Kevin Brown has given his assessment of a number of Super League teams as the competition returns this week after a break for England’s clash with France last week.
“I’ve been surprised by Huddersfield and how poor they’ve been,” the former Huddersfield star revealed.
The Huddersfield Giants currently sit on just four wins after losing a number of close games.
Brown further elaborated on the Giants, saying: “They wanted silverware, never mind the top six and they’re languishing at ninth so that’s been a big surprise for me.”
He then spoke about another former club, the Warrington Wolves: “Warrington have been great even though they’ve lost the last two, winning eight out of ten.”
Continuing the theme of teams that have surprised him, he said that Champions St Helens have surprised him with their inconsistencies but says they are still the team to beat:
“I’ve been surprised with Saints. When they won that World Club Challenge and how good they’ve been, only winning a handful of games is unlike Saints but for me I still think they’re the team to beat. I still think they’re the favourites when it comes to they can perform.”
The Saints head over to France tomorrow to take on Catalans Dragons in a game live on Sky Sports.
