Harlequins 16-32 Huddersfield

Third-placed Huddersfield Giants secured their position in the engage Super League table for another week with a 32-16 win at Harlequins.

A frenetic final ten minutes saw the Quins cut the gap to just four points only to concede two tries from Brett Hodgson.

The defeat leaves the Londoners in sixth, equal on 20 points with Warrington Wolves who play St Helens this evening (Saturday).

The home side scored first through Luke Gale, Danny Orr converting, but the Giants equalised when Brett Hodgson and Michael Lawrence combined for Leroy Cudjoe to score, Hodgson adding the goal.

Huddersfield then took the lead on the stroke of half time, Chris Melling fumbling a kick to the corner and David Hodgson taking control of the loose ball to score, Brett tagging on the two points.

Quins looked threatening after the retstart, Danny Ward held up in goal, but the Giants’ lead was furthered when Cudjoe palmed Brett Hodgson’s kick into the hands of Lawrence, Hodgson converting.

Hodgson then added a penalty to make the score 20-6 in the Giants’ favour, but the Londoners hit back with a try from Melling that gave the home supporters hope.

The Quins showed a more adventurous approach in looking for a spectacular comeback, an approach that paid off when Orr touched down and converted to cut the deficit to a mere four points.

However, more adventurous play saw Brett Hodgson latch onto a loose ball to touch down before adding a second try to bring up the thirty-point mark, the full back converting both tries.
