Paul Anderson believes the Huddersfield Giants under-achieved in 2014 – and he won’t accept anyone thinking otherwise.
Although Huddersfield finished third at the end of the regular season and just one point behind minor champions St Helens, the way they crashed out of the play-offs has hit Anderson hard.
They were thrashed 57-4 in their opening play-off clash at Wigan and were then narrowly beaten 18-16 at home to Catalan Dragons on Friday night.
And Anderson has made it clear exactly what he felt about it all.
“I won’t allow anyone to try and paint any positives after the way we finished the season,” said Anderson.
“I’ve said throughout the year that our aim was to win this competition, and when we won in the manner we did at Wigan on the opening night it proved we had the ability to do it.
“So to go on and finish the season the way we did couldn’t have been any tougher to take.
“For the investment that’s been put into this club and this team, it’s just not good enough.
“The simple truth is we need to be better, and no-one should hide behind that fact.”
