Ian Watson highlights “interesting call” that cost Huddersfield

Huddersfield Giants

Ian Watson was “proud” after his side pushed Champions St Helens all the way last night.

After the game, the Huddersfield Giants boss said:

“My overriding emotion first is really proud of the way we played and how we stuck at it. We spoke about it last week after the Wigan game that there’s such small margins between the top teams, it comes down to little moments in the game.”

However, despite this pride Watson picked out a key decision that went on to cost them.

It was seemingly a small moment, but one that in Watson’s mind changed the direction of the game.

He said:

“We were on the front foot and I thought the momentum was with us. There was an interesting call should we say, where there was four of their players offside and Nathan Peats runs into them on tackle four yet he doesn’t call a six again but tackle five and we have to kick on the back end of it.

“That set, they come out and have a tackle where Chris McQueen has his arm caught in the tackle. He gives a six again and then they score.

“Just a small little momentum change like that in a game like this massive, look at the score now.

“We don’t concede them six points, and then we compounded it by making an error and kicking out on the full which makes them come and score, I think it was last tackle in the corner with Makinson.”
