Super League: Huddersfield Giants insist there are no concerns over Danny Brough

Danny Brough: Was not risked in the second half with the Giants 30-6 ahead

Everyone is going on about Giants teams from years gone by but we want to create our own story and build day by day.

Huddersfield assistant coach Kieron Purtill was happy to "get the job done" after they clinched a 36-22 triumph over Widnes.

The Giants made sure they didn't suffer any hangover from their Tetley's Challenge Cup success over Leeds last time out with a professional display on their travels.

They led 30-6 at half time and although the Vikings hit back, Purtill was pleased with how his side performed in what he felt was a scrappy match.

"I'm happy with the win as to back up from last week against Leeds was pleasing," he said.

"Everyone is going on about Giants teams from years gone by but we want to create our own story and build day by day.

"We are really happy with what we have done. It was scrappy at times but we got the job done.

"We spoke at half-time about the penalties and we changed a few people round thinking about the games we have got ahead.

"We showed resolve in defence and did some decent stuff with the ball in hand."

Precautionary move

Purtill also confirmed that Danny Brough's non-appearance in the second half was a precautionary move after the influential half-back had contributed 14 points before the break.

"Broughy is fine. He is a key player for us and we have to look after them," Paul Anderson's right-hand man insisted. "We did the job in the first half and took the decision to bring him off. You can get a few tight calves on this pitch so we just brought him off."

Widnes boss Denis Betts conceded his side had been blown away in the first 40 minutes, leaving them with too much ground to make up.

"We started okay but they stepped up the pace and started winning the ruck and to be honest they dominated the first half," the former Great Britain international said.

"We got caught in the head lights and they physically dominated us.

"We had a chat at half-time and we had more venom in us after that. I was pleased with the response the lads gave in the second half.

"There are some disappointed players in the dressing room as they feel they have let it slip."
