Embarrassed Paul Anderson has pledged to do what he can to give the Giants’ faithful a performance to be proud of in next week’s sudden death play-off.
The Huddersfield head coach labelled last night’s 57-4 qualifying semi-final defeat ‘embarrassing’.
Anderson knows a colossal improvement is required to turn things around for their second bite of the cherry at home to opponents who will be revealed after the outcome of tomorrow’s two elimination play-off clashes.
And he believes that’s the least the fans deserved after the Giants’ DW Stadium horror show.
“It was embarrassing, wasn’t it?” admitted Anderson.
“In fact, I’m embarrassed for a lot of reasons, and I’m certainly embarrassed for the fans who came over in good numbers to see their side serve up something like that.
“I thought they were absolutely magnificent, and the way they kept themselves occupied by singing all those songs when there was nothing to keep them entertained on the field was a credit to them.
“I honestly believe we owe them one for that.
“And I intend to do everything within my power to make sure that’s exactly what we: do.
“We’ll sit down today and review exactly what we did wrong and what we need to do to put things right.
“Even though we lost this game, and lost badly, we’re still just two games away from reaching Old Trafford and the Grand Final.
“At this stage, We still see our glass as half full rather than half empty.”
