DISAPPOINTED prop Paul Jackson is confident the Giants will respond positively to Saturday’s 34-6 home defeat to Super League champions Leeds Rhinos.
Huddersfield went into the contest on the back of a six-game winning run, while Leeds had lost their previous three.
But the Rhinos proved far too strong in all areas as they bounced back in spectacular style, with Jackson hoping lessons can be learned from this weekend’s big setback.
“As a group, we’re obviously very disappointed,” said the 31-year-old.
“But maybe this win will end up doing us some good.
“Defeats make you reassess what you’ve been doing, and this defeat to Leeds has shown us there are still areas we need to improve if we want to maintain our place near the top of the table.
“We’ve now got the chance to see exactly where we need to keep on working, and I’m sure Nathan (Brown) will have picked up on that straight away.
“I know he’ll make sure we start putting it right as quickly as possible.
“It’s just a case of fixing things up, getting straight back on the horse and making sure we learn the lessons in time to face Warrington next Sunday.”Related content
Although Jackson was disappointed with the outcome of the Leeds’ contest, it has failed to dampen his enthusiasm for the way the season as a whole has been going.
And he can’t wait to face the Wolves.
“Like everyone else in the squad, I’m feeling fresh and strong, and looking forward to the challenges that still lie ahead,” he added.
“I’m delighted with the way the prop rotation has worked this year, because it’s enabled us all to play for longer than in the past. Personally, I’m loving it, despite setbacks like this one against Leeds.”
