Huddersfield stun league leaders Warrington

By Michael Hale

Huddersfield Giants picked up their second win of the season with a victory over Super League leaders Warrington Wolves.

Aaron Murphy and Leroy Cudjoe went over either side of half-time in a much improved Giants’ performance.

Danny Brough missed two conversions but added more gloss to the victory with a second-half` penalty and drop goal.
