UPBEAT Giants coach Paul Anderson is in no rush to strengthen his squad – and pointed to the 38-6 pre-season destruction of Hull KR as a reason why.
Huddersfield were in a different class to their Super League rivals as they stormed to a highly-impressive seven-try triumph on the east coast.
The Giants dominated early on when they fielded their ‘bigger guns’, but remained in complete control when the fringe players were introduced.
And that was one of the many positives Anderson took from his side’s first run-out of the year.
“We’re in a pretty healthy place as a club right now,” said Anderson, who has cash available following the departure of England back-row forward Brett Ferres to Leeds Rhinos.
“It’s no great secret that we’re scouring the world for potential new recruits to strengthen the squad – to be honest, that’s something that does go on all the time – but this game has shown us that we’re not looking too bad at all.
“We looked strong early on and we didn’t lose much when the younger blokes were given their chance.
“In fact, Joe Wardle said to me straight after the game that these younger players are ready to play for us at Super League level, and I think we saw that in this game.
“We were up against a very good and big Hull KR side, but everyone in our squad contributed to making sure we dominated.”
Anderson, meanwhile, confirmed hooker Luke Robinson wasn’t risked after picking up a slight knock in training, but could be available for next Saturday’s second and final trial clash at home to Catalans Dragons.
