career. A modern Giants legend for sure and the same could be said of Leroy Cudjoe. It was a landmark appearance for the outside back last night and he celebrated it with a try of his own.

At the other end of the age spectrum, Oliver Russell was key for the Giants on a night where all the focus settled on his halfback partner Pryce. He quite rightly received plenty of praise himself however with some believing Russell and Pryce could become the next great Super League halfback pairing.

On the other side of things, it’s safe to say Hull FC fans weren’t pleased with the showing. They felt like they should’ve produced a better display even without their key players against the side sitting second bottom.

Meanwhile, others felt their defence was simply unacceptable. They saw it as a problem that needs fixing as soon as possible.
