Ian Watson explains why Huddersfield lost to Leigh Leopards

Huddersfield Giants

Huddersfield Giants’ poor run of results continued on Friday night as they were well beaten by the Leigh Leopards 30-4.

The Giants are outside the play-off places and only have four wins to their name despite a star studded squad.

After their latest defeat, Watson blamed himself as he explained why the Giants lost to the Leopards.

He said:

“I’m at fault because I picked the team.”

He also reiterated that the absence of Theo Fages and Olly Russell is hurting the Giants and their attacking balance:

“We’ve not got our halves who can square defences up, when you lose players like Theo Fages and Olly Russell who control the team you’re going to be in trouble.”

He also said his side are the problem not external factors branding recent displays as “terrible.”

“We’re the problem but we need to be the solution. The last three weeks have been terrible from us. We’ve not been good enough.

” I’m at fault because I picked the team. I’m the one who makes the decisions and it’s only us who can fix it.”

He then provided an analysis of the performance and what went wrong:

“We had to build pressure on them, we had to be patient and we weren’t.

“At 12-0 you could see our ruck was starting to get really quick and we needed to start the second half well but we didn’t.

“Players were trying too hard and making silly errors. It epitomises where we are.

“We didn’t have any field position really and when we did we made an error.”
