Bradford Bulls v Huddersfield Giants match reaction
AARON MURPHY is hoping his rock-solid full-back display against Bradford Bulls will herald the start of a successful run in the Giants’ Super League side.
The 23-year-old utility back was one of Huddersfield’s top performers as they rattled up win No10 in the Odsal mud.
The former Wakefield Trinity Wildcats ace got his chance in place of the rested Greg Eden.
And after an injury-wrecked start to the season, when he missed the opening weeks of the campaign with a wrist injury and then chipped a bone in a leg during the win at Wakefield, Murphy is hoping the tough times are behind him.
“I’m pleased with the way it went yesterday, and I just hope it’s the start of a longer run in the side,” he said.
“I know I got my chance this week at full-back because Greg didn’t play, but Browny knows I can play in quite a few positions, which I hope will work to my advantage.
“At the end of the day, I just want to play, and it doesn’t matter where.
“And I’d like to think I did enough against the Bulls to make sure that happens.
“The conditions weren’t exactly the greatest in the world, but I came up with an error-free game, and I’d love to build on that.
“In fact, for the conditions, I thought we did well.
“We obviously couldn’t play our usual more expansive attacking style, but I thought we adapted well and thoroughly deserved the victory.”
