Huddersfield 58-6 Wakefield

Huddersfield sent a message to their play-off rivals with an emphatic 58-6 victory over Wakefield at the Galpharm Stadium.

The Giants ran in ten tries, with ex-Wildcats half-back Danny Brough in the thick of the action, to follow up their 52-0 victory over John Kear’s side earlier in the season.

Kevin Brown set the ball rolling, breaking from inside his own half before finding David Hodgson to score, and Lee Gilmour soon helped the home side extend their advantage with a well taken try down the left.

Darrell Griffin added another four pointer before Brough’s jinking run stretched the Wakefield defence and allowed him to find Shaun Lunt who raced to the line, seeing off the attention of the Wildcats defence.

An excellent team move then resulted in Jermaine McGillvary crossing in the corner, and he then turned provider, helping Leroy Cudjoe to the first of his two tries, as Huddersfield went in 36-0 to the good at the break.

Wakefield stopped the rot early in the second half when Paul Johnson‘s clever pass saw Sean Gleeson crash over, but it proved just a blip, as the Giants continued their dominance.

Scott Grix found his way over against his former club before the excellent Brough danced around the Wildcats full-back to get his name on the try-scorers list, and helped him to a total of 22 points for the game.

Graeme Horne completed the rout, with Brough landing nine out of 10 conversions.
