Full Time Report

It was an enthralling encounter at Lockwood Park as the Huddersfield Giants suffered a late 16-14 defeat to London Broncos.

Both teams defended extremely well in very good conditions. Huddersfield played some good rugby throughout but just could not get the points needed for victory.

The opening exchanges in the first half was great, always tight throughout and it was not until the 20th minute for the first points to be scored. Giants’ hooker Ethan Salm gathered the ball as he made a good run to ground the ball down. Jamie Greenwood successful conversion meant the Giants were 6-0 up.

The Giants then let the Broncos in as they scored just before half time. However, a missed conversion meant that Huddersfield went in to the break leading by two.

In the second half, Huddersfield started extremely well putting London under a lot of pressure and it prevailed as they bagged another try in the 43rd minute. The prop Matty English who put in a great shift made an excellent run as he found Flynn who offloaded to Greenwood who then made a sensational pass to Alex Young as he sprinted his way towards the touchline to touch down.

Young then scored again as a delicate kick through from Greenwood picked out the winger and he pounced to notch a brace of tries. Ingleby missed conversions meant that the Giants were leading by ten.

However, the Giants deflated as two late tries from London both converted meant that Huddersfield lost the game by just two points 16-14.
