DANNY THOMAS marked his return to the Giants with two fine tries as Huddersfield secured a 42-10 Senior Academy triumph at Doncaster Dragons.
The goalkicking half-back also helped create several others in a performance which showed he will prove a valuable asset on his month's loan from Batley Bulldogs.
But Thomas wasn't the only young Giant to shine as coach Lee St Hilaire's side kept their title challenge on track, with half-back partner Thomas Hemingway also at the centre of the success and Danny Williams racing over for a second-half hat trick.
The visitors got off to the perfect start when Hemingway fed Richard Knight to score the opening try after nine minutes, which Hemingway converted.
Doncaster hit back with a try of their own five minutes later.
But the remainder of the half belonged to Huddersfield as they built up a 14-6 lead.
Thomas scored an excellent individual effort in the 28th minute and on the stroke of half-time Hemingway sent Dave Hutchinson racing over.
Although the Dragons replied within three minutes of the restart, it failed to spark a major revival.
Three minutes later Jon Gledhill's break set up Thomas for his second, converted by Hemingway, and the victory charge was on its way.
In the 59th minute Symon Sutherland charged over from a quick tap penalty, and before the end Williams had completed a hat trick, thanks to some excellent approach play from Paul Mennell, Bolu Fagborun and Thomas.
Hemingway added goals to all three tries and a fine victory was complete.
