Cud­joe: We have to hit top form CON­SIS­TENCY IS THE KEY TO GIANTS SUC­CESS NEXT SEA­SON SAYS SKIP­PER

the squad can re­main healthy.

“The sea­son as a whole wasn’t too bad,” said the 29-year-old former Eng­land cen­tre.

“We had some big per­son­nel miss­ing from our team for most of the year in Bruno (Michael Lawrence), Tommy Sy­monds and Jake Mamo.

“We showed im­prove­ment from last year in get­ting into the top eight, and a lot of our younger play­ers have come on a lot.

“The Mid­dle part of the year, in par­tic­u­lar, was good be­cause we re­ally hit some form and showed what we can do. We just need to do it more of­ten.

“It was ob­vi­ously dis­ap­point­ing how we started and fin­ished the sea­son, and that’s some­thing we have to fix up.

“We want to be a team that’s con­sis­tent ev­ery day with train­ing and ev­ery week in games, and that’s some­thing we will keep work­ing to­wards.”

The skip­per’s com­ments were echoed by emerg­ing wing star Dar­nell McIn­tosh.

The 20-year-old, who won the Giants try of the year award for 2017, is ex­pect­ing the squad to con­tinue the im­prov­ing form that was shown in the sec­ond half of last sea­son.

“After the win over Cata­lans at the Magic Week­end I felt that we saw a mas­sive dif­fer­ence ,” said the former New­some Pan­thers ju­nior player.

“We seemed to be im­prov­ing ev­ery week and in the sec­ond half of the sea­son I thought that we were re­ally good.

“It means that we will go into next sea­son with a real buzz.”

Former Hud­der­s­field Giants coach Jon Sharp is re­port­edly in the run­ning to be­come the new head coach at London Bron­cos.

The Bron­cos have con­firmed the de­par­ture of head coach An­drew Hen­der­son, who has left by mu­tual con­sent with im­me­di­ate ef­fect to take on the role of as­sis­tant coach at War­ring­ton
