GREG BROWN has been hailed for his work as the Giants’ new head conditioner.
The club’s former rehabilitation chief took over as the man to knock Huddersfield into shape for the forthcoming Super League campaign following the departure of Paul Watson to London Broncos.
Brown’s work is at the heart of the current pre-season programme, with more game-related emphasis taking place after Christmas as the Giants gear up for their big 2012 opener at Wigan Warriors on Sunday, February 5.
And by that stage, head coach Nathan Brown is confident the Galpharm fitness guru’s punishing regime will have paid off.
“Greg’s done very well,” said Brown.
“From day one, he seemed to be on top of things, and everything appears to be going very well on the conditioning front.
“Taking over from Paul Watson was always going to be a hard act to follow.
“But Greg has had little trouble stepping in and the players are responding to what he’s doing.
“The signs are looking good, but the acid test is always how everyone goes when the season gets going.”
