Leon Pryce explains why Jake Connor is struggling at Huddersfield

Huddersfield Giants are doing it tough at the moment.

The West Yorkshire side are on a losing streak at present despite being one of the teams expected to challenge for silverware in 2023.

In fact many said they had the strongest squad in Super League especially with the addition of players like Jake Connor.

The former Hull FC star was a major signing for the Giants but aside from some glimpses hasn’t shone yet for Ian Watson’s team.

Speaking ahead of the Giants’ clash with Salford Red Devils in the Challenge Cup, a player very similar to Connor in the shape of Leon Pryce had his say on why things aren’t going as well as Connor might have hoped so far.

“Jake Connor is a fantastic player but I don’t think it’s been quite working for him at Huddersfield Giants just yet,” Pryce said on Viaplay.

“I think part of the reason is he’s come back from injury and the balance of the team hasn’t been quite right.

“He is a very skilful player and I am sure he will come good for the Giants at some point.”

Connor was key to Huddersfield’s two amazing comebacks that night though his one miss from seven attempts proved crucial in the end.
