Danny Brough isn’t concerned the Huddersfield Giants appear to have one of the toughest starts to the Super League XXI season – because he expects every fixture in 2016 to be more competitive than ever.
Huddersfield follow up their top-flight opener at St Helens on Friday night, with home clashes against Wigan and Widnes and then a trip to Leeds.
That means the Giants face the three sides who finished above them at the end of last season in the opening four rounds – Leeds finished first, Wigan second and Saints third – but that doesn’t faze the current Super League Dream Team stand-off.
“I know it’s an old cliché, but there are no easy games in Super League,” said the Giants skipper.
“When you’ve got an opening four rounds of Saints, Wigan, Widnes and Leeds it does look pretty challenging.
“But that’s the way it goes. You’ve just got to get on with it and look forward to what’s ahead of you, which is exactly what we intend to do.
“We’ll let them worry about us, rather than us worry about them.”
