GIANTS head coach Nathan Brown said he was not thinking about walking away from the club after their Challenge Cup semi-final exit at the hands of Warrington Wolves.
The Giants’ 33-6 defeat at the City of Salford Stadium followed hard on the heals of a 52-6 setback at Castleford Tigers and ended dreams of going to the Wembley final.
Brown admitted that personnel and positional changes had been made for the semi-final at the players’ request.
"The players were desperate to change things," admitted Brown. "From a coaching point of view that is an issue when you have got a week and it is going into the semi-final of the Challenge Cup. The players wanted a more traditional approach to the attack. What we got out of it was a great deal of effort, but our attack was poor and poor attack puts your defence under pressure."
While Brown is leaving to coach St Helens at the end of the season, he said the failure to reach Wembley would not hasten his exit at the Giants.
"It was hard to try and make those changes in a week, but I have never thought that would be the end at Huddersfield," said Brown.
"I always said I would be here for the year and leaving early has never crossed my mind."
But the coach did admit that, while the Giants commitment was good, they were never able to match Warrington.
"We competed really well and that was pleasing to see," said Brown.
"I thought the players went out on to the field very positive, but in the end it came down to physicality.
"Warrington just ran the ball in so well and we had used up an awful lot of juice to stay with them at 18-6 down.
"I thought that had we got them back to 18-12 at the start of the second half we might have done something, but that didn’t happen."
