Huddersfield Giants Head Coach Paul Anderson and Assistant Coach Kieron Purtill have been stood down with immediate effect.

Head of Youth Andy Kelly will take immediate charge of all first team matters.

The Giants have picked up four wins out of 18 games in Super League this season.

It is with great sadness that we make this change involving two individuals who have previously taken the Club to its greatest achievements since the “Team of All Talents”. Unfortunately the simple fact is that the results this year have not been satisfactory and the Giants are not performing to the level that anyone associated with the Club expects. We are not a hiring and firing Club by nature and we have done everything possible behind the scenes to support the team and the staff in their quest for success.

Ken Davy, Huddersfield Giants Chairman
