Huddersfield Giants’ push for a top-four finish in Super League gained momentum as they again won on the road.
Building on wins at Hull FC and Salford Red Devils, head coach Paul Anderson’s team added the scalp of Castleford last night with a 24-16 victory at The Jungle.
A late Eorl Crabtree touchdown stemmed Castleford’s second half flow after the Giants had built an 18-4 half-time lead with tries from former Tiger Craig Huby, Aaron Murphy and Ukuma Ta’ai.
“We definitely controlled the first half pretty well and came up with three tries,” said Anderson. “There were some controversial decisions, but they went our way so we can’t complain. Over a season some go for you and some against.
“But to come to Castleford and take the points we have to be happy.
“We just need to get some rhythm in our game at the moment, but there were some great performances from Brett Ferres, Joe Wardle, Aaron Murphy and Luke Robinson, who had one of his better games.”
Meanwhile, the Giants are being linked with a move to sign Kiwi international prop Sam Rapira, who is leaving NRL outfit New Zealand Warriors at the end of the season.
