Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson was proud of his side after they completed their first double over St Helens since 1951.

The 25-16 win at the John Smith's Stadium kept the Giants on the heels of Super League leaders Wigan.

Anderson was still a little critical of the way his side conceded a couple of late tries but generally happy with the way they played.

"It's a first in Super League and a first in sixty some years so obviously it's something we're pretty proud of," Anderson said.

"I thought we got into an arm wrestle with Saints, they cracked and we scored try, try, try. It was as easy as that.

"Once we went 18-0 we went a bit soft if I'm being honest. We weren't as clinical or ruthless as we should have been.

"Danny Brough was good today. He always is. He has a lot of influence over the things we do and he's maturing as a player and as a captain."

Finding form

Nathan Brown took a few positives from the St Helens performance in the closing stages and hopes their return to winning ways is not too far off with James Roby back in action.

"At 18-6, I thought we still had a good chance but Broughy kicked the field goal for a reason," Brown said. "He's a clever player.

"I thought we were starting to find our best form for a long time. In particular the second half was the best we've played for a long time.

"We were playing one of the form sides of the comp but I thought in the second half we looked much better than we've looked at any stage for many, many months."

Brown was also relieved that Ade Gardner appeared not to suffer any serious injury after being knocked out in a tackle by Huddersfield prop Anthony Mullally, who was put on report by referee Richard Silverwood.

"I'll leave it to the powers that be to decide if anything should happen," Brown said. "I'd rather talk about the game."
