Leroy Cujoe is confident the Huddersfield Giants will put the bitter memory of their last home game behind them and inflict further misery on Bradford Bulls at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday.

Huddersfield’s impressive run of nine wins from 10 Super League fixtures was ended in demoralising fashion nine days ago with the 36-10 defeat at the hands of struggling Salford Red Devils.

The Giants then followed that up with a second loss – 44-30 – at in-form Castleford Tigers last Friday.

 

But England centre Cudjoe, who admitted he felt embarrassed by the Salford loss, believes the performance at The Jungle was a step in the right direction, and that the Giants will this weekend secure a win over the Bulls which could confirm Bradford’s relegation from Super League.

“After the way we played against Salford, our performance against Castleford was certainly a step in the right direction,” said Cudjoe.

“As a result, the mood among the boys is a lot more positive than it was at the same time last week.

“Having said that, we’re not exactly happy with what’s happened over the last couple of weeks. Those two defeats have seen us lose some valuable ground on the leading pack.

“And the performances need to start improving significantly.

“Despite our mood being a little better, the boys are probably still feeling more frustrated than anything. As soon as we stop making the errors and giving the ball away cheaply, we’ll be fine.

“And hopefully that’ll be the case against Bradford this weekend. Everyone’s looking forward to a big week of training and taking it into the game.”
