Leroy Cudjoe has got his England frustration out of his system by getting straight back into a punishing Giants pre-season schedule.

That’s the view of Huddersfield head coach Paul Anderson since the strike centre returned to work 10 days ago ahead of the start of the 2016 Super League campaign in February.

While teammate Jermaine McGillvary returned to pre-season training last Monday after starring in England’s decisive third-Teat triumph over New Zealand to claim the Baskerville Shield – Cudjoe spent the series on the sidelines.

But Anderson always knew that wouldn’t have a negative impact on his work back at his hometown club.

“Leroy was obviously disappointed not to have played. Who wouldn’t be?” said Anderson.

“But he’s not the type to sulk and dwell on it. He’s just come straight back in to the club and got down to business, ready to use that England frustration for the benefit of the Giants.

“Even though he didn’t get to play in last month’s Test series, the feedback we got from the England camp was that he – and Jerry as well – conducted himself in a totally professional manner and was a credit to himself and the club.

“Despite not getting a game, he knuckled down every day and was always looking to do everything he could to keep on improving. That’s exactly what he’s doing now he’s back with us at Huddersfield.”
