Harvey Livett in action for Huddersfield Giants

Huddersfield Giants claimed an impressive win over Catalans Dragons, but it came at a cost with Harvey Livett being dealt an injury blow.

Utility man Livett left the action early in Huddersfield’s 22-14 win over league leaders Catalans in the south of France on Saturday night.

The club provided an update on Livett on Sunday morning, saying he has been discharged from hospital and will be assessed further once they land back in England.

The club tweeted: “We can provide an update on Harvey Livett, who dislocated his elbow yesterday evening.

“He has been discharged from hospital to re-join the lads and will be assessed further on returning home.

“We’d like to thank everyone involved, including Catalans staff and Perpignan Hospital on looking after Harvey.”

Next up for Huddersfield is a home clash with Wakefield at the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday evening, 7:45pm kick-off.

Catalans Dragons reflects on Huddersfield Giants defeat: ‘We were very disappointing’

The Dragons currently occupy top spot in the Super League table, two points in front of the impressive Leigh.

Dragons coach Steve McNamara has urged his side to learn from their humbling defeat to Huddersfield.

McNamara said: “We were very disappointing tonight.

“We were beaten in most areas of the game and second best all night and we have got to find the reasons for that.

“We managed to stay in the game in the first half but after the break we were awful. And we were looking for a response and we never got it.

“It was a flat performance and the opposition worked harder, moved quicker, tackled harder and ran faster.

“They got the basics right, the things we’ve been doing pretty well so far this season.”

Next up for Catalans is a trip to champions St Helens on Thursday night, 8pm kick-off.
