Huddersfield Giants stars Danny Brough and Jermaine McGillvary are in the 2015 Super League Dream Team.
The Huddersfield backs have been rewarded for outstanding seasons to get the nod to be picked for the imaginary team of the year, which was selected by a panel of 40 journalists.
Neither choice will have come as a big surprise, with 2013 Super League Man of Steel Brough having once again led the Giants by example in helping them secure a top-three finish and McGillvary top of the tryscoring charts with 27 - 13 of which have come in the Super 8s.
The news is also a boost for the Giants ahead of Thursday’s play-off semi-final trip to Wigan with a place in the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford the following Saturday at stake.
Hosts Wigan, however, also have two players in the Dream Team in back-row forward Liam Farrell and winger Joe Burgess.
But Huddersfield head coach Paul Anderson says he would have loved to have had better representation.
“We’re all delighted for Jerry and Broughy. Their selections were thoroughly deserved,” said Anderson, who reports a clean bill of health from the 17 who were part of Friday’s heartbreaking 20-16 home defeat to newly-crown League Leaders Shield winners Leeds Rhinos.
“Having said that, as a club we’d have liked to have seen a couple more in their, the likes of Jack Hughes, Leroy Cudjoe and Joe Wardle to name three.
“But at the end of the day, the most important thing isn’t who’s included or isn’t included in the Dream Team, it’s winning games, and that’s what we intend to do on Thursday night.
“Broughy and Jerry were obviously delighted to have been selected, but I know how much more of a boost it will give them, and the rest of the boys, to get to an Old Trafford Super League Grand Final with a win at Wigan on Thursday night,”
