Giants into top 8 with Dragons thrashing

Jake Mamo scored four tries as Huddersfield Giants moved into the top eight with a 56-12 demolition of Catalans Dragons.

Tries from Aaron Murphy, Shannon Wakeman and Danny Brough saw the Giants race into the lead before Tony Gigot crossed for the hosts however Mamo touched down his first score in the closing moments of the half.

Brough and Mamo quickly completed their respective braces with Jermaine McGillvary also scoring before Mamo touched down his third and fourth tries in quick succession to reach a half century of points.

Sam Moa went over for a consolation try for the Dragons but Huddersfield deservedly finished on top with McGillvary completing his brace late on.
