Paul Anderson is hoping his side’s record Super League win over Bradford Bulls will help take the Giants to the next 2014 level.
Huddersfield ended a run of three top-flight fixtures without a win – two draws against Leeds and Hull KR and a defeat at Widnes – with a 66-18 12-try thrashing of beleaguered Bradford at Odsal.
The Giants ran in six tries in each half, with Scott Grix, Joe Wardle, Jermaine McGillvary and Ukuma Ta’ai all scoring two, while captain Danny Brough kicked nine goals from 12 attempts in a totally one-sided contest.
And having arrested the slide, head coach Anderson is know expecting his 2013 table-toppers to push on.
“After last week’s draw at home to Leeds, we were looking to make progress against Bradford,” said Anderson.
“In terms of the result that’s exactly what we did, because we’ve won this week, and that’s something we haven’t done since the opening day.
“It was a good feeling to sing the victory song once again, and we obviously want that to now become a habit.
“I wouldn’t say it was a great performance, because there were a lot of areas that still need to be improved. At times it was very slow and there was no ruck speed.
“We were scrappy but we got through the game and obviously the scoreboard showed that.
“I thought we did turn up at times, but we need to be doing that more.
“We need to keep building and make sure we’re better next week when we go to Catalan. It’s vitally important we do.”
