Ian Watson reveals bizarre way he found out about Justin Holbrook rumours

The pressure may now be on Ian Watson after Huddersfield Giants’ crushing defeat to Leeds Rhinos last night, but before that Sky Sports linked Justin Holbrook with Ian Watson’s position.

Speaking after the defeat to Leeds, Watson revealed how he found out about the reports from Sky.

“I don’t know [if it was unhelpful]. You’d have to ask the players, wouldn’t you? When I seen it or when I heard it, I didn’t actually hear it. I got a phone call saying, have you heard what’s been said on Sky and I said no.”

He then gave his verdict on Holbrook:

“My thing would be Justin’s a great coach I know he’s just been sacked himself but I’d rather think people look at some of the British coaches before they look at the Australian coach he was brought across here and given the best club in the country and the players at the at the pump we’ve not got the players at their pump at the moment we’re trying to build something that doesn’t happen just overnight so we had a great win record over here, but then over there he’s gone over there.

“And if you want to say like I’m failing now then he’s probably potentially failed in his job But he’s a great coach from all accounts from what I’ve been told from the people I speak to Speak highly of him. Does it mean he’s a bad coach because it’s not worked out? It just means that that’s that clubs probably not fitted him and then players haven’t fitted him.”
