Huddersfield 30-14 Wakefield

Huddersfield opened the scoring through Scott Moore after good work from Brett Hodgson, David Faiumu crossing to extend the lead, David Hodgson converting both tries.

Trinity hit back on the half-hour mark when Danny Brough combined with Jason Demetriou for Scott Grix to score at the corner, but the Giants still held an eight-point lead.

The home side saw a Lee Mossop touch down disallowed for obstruction just before the interval, and Tony Martin’s try after the restart, converted by Brough, cut the gap to just two points.

Instead tries from Faiumu and David Hodgson along with two conversions from Brett Hodgson gave the hosts a commanding 24-10 lead.
