Huddersfield Giants 36-12 Bradford Bulls

Huddersfield continued their remarkable rise up the Super League ladder with an emphatic victory over high flying Bradford to put them in an incredible 4th position, just 7 weeks after they were rooted to the bottom of the table.

The Giants not only claimed the two points with the 36-12 win, but sent out a message to the rest of Super League that they have what it takes to challenge the big boys at the top.

Bradford never got in to their rhythm as Huddersfield blew them away with a flawless first half display that saw them 24-0 up at the break. Tries from Stephen Wild, John Skandalis, Stuart Jones and Chris Thorman, together with four Thorman goals, gave the Giants a commanding advantage.

Although Bradford fought back in the second half, scores from Lesley Vainikolo and Ben Harris proved mere consolation, as Thorman added a second try, following Kevin Brown's effort on the hour mark.

After losing their first seven games of the season, Huddersfield have now won their last seven, propelling them in to 4th spot, behind just St Helens, Leeds and Bradford. The Giants now have the best defence in the league.

Not only that, but they ended a 35 year wait for a win over Bradford. Head Coach Jon Sharp was understandably delighted. He said: ""I thought it was our best performance for a whole host of reasons, not least because we came up against a really good team that were very motivated and proud of a record that has stood for over 20 years."
