Huddersfield Giants boss Ian Watson on Will Pryce ahead of Wigan Warriors clash

When Will Pryce was handed a ten-match ban for a tackle on Hull FC’s Connor Wynne back in March, Huddersfield Giants head coach Ian Watson at the time said he would learn from his mistake.

Since then, according to Watson, Pryce has put his head down and continued to train to his utmost.

Of course, this week will mark the week of the teenager’s return from that hefty suspension – incredibly the week of the Challenge Cup Final.

Watson, however, believes that Pryce does not just walk back into the team.

“You never rule anything out, it’s about picking them on form,” Watson said before Huddersfield’s fixture with Toulouse Olympique.

“The guys that have been playing hold the shirts, so it’s all on them to maintain the shirts.”

Watson did, however, reveal just how motivated Pryce has been during what he labelled a ‘mini pre-season’.

“Prycey has been training the house down, he looks a hell of a lot stronger and the good thing is he has been able to work on things and work on his game.

“Physically, his conditioning, his weights and he looks physically stronger – he’s been working on his kicking game and attack stuff.

“We will get a better athlete and player.”
