Match report: Catalan Dragons 30-14 Huddersfield Giants

In a nutshell
Catalan Dragons finally got their first win of 2014 at the sixth attempt, as they put in a fantastic performance to defeat Paul Anderson’s Huddersfield Giants.

How it unfolded
First half: The first period was all Catalan, as they stormed out of the blocks to lead 14-0 at the break. It could have been different though, had the Giants received a slice of luck. Zeb Taia opened the scoring with a great try, before a fortuitous effort from Louis Anderson was given as a try by Thierry Alibert. A Thomas Bosc penalty just before the hooter put the home side in a commanding position.

Second half: Anderson managed to grab his second try in the opening stages of the second period, to put the Dragons firmly in command. The impressive Morgan Escare then raced away from a try of his own to make it 24-0, and all but confirm the result. However, Huddersfield hit back. Quick tries from Scott Grix and Brett Ferres made it 24-10 all of a sudden, and keep the game alive. But, the superb Elliott Whitehead dived over for a try of his own to cement the result. A late score for Jodie Broughton added some consolation, but a disappointing afternoon all round for the Giants.
