Ian Watson has interesting say on shock Lee Radford exit

Huddersfield Giants are taking on Castleford Tigers this week after the Tigers parted company with coach Lee Radford after only three games and three defeats.

Huddersfield coach Ian Watson himself has now reacted to this news ahead of their game against the Tigers.

He said it was a strange one unless the rumours he has heard are true:

“It’s a strange one. There are a lot of rumours flying around. From what people are saying, and what I’ve heard it was very mutual and it is very much a case of going in different directions.

“Like I say there have been a lot of rumours flying around so if they are true I can understand why Radders has done what he has.”

He also said that he believes the Tigers have been performing well if not getting the results.

He said:

“I was surprised because the way they are playing I think they’ve been competitive certainly against St Helens and even against Wigan Warriors, you look at the tries they conceded, they weren’t bad tries to concede like Liam Marshall intercepts.”

He also emphasised that they have a strong squad seemingly underlining the threat the Tigers will bring to the John Smiths Stadium on Friday night.

“They have lost Niall Evalds and you would think that would be a big loss but they have guys like Greg Eden who can drop in. They have a strong squad.”
