THOMAS HEMINGWAY produced a dazzling display to inspire the Giants to an impressive 52-12 Junior Academy Championship triumph over Salford at The Willows.
The 18-year-old stand-off was oozing with confidence as he plotted the downfall of the City Reds to guarantee Huddersfield a first win of the campaign.
Hemingway's month in the Super League side has obviously done him a power of good, and his on-field leadership also helped bring the best out of his teammates.
The Giants dominated the contest from start to finish, with players all across the park making their presence felt.
Within 10 minutes the visitors had taken the lead with a try from Simon Perry, converted by Hemingway, and there was no looking back.
Four minutes later Joe Flaherty extended the lead with an unconverted score, and even though Darryl King cut the deficit shortly after, it wasn't long before the Giants were powering even further ahead.
Impressive centre Jame Martin grabbed his side's third try in th 29th minute before Hemingway raced over following a superb solo run.
Then seconds before the break second-rower Flaherty crashed over for his second, with Hemingway's goal making it 26-6 at the break.
Within four minutes of the restart Hemingway was over again after supporting a Martin break and 11 minutes later Symon Sutherland plunged over from close range to make it 38-6.
And when Stuart Proctor stormed over for try No8 with a quarter of the contest still to play, a massive score looked on the cards.
But in the closing stages Salford showed some pride, with Simon Adamson finishing off a great move to score a converted try.
That made it 42-12 in the 65th minute, but it was the Giants who finished the stronger.
With eight minutes remaining Chris Lawson crashed over under the posts before Martin completed the scoring with a well-taken close-range effort to bring up the half-century and round off an excellent all-round diaplay.
