Final score: Huddersfield Giants 12 Saints 26

Last updated:

    SAINTS maintain their unbeaten start to the 2018 Super League season.
  • They defeated Huddersfield Giants 26-12 on a bitterly cold night at the John Smiths Stadium.
  • Jon Wilkin opened the scoring for Saints when he drove over from close range, but Danny Brough cancelled that out in a scrappy first half.
  • Saints sneaked into the lead again just before the break when James Roby crossed from dummy half to make it 14-8 at the interval.
  • Saints kept chipping away in the second half without really hitting full throttle with tries from Zeb Taia and Mark Percival, both courtesy of Jonny Lomax, giving them a winning lead.
  • Oliver Roberts pegged one back for the hosts, but Saints were not letting this one slip away.
  • A large and vocal Saints contingent bolstered the 5,915 gate in Yorkshire.
