Holbrook: Giants Difficult To Predict

Justin Holbrook has been giving his thoughts ahead of Friday’s game with Huddersfield and believes they will be difficult to predict.

The Giants have only taken a point from their last six games but that was against Leeds and was one they should have won.

“Huddersfield have been a little up and down recently but they have a new coach and were unlucky not to beat Leeds a couple of weeks back,” Holbrook said. “They are hard to predict and that makes the game a hard one.

“We have to prepare for them at their best. If we don’t play well then we will get beat. That’s the good thing about this group. They know that.”

Saints will be without a multitude of players for the clash including Zeb Taia, Mark Percival and James Roby.

Holbrook though, says it is very much a team effort as they look to get back to winning ways.

“Zeb misses out with concussion and we’re hoping this will be the only game James Roby misses”, he added. “He is going well but we will have to see if he is ready for next week.

“He is a massive miss but the fact he didn’t play didn’t have a bearing on winning or losing on Sunday. I thought Matty (Smith) and Theo (Fages) did a great job at Wakefield but of course you don’t replace James Roby.

“I said that when Alex Walmsley got injured too as he is the best front row in the comp.

“But the minute you rely on one player in a team then you’re in trouble. What doesn’t help is the fact we didn’t win; that highlights the fact a player didn’t play.

“The players took the defeat at Wakefield hard and I expected that. When you watch it back we weren’t that bad apart from that 15 to 18 minute period. Outside of that they only scored a penalty goal.

“We didn’t deserve to win and are looking forward to bouncing back.”
