GIANTS winger Mat Gardner helped Cumbria secure an excellent 28-16 triumph over Tonga at Workington last night.
While the Tongans fielded eight of the team that beat Samoa 18-10 in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday, Gardner was the only Super League player in the host squad.
The Tongans now set their sights on Sunday's massive Federation Shield test against England at the Twickenham Stoop (3.00).
It's a game that should again feature Giants prop Eorl Crabtree in the starting line-up for England.
Fellow Huddersfield prop Paul Jackson is also in action on Sunday for Scotland in Wales (2.30).
