PAUL ANDERSON doesn’t believe indiscipline will be a major problem for the Giants in Super League XVIII.
His Huddersfield side incurred the wrath of referee James Child (left) during Friday’s 26-0 trial defeat at St Helens as he hammered the Giants around the ruck.
The Dewsbury official punished the visitors 15 times, with five penalties conceded for incorrect play-the-balls.
But Anderson knows it’s something that can be easily fixed up, and he doesn’t expect a repeat further down the line.
“We had been tipped up that referees would be looking at offences like this,” revealed Anderson.
“And if we’re guilty, we’re guilty, but it’s certainly not an issue that worries us. It definitely doesn’t mean we lack discipline.
“Playing the ball correctly is something that’s very easy to fix up, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing.
“But last Friday night did at least teach everyone a lesson as to what happens if you do commit such offences.
“It meant the possession was at 80-20 in Saints’ favour, which obviously means you’re going to have to do a lot of defending on your own tryline.
“In that respect alone, the other night was a very useful exercise for us.”
