Jake Connor’s training at Huddersfield has been “different to anything” he has had before

Jake Connor is in the Huddersfield Giants squad for the game against St Helens this week after some very tough work to get himself ready.

Even then he isn’t ready for the full 80 minutes this comes after his recent session nearly broke him according to Ian Watson.

“He is not ready for the full 80 minutes. He isn’t far away though his last session before Wigan nearly broke him in terms of fitness to be honest.

“He has been working hard.”

This all comes down to Head Conditioner Greg Brown.

“The big thing is that Jake actually knows Greg really well as Greg was at Huddersfield when Jake was coming through,” Ian Watson said this week.

“So he only had him for a little while but I think that was enough for him to know what he was about.

“Quite funny as well but Greg Brown was actually Jake Connor’s first sponsor when he came through at Huddersfield, his gym sponsored Jake and still to this day he’s got Jake’s first shirt in his gym.

“He’s probably a little bit like a son of his to be fair so he’s pretty straight with Jake and Jake’s definitely said there’s been a difference to some of the fitness he’s done before.

“I think it’s one of them where when you know them so well then you’re even harder on them but Jake’s definitely felt it and hopefully till stand him in good stead.”

Watson would go on to say “Jake has told me that what he is doing is different from anything he has done before” underlining just how tough his recovery has been.
