Paul Anderson is urging his Huddersfield Giants to show more composure as they look to keep on building as a major Super League force.

Huddersfield’s 26-16 home weekend trial triumph over Catalans Dragons was a classic example of Anderson’s men taking control of a contest and then allowing their opponents a lifeline – by starting to take wrong options after opening up a lead.

And the John Smith’s Stadium boss knows it’s a characteristic that can’t continue.

“A big lesson we have to take out of the Catalans game is making sure we become more composed,” said Anderson, who is determined to see those lessons learned in time for their Super League XXI opener at St Helens on Friday week.

“We took a 10-0 lead in the first half and could have scored two or three more if we’d been more composed and our decision-making had been better.

“Instead, we didn’t make the most of our chances and by half-time it was just 10-6. That shouldn’t have happened.

“But it’s something we’ve been guilty of doing in the past, so we have to start doing something about it.

“If we start being more selective in what we do, then I know we can achieve even better results off the back of it.”

Round One of the new Super League season starts with the clash between Grand Final champions Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves at Headingley on Thursday, February 4. That’s the day before Huddersfield head to Langtree Park for their opener.
