Ian Watson explains Huddersfield thrashing

Hull FC head coach Tony Smith with Huddersfield Giants head coach Ian Watson

Last night, Ian Watson’s Huddersfield Giants were stunned by Leeds Rhinos suffering a 54-0 defeat at the hands of the Rhinos.

After the game, Ian Watson was brutally honest about his side’s performance as he explained what went wrong for the Giants.

He said: “Yeah it’s a very difficult one but it is an easy one. Terrible beginning, terrible middle and terrible end from us. Yeah, just no nowhere near, no resilience. No building pressure. Too much defending in the first half.

“Just not good enough. Embarrassing to be fair.  I didn’t see it coming mate. I’ll be honest We’ve trained really well the last two weeks and trained hard as well. They labelled it the mini-Grand Final, all the players knew all about that. The occasion was obviously a big occasion for the MND and it was a great occasion for Rob and his family. But we let it all down by a terrible performance, mate, to be fair.”

Nonetheless, he backed himself to turn things around:

“I’ve been here before, I know how to change it, I know what will work and where we need to go from it. It’s a shame it will come to that, but I know where it needs to go and what we want to do.

“I just think it’s not going to be nice now. It’s not going to be nice. It’s going to be tough. It’s going to be some tough conversations, some honest conversations, but if we need to take the club forward and move it in the right direction, that’s what’s got to happen now.”
