Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson was pleased with the way his side bounced back from last week's surprise defeat to Hull KR and overcame Leeds 40-18.

The Giants were once again indebted to hooker Shaun Lunt, who took his tally for the season to 18 with another two tries at the John Smith's Stadium - sending the hosts cruising past the Rhinos in the process.

"I'm happy with that," Anderson said. "We came up against a team with a lot of people missing but they've been playing, whereas we've had some time off and everybody is a bit rusty.

"So there are some cohesion things we need to fix up and that's why I'm looking forward to playing Catalan on Friday because I know we can be better."

On an excellent display from stand-off Danny Brough, Anderson added: "We had some talks in the break we had and that was one of the things we encouraged him to do. He must have had his best running game of the year so far."

Bright spot

One bright spot for Leeds was the form of 18-year-old stand-off Liam Sutcliffe, who notched two tries of his own.

"He's not looking out of place at this level but in the whole scheme of things we finished up a losing team," said Rhinos coach Brian McDermott.

"The young fellas are getting experience but you don't want it to be at the expense of results. You want to be able to give them game time and feed them into the team.

"I thought the game might have come down to fatigue but it came to concentration lapses near our tryline. I thought they were defendable tries that we conceded."
