Woolford admits jobs are on the line

5th September 2019, 14:37 by Bobbie Jackson

Simon Woolford says Huddersfield Giants are fighting for their livelihoods as they remain in serious danger of relegation.

With two games left to play of the regular Super League season, Huddersfield sit 10th and just two points clear of rock-bottom London Broncos.

They return to action on Friday at table-toppers St Helens, having beaten Hull FC 22-12 last time out, before finishing the season at home to Catalans Giants.

Woolford, who took charge of the club in 2018, admits he will be out of a job and heading back to Australia if they do suffer relegation while acknowledging it will likely see some of the playing staff let go.

"If we go down we are all out of a job and if that happens I'll be going back to Australia," Woolford told BBC Radio Leeds.

"My focus is on staying in Super League and finishing the job I've come here to do. There's a lot of things in place on the proviso we are safe."

He added: "We've got 20-30 odd players whose livelihoods are on the line. We knew at the start of the year what the consequences would be if we went down to the Championship.

"It's not a nice predicament to be in but we just have to make sure we get the job finished over the next two weeks."
