DISAPPOINTED Giants coach Jon Sharp was today laying down the law in a bid to come up with a new winning solution ahead of Sunday's home Super League game against St Helens (3.00).
The Giants yesterday dipped well below the standard expected by the Huddersfield chief and suffered the consequences as they were destroyed 54-10 by Bradford Bulls at Odsal.
The defeat ended a run of three Super League victories on the trot for the seventh-placed Giants, with Sharp determined to see his side get back on the winning track as quickly as possible.
"We came to Bradford full of confidence and expectation, so the nature of the performance we ended up giving was obviously disappointing," said Sharp.
"For some reason, we were not quite at the races and fell below the standards we have set ourselves.
"We knew Bradford would be wanting to start well, and in that sense they didn't disappoint us.
"Overall, it was a bad day at the office for us, and the key now is to make sure we learn from what went wrong and put it right as quickly as possible."
The Giants weren't helped in the build-up to the contest, with winger Hefin O'Hare picking up a knee injury in training and Aussie ace Michael De Vere suffering from flu during the build-up.
And their cause was also hampered at the start of the game with the loss through a bang to the head of inspirational full-back Paul Reilly, although he did come back on later in the game.
"It's true there was a bit of illness in the camp and Michael wasn't able to train until the end of the week," said Sharp.
"But I don't intend using that as an excuse for the performance we gave yesterday.
"It certainly didn't help, but it wasn't the root cause. That's the area we'll concentrate on."
