Paul Anderson has praised the Giants travelling ‘Cowbell Army’ for their support at St Helens.
Despite the tough Friday night trip and torrential rain, the Huddersfield fans backed their side throughout the 30-16 Super League XXI opening-night loss at Langtree Park.
And Giants coach Anderson couldn’t thank them enough for their efforts.
“There weren’t many positives we could take from our trip over there,” he admitted.
“It was obviously disappointing to lose the game and to lose several key players in the process (Danny Brough and Scott Grix had to retire from the contest with a dead leg and dislocated shoulder respectively),
“But the Cowbell Army were fantastic on the night.
“They never stopped getting behind the boys, even when the game was going away from us, and that’s one thing that lifted some of the gloom. They deserve all the credit in the world for that level of support.”
