Ian Watson makes interesting salary cap assessment

Huddersfield Giants have come up short in a number of big games.

They lost 14-12 to both of last year’s top two Wigan Warriors and St Helens.

They then lost 18-17 to Leeds Rhinos on Easter Sunday.

However, Huddersfield boss Ian Watson explained he is not concerned:

“We’ve just got to be a bit better and a bit smarter in our processes. What happened was they started to get a leg up and started to get the ruck speed a little bit quick, what we did was start to defend individually rather than as a team which we’d done in the first half.

“I’m not too disheartened by it at all, I knew this year would be a little bit of a slow burner to start. What we can’t be doing is saying that it’s a slow burner in five or six weeks and we’ve got to start picking up some wins as well.”

Meanwhile, he said he believes that these tight games in Super League show that the salary cap could finally be having the desired effect on Super League.

He said:

“The competition is a real good competition I think. I think this is the strongest the competition has been with how tight the games are. It seems like the salary cap has kind of finally had an effect, that everyone wanted it to affect, in making it a tight competition.”
