Toppled Giants wary of threat from Robins

Nathan Brown has warned Huddersfield Giants they face a tough trip to Craven Park tomorrow looking to regain top spot in Stobart Super League.

Brown’s side were leapfrogged at the summit last night after Warrington beat Wigan 22-20, but the Giants head coach expects a testing game against Craig Sandercock’s Robins team.

“Hull KR are a dangerous team and they are very different from how they used to play,” he said. “They used to play a very structured game under Morgs (Justin Morgan) which was very effective with the personnel they had.”

Under Sandercock, Hull KR now play a more expansive game but Rovers have had an indifferent start to the seasonwith just five points from their first seven games.

“The new coach has brought in a number of players who are very good naturally and they also have a couple of our old boys who have good feet and can offload a ball,” said Brown. “The full-back has a lot of pace and with Craig Hall playing at six it has certainly added some more creativity to their team.

“We will need to be on our toes for the whole game they are a different team to what they used to be.

“We generally have good games against Hull KR and I wouldn’t expect anything different this week.”
