DANNY BROUGH believes the way the Giants stuck at the task was the key to their impressive 40-18 triumph over St Helens in his side’s Super League XVI top-of-the-table clash.

The 28-year-old goal-kicking half-back was again in top form as Huddersfield kept hold of second place in the table at the midway stage of the season.

He crowned another fine individual performance with a magical length-of-the-field score just before half-time.

But he believes it was the way his teammates were prepared to dig in early on that laid the foundations for success.

“Saints made it tough for us, and we really had to dig deep,” said Brough.

“It was a real arm-wrestle early on. Fortunately, we won that and it gave us the chance to open up that 12-0 interval lead.

“And it obviously made it sweeter for me because I managed to score that second try.

“To be honest, when I set off from so deep I was hoping to look around and see someone in support.

“When that wasn’t the case, I knew I had to back myself to step around Paul Wellens and then find the speed to finish off.

“Luckily, everything went the way I could only have wished.”
