Paul Anderson has challenged his Huddersfield Giants to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself this weekend.
Huddersfield were bullied into Super League submission earlier in the season when they were beaten 30-14 by Catalan Dragons in the South of France.
That March 22 defeat hit Anderson hard.
And the Giants chief is desperate to make sure it’s a completely different story when the Dragons arrive at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday.
“What happened over there can act as a source of inspiration for us this weekend,” said Anderson.
“We got bullied by them at their place. I didn’t enjoy it and neither did the players, and no-one wants to see anything like that happen again.
“We have to step up and make sure we do to the Dragons on Sunday what they did to us earlier in the season.
“It’s going to be a challenge, because they’re a good, physical team, while we’ve not been playing well at all.
“We need to rise to that challenge and do everything we possibly can to start getting back to our best form and make sure we build positively on last week’s win over Bradford.”
