Brown: Tough tests ahead
Giants coach braced for business end of Challenge Cup
Huddersfield coach Nathan Brown believes that there will be no more easy ties after his side reached the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup.
The Giants coasted to a 52-0 win over Swinton at the Galpharm Stadium, running in a total of nine tries in the process.
With Leigh now the only non-Super League side left in the competition, Brown expects things to get tougher in the latter stages of the tournament.
"Batley have nearly caused an upset (against London Broncos), Featherstone caused one and nearly caused another one, which is one of the great things about the cup, it's what happens on the day," he said.
"I'm sure everyone will be talking about Leigh now because they're the only Championship side left.
"Whoever they get will be wary because the Super League is so different to the Challenge Cup where anything can happen.
"The key to the Challenge Cup is just staying alive. If you could control the draw there might be one or two sides everyone might favour getting but you've got to play well."
Swinton coach Steve McCormack was proud of his side's display but was left to rue a disallowed try from Ian Mort which meant their efforts were not rewarded with any points.
He said: "I thought we had a right dig at them, especially in the second half and I'm disappointed we didn't score. I think it was a try, the touch judge gave it, but I don't think we'd have won anyway!
"I'm proud of the players and hopefully we'll learn from what Huddersfield have done to us and build on this for the remainder of the season."
