In a recent interview with BBC Radio Leeds, Huddersfield Giants coach Simon Woolford admitted players livelihoods and his own future at the club are at stake if they get relegated.

Woolford’s men have endured a tough season so far and head to table topping St Helens on Friday just two points ahead of bottom side London on the ladders with two games remaining.

Despite earning an impressive and important win over Hull last week, the Australian highlighted the importance of avoiding the drop and confirmed he wouldn’t have a position in Huddersfield if they were to be relegated.

“If we go down we are all out of a job and if that happens I’ll be going back to Australia,” he said.

“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.

“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.”
