Need to Knows
Three to Forget
The Giants, former SL leaders of the NFP, gained revenge against Whitehaven, who held them to a 12-12 draw in January.That was the only Premiership point that the Giants have lost this season.
Whitehaven were early scorers in the first half with Rob Jackson and Arron Lester scoring tries and Paul O'Neil landing goals. But after their early flourish they were completely outclassed.The home side were totally in control registering 15 tries.
Top try scorer for the Giants was Stanley Gene who grabbed four touchdowns and hat-tricks were scored by centre Eorl Crabtree and winger Matt Whittaker. Other try scorers were Hefin O'Hare, Darren Turner, David Atkins, Chris Molyneux and Andy Rice.Skipper and loose-forward Steve McNamara landed 13 goals.
