Single-minded Paul Anderson knows the Giants would swap all their 2013 individual honours to get hold of a Super League winners ring.

Huddersfield crowned a magnificent 2013 regular campaign with a 40-0 home win over Wakefield to lift the Super League Leaders Shield for the first time.

Many of the senior players then picked up individual honours at the club’s end-of-season presentation, with captain Danny Brough leading the way.

The inspirational Giants captain is now expected to be named in the Super League Dream Team on Monday, with teammates Eorl Crabtree, Leroy Cudjoe, Brett Ferres and Shaun Lunt also in the running.

And the goalkicking half-back is thought to be involved in a two-horse race with Leeds prop Jamie Peacock to win the coveted Super League Man of Steel.

Anderson is also the hot favourite to be named the Super League Coach of the Year.

But the Giants chief would gladly sacrifice that award for a Super League Grand Final victory at Old Trafford on Saturday, October 5, and he knows that’s a sentiment shared by all the players in his squad.

“We’ve enjoyed picking up the League Leaders Shield and we’ve enjoyed picking up the individual accolades associated with it,” said Anderson, who collected the club’s Outstanding Achievement Award for guiding Huddersfield to their first top-of-the-table finish in 81 years.

“I also know those who pick up individual awards over the next couple of weeks will also appreciate them.

“But I think I can speak of behalf of everyone when I say we’d willingly hand them all back for a Super League Grand Final ring.

 

“Getting our hands on that prize has been our main goal from day one. Nothing’s changed in that respect.”
