Danny brough should be in shape to lead the Huddersfield Giants into Super League battle at home to Catalan Dragons on Sunday.

That’s the view of head coach Paul Anderson as he looks to plot the downfall of the French and build on the 52-26 weekend win over Bradford Bulls.

Although playmaker Brough returned to action in that match after missing the Castleford defeat the week before with the ankle injury he picked up against Salford, he didn’t complete the full game and handed the goalkicking duties to Leroy Cudjoe.

 

The 31-year-old limped off in the final five minutes.

But Anderson doesn’t expect this to be a problem as his side prepare to welcome the Dragons and look to secure a 13th win.

“Broughy should be fine,” reported Anderson. “He picked up a knock on his damaged ankle, which made it a bit sore.

“To be honest, we didn’t want to wait until the 75th minute to get him off, we wanted to do it earlier when we’d gone 20 points up.

“Circumstances prevented us from doing that, but we still got him off in time as a precaution.”

And Anderson is hoping he’ll be able to get some of his injured senior players back on the field sooner rather than later, with David Faiumu (shoulder and groin), Scott Grix (groin), Shaun Lunt (calf) and Aaron Murphy (broken hand) all making positive progress.

“All being well, we’ll be getting some more bodies back,” he said.
