Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson hailed his side's battling qualities after the Giants dug in to earn a 30-16 win at London.

The visitors lost both full-back Jake Connor and winger Jermaine McGillvary to injury in a bruising first half, which saw Huddersfield trailing 16-10, but hit 20 unanswered points en route to a fourth successive Super League win.

"If you look at the adversity we had to go through I'm pretty pleased," said Anderson. "We had players out of position and others playing longer than they normally would.

"I really take my hat off to the boys. We had to reset, calm down and make some changes at half-time and I cannot fault the effort.

"London really provided us with a challenge today, and to keep them scoreless in the second half was a great effort."

The reverse, the Broncos' twelfth on the bounce, ruined coach Joe Grima's debut match in charge of the Londoners, having stepped into the hot seat after Tony Rea's departure earlier in the week.

"I think we earned a little bit more respect today, but respect does not earn you two points," said Grima. "The players are in the dressing room disappointed to have lost the game.

"The start of the second half was the difference, as those two early tries, added to the conditions, was enough to get Huddersfield home.

"We are definitely making inroads though - today was a very good performance for 40 minutes and what we have to do is convert that into an 80-minute performance."
