Huddersfield boss Rick Stone described the Giants’ come-from-behind 18-10 victory over Catalan on Sunday as a “massive” result for the club.
Trailing 10-6 with only eight minutes to play, the Giants went ahead through Sam Rapira before Adam O’Brien’s try ensured there was no way back for the Dragons.
Stone said: “That’s massive for us, absolutely. In the context of the competition it was a pretty important game for us. Every game we play is really important at the moment.
“Catalans are probably tootling around similar to us. We weren’t great, I think both teams weren’t great. There were six or seven errors from both teams in the first half.
“In the end it was good to see the boys get a win. The game opened up a little bit for us right at the death and we were patient enough and hung in there and stayed close enough to give ourselves a chance, and that was important for us in the end.
“I’ve spoken to the boys about ‘will versus skill’ and sometimes the most skillful side wins the game and sometimes the team that wants to win wins the game a little bit more, and that was us today.”
