Huddersfield will learn lessons from loss to Leeds, says Simon Woolford


Huddersfield coach Simon Woolford says his side will learn some valuable lessons from their defeat to Leeds.

The Giants were 26-6 up against the Rhinos after an hour at Headingley on Sunday but the Rhinos fought back to seal a 27-26 victory.

Woolford said: “This game goes for 80 minutes and, when they got one on us, for some reason we lost our way, both with the footy and without it.

“There’s going to be some very hard lessons to come out of that one.

“We spoke about our discipline before the game but we let them out of their own end really easily in that last 15 minutes, our discipline went out the window.

“We went away from the things that worked well for us defensively in the first 65 minutes. We had ample opportunities to regroup and reset but for that last 15 minutes we weren’t good enough to do that.

“You could see them grow a leg in the last five or 10 minutes and you could see us completely lose our way.”
