Paul Anderson: Huddersfield's London mission a success

Paul Anderson cut a happy figure despite his Huddersfield Giants being given a tough time by the London Broncos.

Anderson watched his side build an 18-0 lead but a Broncos rally meant the game was still up for grabs until Dale Ferguson crossed for a try to seal a 26-12 victory.

That leaves the Giants needing to beat Wakefield on September 1 to win the League Leaders' Shield and Anderson admitted the two points was all he was bothered about from the Twickenham Stoop encounter.

"Two points is two points isn't it? It doesn't matter how you earn them. It think what was credit to the group is that they stuck together."

"The main aim coming down here was to come and get two points and it's mission accomplished," said Anderson.

"I thought London caused us a hell of a lot of problems both offensively and defensively and they forced us to play. I thought patience, pure determination and hard work got us the win in the end. It was a scrappy game.

"I thought we just did enough personally. We have a break now, but we have to improve. Two points is two points isn't it? It doesn't matter how you earn them. It think what was credit to the group is that they stuck together."


Broncos coach Tony Rea was proud of his side's effort despite defeat being their eighth on the trot.

He added: "It was a really good effort there by them. We were playing against a very good side, they were just so hard to get through.

"They are a good strong side, they haven't fluked their way to the top, they are up there for a reason.

"You usually get there by defending well and they did that. We tried things but we just couldn't get there. But it didn't break us, we just tried to find the right to get into the game.

"We just had no bench left in the second half, we were down to empty. I was a bit disappointed with the last try, we could have kept that one out."
